Road Construction Updates

 

Capital Improvement Plans

Each year, the Village Engineers determine which roads will be improved based on a number of factors such as condition, age and volume of traffic. The Village uses pavement management software to determine the condition of our local streets. The software program estimates the rate of pavement degradation and recommends an optimal rehabilitation schedule.

We are pleased to inform you that the road resurfacing improvements in 2017 for Phase II was approved March 13, 2017. The work proposed consists of 1.40 miles of roadway to be resurfaced or reconstructed as part of Road Program along various streets within the Village limits.

Annual Maintenance Programs

Sidewalk Replacement Program

This is an annual maintenance program to replace damaged sections of sidewalk throughout the Village. The program focuses on replacing sidewalks with trip hazards. The Engineering Department conducts a survey every few years to evaluate the current condition of sidewalks throughout the Village.

Curb Replacement Program

This is an annual maintenance program to replace hazardous, broken and missing curb throughout the Village. The engineering Department conducts a survey every few years to evaluate the current condition of curbs throughout the Village.

Crack Sealing

This program is designed to perform preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced asphalt streets throughout the Village by sealing cracks that have developed. The goal of the program is to extend the life cycle of the pavement. Pavement crack sealing is one of the best and most cost effective preventive maintenance techniques to prolong the life cycle of asphalt pavement.

Pavement Marking Program

This is an annual maintenance program to place new pavement markings with a thermoplastic material on streets throughout the Village. The priorities for striping include school zones and school crosswalks, the business districts and high volume streets.
