The Channahon Road Management Program (CRMP) is increasing its emphasis on preservative treatments for asphalt roadways. Starting in 2012, the Village will annually sealcoat 8 – 10 miles of asphalt pavement surface with GSB-88 sealer and rejuvenator. The sealer is applied with a tank truck followed by sanding for traction. The sealer typically cures (dries) in 2-6 hours.
Asphalt preservation treatments take place at the pavement surface and do not structurally disturb the pavement. They protect the uppermost pavement layer from deterioration caused by sun, rain and freeze/thaw cycles. Asphalt preservation is extremely inexpensive as compared to structural repairs, such as resurfacing and reconstruction, while adding years to pavement life cycles. Preservative treatments are also far less disruptive to residents than structural repairs with a few hours of inconvenience compared to several weeks with resurfacing and reconstruction.
The Village of Channahon has awarded a contract to American Road Maintenance for application of GSB-88 asphalt preservative to certain village streets.
Working hours will be weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Parking on roadways is not allowed during working hours. Traffic will also be prohibited from traveling on freshly applied sealer, sand, and during curing times of 1-6 hours. However, at least one lane of traffic will remain open to two-way traffic. To avoid tracking sealer onto driveways and sidewalks, the Village asks that you plan to park on alternate streets and avoid accessing your driveway during working hours. The Village is not responsible for asphalt sealer tracked onto driveways or sidewalks.
The Village has already notified residents by postcard if their street is part of this work. The Contractor will also provide an additional 24 hour notice (by door hanger) before work begins on your street.
