2017 Annual Asphalt and Concrete Maintenance

The City of Saint Charles awarded contracts to Pace Construction, Andale Construction and Sweetens Concrete Services to perform street resurfacing, sidewalk, curb and concrete repairs over this construction season. 

Crack Seal
Sweetens will begin sealing and filling cracks in designated areas in late Spring 2017. Cracks will be sealed to prevent the intrusion of water and other materials into the surface and to reinforce the adjacent pavement. 

High Density Mineral Bond
HDMB was developed to meet the demand for effective asphalt preservation on residential roadways without the negative side effects of chip or slurry seals. HDMB was specifically engineered to preserve the native asphalt binder. Effectively preserving the asphalt binder before oxidative damage occurs is recognized as the most cost-effective strategy for managing asphalt pavement. When the application is complete, HMDB will help extend the life of our asphalt roads. Andale Construction will begin applying High Density Mineral Bond (HDMB) to various area streets the week of June 5th. 

NovaChip, Thinlay and Mill 
NovaChip®/UltraWear™ is a preventative maintenance tool used to help extend the life of a road by placing a thin open graded hot mix asphalt over polymer modified asphalt emulsion through a special, self-priming paver.
Thinlay asphalt successfully extends the life of structurally sound pavements. Thinlay asphalt can be  5 ⁄8 inch or greater depending on surface conditions.
Milling removes anywhere from just enough pavement thickness to level and smooth to a full depth removal and replacement. 
Pace Construction will complete these tasks in designated areas of Saint Charles. 

Concrete Maintenance 
M&H Concrete Contractors will be replacing slabs, sidewalk sections and curbs at various locations through the City.
