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 Tuesday, April 20:
Avalon Hills Drive
The following roads will see contract crews performing rejuvenation on Wednesday, April 21:
O Neal Road
The schedule of this project is subject to change if inclement weather takes place.
If temperatures do not rise above 55 on Wednesday, all scheduled work for that day will be pushed to Thursday.
