Asphalt Maintenance Involves Sealant on Some City Roads

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – The City of Marshfield shared that it will be performing asphalt rejuvenating maintenance on city streets. CAM, LLC is scheduled to do asphalt rejuvenating maintenance work starting August 29, 2022 through Friday, September 2, 2022 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Why is this product being applied to my road?

CAM, LLC will be applying Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent to some local roads in Marshfield. Reclamite is a product designed to extend the life of the pavement by sealing the pavement from the elements. This penetrating sealer is the most widely used pavement rejuvenator in the market for over 50 years, and will assist in minimizing the need for more costly and disruptive methods of street repair.

How long does the process take?

Once crews begins work on your street, the process will usually only take one to two hours. Please obey all signs and crew direction. Once the road has been treated with lime
screenings, the road will be fully opened to traffic.

When can I drive on the road?

You can exit your driveway and drive through the work area, but please go slow
and stay on the area treated with sand/screenings. Please be advised that driving onto a driveway before the contractor is finished applying the limestone/sand may cause vehicle tires to track some of the product onto driveways and sidewalks. These markings are not permanent, and will naturally fade within a few weeks.

When will the road be cleaned up?

After the product is applied, an application of limestone screenings will be
applied to the road. This is not permanent. The screenings will be swept up in a day or two after the product is applied.

These agents are environmentally safe and extend the pavements life. If caution and reduced speeds are taken when driving on recently treated roadways, the transfer of material from the roadway to your vehicle is unlikely. If you do have product that has transferred to your vehicle, it is non corrosive and will not damage your vehicle. A bug and tar remover (available at any local auto parts store) will safely remove any material
on your vehicle.

If you have a lawn sprinkling system that sprays or drains onto the street pavement you should turn it off for the day in which work will be performed on your street and one day following the treatment.

If you have questions, contact the City of Marshfield Street Division at 715-486-2000.
