City to apply preservation solution to select streets

By Herald Staff

JASPER — As part of the City of Jasper’s ongoing infrastructure street maintenance, the Jasper Street Department contractor RejuvTec will be applying a Reclamite preservation solution to streets beginning around 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday and continuing through approximately 5 p.m. each day.

This process will continue for several days throughout the week, with the possibility of extending into the next week, as a result of inclement weather conditions or any other unforeseen events.

Reclamite is an asphalt rejuvenating emulsion that restores the original binder back to its proper balance.

All vehicles must be removed from the street being treated prior to 7:30 a.m.

Affected residents will be notified (via door hanger) in advance of the treatment on their street.

Motorists will not be allowed on these streets prior to the contractor removing barricades. Once the barricades have been removed, extreme caution is suggested as the surface will be very slick (with the sand atop) and may result in solution becoming attached to vehicles.

The sand will be removed within two days.

Trash, recycling and yard waste collection will proceed as normal and must be out no later than 7 a.m. for pickup, as the city's heavy trucks will not be traveling on the fresh application.

The affected streets are (not necessarily in this order): Prince Street from Evans Lane to Hannah Lane; Evans Lane from Kluemper Road to west end; Sunshine Drive from Fifth Avenue to Evans Lane; Sunshine Drive from Division Road to Shelyn Drive; all of Omega Drive; West Fifth Street east of Lechner Lane; Circle Pine Drive, all cul de sac; Sapphire Drive from Brescher Drive to Pebble Drive; Pebble Drive from Savannah Drive to 490 West; Keusch Lane from Pebble Drive to south end; Carroll Street from 10th Street to 13th Street; Emily Street from 13th Street to 15th Street; West Eighth Street from Newton Street to Dorbett Street; West Ninth Street from Bartley Street to Dorbett Street; Briarcliff Parkway from Meridian Road to Maplecrest Boulevard; Cedar Crest Court, all cul de sac; Timberbrook Court, all cul de sac; Oakmount Court, all cul de sac; Pine Meadow Court, all cul de sac; Leslie Drive from Northwood Avenue to 33rd Street; Manor Drive from Reyling Drive to 36th Street; Mannheim Road from 42nd Street to 43rd Street; Baden Strasse from 43rd Street to 45th Street; West 43rd Street from Baden Strasse to Mannheim Road; West 45th Street from Baden Strasse to west end; Common Drive from US 231 to dead end; Brosmer Street from 26th Street to 30th Street; New Birch Drive from Fieldcrest Lane to Portersville Road; Thornhill Drive from Marywood Drive to Portersville Road; Marywood Drive from Fieldcrest Lane to north end; Marywood Drive from Fieldcrest Lane to south end; Fieldcrest Lane from Portersville Road to east end; Vine Street from Eighth Street to 14th Street; Main Street from Ninth Street to 15th Street (no 13th Street intersection).
