Road Rejuvenation

Road rejuvenation is scheduled to begin on villa roads located within District 10 Tuesday, May 9, 2017 through Friday, May 19, 2017.  Door knockers will be delivered as a reminder the week before work begins and signs will be placed at your Villa entry approximately two weeks before work begins.  Please check the signs at your entry for dates of application and check daily for any changes which may occur that are out of our control.


The product being applied to the roads is called Reclamite and its purpose is to rebind the asphalt from the loss through sunlight, rain and oxidation which causes raveling (the aggregate coming loose from the road).  It re-bonds the components of the roadway and adds a layer of water intrusion protection so the roads can last longer.  Please be aware there will be no color change to the road once the product dries as this product was designed to rejuvenate and help repel water intrusion and not darken the road.  This process allows driving to resume on the roadway 30-45 minutes after the product has been applied.  Please use caution and pay attention to the workers at the entrance and throughout your villa that are available to guide you during the process.  If you happen to drive through a wet area before entering your driveway, you may notice tire tracks as if you went through water.  Please do not be alarmed – when this product dries, it will be clear and will not be noticeable. 


We strongly recommend you follow all instructions given to you by the workers in your Villa and the information provided on the doorknocker you will receive.  Some of these instructions include no car washing, no parking in the street or in the guest parking area.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we complete this necessary road maintenance to extend the life of the road infrastructure.

It is extremely important that you do not run any irrigation or wash your car the day before, the day of and the day after application. The product being used needs to completely soak into the asphalt on a dry road to ensure a successful application.
All multimodal trails will also receive a reclamite application. This project will be a night time operation and should have little to no impact on cart traffic.
