Weather permitting, on Thursday, October 19 & continuing into Friday the 20th, Felix A. Marino Co will begin applying Rejuvenator, a Penetrating Surface Treatment used to maintain and extend asphalt pavement quality and life.This will be a mechanical application of emulsified petroleum resin to the road surface in conjunction with the filling and bonding of random pavement breaches.
The application process may include an additional application of sand. As part of this essential maintenance, affected roads will be temporarily closed for a few hours to ensure the seamless integration of the sealant.
The following roads will receive this treatment: Houston Ave, Bedford Circle, Morgan Drive and Bonnet View. This project was approved by the Town Council at their meeting on June 19, 2023.
Tips for dealing with the treatment:
- Stay off fresh sealant: For the initial time period, please avoid driving or walking on the freshly sealed areas and pay attention to any posted signage, including driving on the the opposite side of the roadway to allow the sealant to penetrate.
- Be mindful of furniture: If you have outdoor furniture or vehicles, move them off the street while the process is happening.
- Keep you pets indoors: Ensure your furry friends stay inside during the application.
- Report issues: If you notice any concerns post-application, please contact Felix A Marino at 978-532-3838.
Crack Sealing/Pavement Preservation
WEATHER PERMITTING, Sealcoating, Inc. will be in town starting Monday, the 11th to treat roads that are cracked and in need of a minimal preservation treatment. This project will take approximately two weeks, providing the weather cooperates.
Crack sealing is a proactive measure that greatly reduces potholes and other future problems and is a critical line of defense against water infiltration. It lowers the overall cost of pavement preservation over time and extends the road life by 2 to 5 years.
The Department of Public Works is utilizing pavement data from the Pavement Management Study completed by BETA Group to identify those roads that can best benefit from this treatment. Those roads selected are in the following sections/neighborhoods: West Passage, Pettaquamscutt Lake Shores, Edgewater, Great Island. Not all roads in the neighborhoods will receive the treatment, just those identified. Clarke Rd, Glendaway Dr and Martin Rd will also be crack sealed.
Weather permitting, on Thursday, August 24th, Safe Sidewalks/Precision Concrete Cutting will begin repair work on selected areas of sidewalks on the following roads: Caswell St., Beach St., Matthewson St, & Ocean Road.
Precision Concrete Cutting reach the edges of every sidewalk, we can remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location. Trip hazards caused by cracked concrete or located in hard-to-reach places such as in gutters or adjacent to a wall will be eliminated without any damage to nearby objects.
Our method takes very little time, with minimal disruptions to pedestrians using the sidewalk. The result is a safe, clean-cut walking path provided at a greater value than any other method.
