Upcoming Asphalt Rejuvenation

CDOT is introducing a new pavement management technique called asphalt rejuvenation to our more newly paved streets throughout the city.  Being completed by contract, rejuvenation involves an application of a coating that extends the life of newly paved streets.  Because the rejuvenator extends the life of our paved surfaces, it means that we save money over time and have streets that retain their newer, high quality for longer before needing to be repaved again.  The application of the coating does require full access to our streets and limited use by the general public for a short period of time so we are notifying property owners, residents, and businesses in the affected areas of these upcoming short inconveniences while we perform this work.   This year we are performing this work on several dozen of the streets that have been paved with a recent paving contract.

The following roads will see contract crews performing rejuvenation on Friday, April 16:
Hansley Drive, Cecelia Drive, Hancock Road, Nautical Way, Swan Road

The following roads will see contract crews performing rejuvenation on Monday, April 19:
Russell Street, Vinewood Drive, Beck Avenue, Jarnigan Avenue, Stuart Street

The schedule of this project is subject to change if inclement weather takes place.
