Residents in several Cedar Park neighborhoods can expect to see the life span of their streets extended this summer.

Beginning sometime in June, Pavement Restoration Inc. will apply almost 500,000 square yards of Reclamite Asphalt Rejuvenator to residential roadways.

Reclamite, which lasts four to six years, seals minor cracking and extends the life cycle of streets, said Chris Brickey, the city's capital projects manager. He described the treatment to the Cedar Park City Council at a May 25 meeting as “a moisturizer for asphalt.”

The city selects residential streets for the project each year based on their age and need, Brickey said. Cedar Park City Council approved this year's project at a May 25 meeting by authorizing an agreement with the company not to exceed $620,472. Funding for the project is allocated in the city’s fiscal year 2023 budget.

The exact start date for the treatment is still being determined as the city begins working through the contracting process, Brickey said. The entire project is expected to last six to eight weeks.

The following neighborhoods will receive this year's treatment:
  • Trento
  • Ranch at Deer Creek
  • Cypress Canyon
  • Twin Creeks Country Club
  • Bella Vista
  • Reserve at Twin Creeks
  • Caballo Ranch
  • Walsh Trails
  • Park at Bushy Creek
What to expect
  • Around a day before the application begins, flyers will be distributed to residents about when to move their cars from the street, what the treatment is and what they should expect.
  • Residents should remove their cars from the road during the project’s two-day span.
  • Drivers are asked to follow instructions, directions from flaggers and speed limits.
  • Treated streets should not be driven on until sanded.
Day 1
  • A distributor truck will apply emulsion and let it penetrate the asphalt for 30 to 40 minutes.
  • A washed concrete sand layer will be applied.
Day 2
  • A street sweeper will sweep excess sand.
“The application stage is visually messy in appearance, but once the roads are swept the condition will be much cleaner, and within a few weeks the treatment is virtually undetectable, and the road returns to its natural coloring,” Brickey said.
