Pavement Rejuvenator Improvements, IP 23-09

Construction Update

April 5, 2023

On Tuesday, March 28, Corrective Asphalt Materials (CAM), was approved by through consent agenda the 2023 Pavement Rejuvenator Improvements project in the amount of $98,710.60 for the improvements. The improvements are anticipated to occur between July and August. City Staff has begun working with the Contractor to set up a pre-construction meeting. During the pre-construction meeting, the Contractor will provide information to the City including; contact information for themselves and their subcontractors, a detailed project schedule, proposed work hours and methods of construction, plans for traffic control, and other construction related information. Staff will be sending a letter out to impacted property owners with more information, once a firmer schedule has been determined.

Please contact me by email at or phone (763) 433-9893 with any questions related to this project in general.

Rejuvenator Use History:

In 2019, the City Council indefinitely suspended sealcoat improvements due to observed pavement stripping under sealcoat issues, which causes approximately the top inch of pavement to strip away from the underlying pavement. These areas of striping originally show as small spots in the surface of the pavement, but quickly migrate across the pavement into large sections.

In alignment with many other metro cities confronted with these same pavement issues, Staff feels pavement rejuvenators will provide the greatest overall benefit at the lowest cost. The City is proposing to use Reclamite, a maltene-based petroleum product with the ability to penetrate into asphalt pavement and restore reactive components (maltenes) that have been lost due to the natural process of oxidation.

Reclamite has been used nationally for more than 50 years and is proven to add 5 to 7 years of service life to pavements. The application is indented to be performed on pavements 5 years old or less. 


2023 Proposed Rejuvenator Improvements

A map with street segment summary for the 2023 Pavement Rejuvenator Improvements may be seen here. The project proposes to cover 4.04 miles (87,850 square yards) of bituminous pavement across 5 MSA street segments within the City. Because of a larger crack seal improvement program in 2023, Staff focused on MSA street segments, which will use MSA maintenance funding. The pavements selected are 6 years old or less and include both reconstructed and overlay street segments.

More information on Reclamite can be found on Corrective Asphalt Material’s in the brochure listed here.
