Schedule / Updates
2020 Road Program is Complete. The 2021 Road Program is underway.
2021 General Road Program Scope
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 Road Program was reduced by approximately $600,000. The roads proposed in the 2021 Road Program are the roads removed from the 2020 Road Program. While the City can absorb two years of reduced road programs, it is not advisable to stretch the roads out too far, as there will be an increase in costly pavement reconstruction projects instead of the typical resurfacing project.
The following streets are included in the 2021 Road Program:
- Huskie Highway
- Riverside Avenue
- Waverly Avenue: Riverside Avenue to IL Route 59
- Cantera Village
- Carpenter Court
- Fowler Circle
- Kline Circle
- McCormick Lane
- Millard Circle
There will be a short period of time when impacted residents will experience limited access to their driveway. The limited access will occur during the curb and gutter removal and replacement and grinding and paving phases that occur directly in front of their home.
On streets with existing curb and gutter and public sidewalk, damaged and / or deteriorated pieces of that concrete infrastructure will be replaced with new concrete.
When sidewalk or curb and gutter is replaced next to a driveway apron, the aprons will be treated as follows:
- Asphalt - The contractor will typically saw-cut the asphalt approximately two feet from the edge(s) of the sidewalk or curb and gutter being replaced. The reason for this is the asphalt is typically damaged when the curb and gutter is removed. The asphalt will only be patched.
- Brick - The affected bricks will be removed with the curb and gutter, and stacked next to the driveway apron. Once the new curb and gutter is poured, the contractor will relay the bricks in the driveway apron.
- Concrete - The curb and gutter can typically be removed without damaging the concrete driveway apron, so patching is not necessary. This assumes the driveway apron is in good shape. If it is not in good shape, this will most likely require some patching, in which case the contractor will saw cut and remove and replace a narrow section along the back of curb that is being replaced.
