Notice of Road Work - Asphalt Rejuvenating Program 2022

Superior Road Projects has been contracted by the Town of Petawawa to apply an asphalt rejuvenating agent to the following sections of our roads:

  • Airport Road
  • Bedard Boulevard
  • Civic Centre Road
  • Herman Street
  • John Street
  • Marquis Drive
  • Mary Street
  • Nile Street
  • Noble Crescent
  • Norman Street
  • Selkirk Street

The work is scheduled to take place between the following dates; Monday, May 16, 2022 through to Friday, May 20, 2022.  All work is weather dependent.

Reclamite is designed to restore/rejuvenate roads that are dry, brittle, starting to break up, exhibiting cracks, loss of aggregate, etc.  the process stops further degradation and extends the life and condition of the roads.  This is a highly cost-effective preventative maintenance technique used to maintain roadway condition and safety.

Reclamite is a three-stage process that will be followed when applying the product:

  • Apply an oil-based mixture by distributor truck which penetrates the asphalt in 30-40 minutes.  Reclamite comes out pink until it starts to break, at that point you will see that the product will start to turn clear.
  • Apply a layer of washed concrete sand on top of the application.
  • Contractor will come back after a predetermined timeframe to sweep up all the excess sand.  If possible, do not drive over treated areas until sanded.  The sand limits the product from vehicle contact during the application stage.

Only one lane of the road will be applied at a time so vehicles will always have access and minimal disruption to the road.  Please make sure to follow all traffic control and flaggers on the project to maintain a safe working environment for both you and the contractor.

This product is environmentally safe and will extend the pavement’s life. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.
