Project Description
A street maintenance program is approved annually by the mayor and Board of Trustees. Various village-owned and accepted streets are scheduled for rehabilitation this year. The purpose of this program is to reconstruct streets which have deteriorated over and above normal maintenance.

Miscellaneous roadway patching will occur in areas throughout the village.

Inclusions
The program includes replacement of hazardous sidewalks, repair or replacement of non-functioning curbs and gutters, milling of the existing street, and new surface layer of asphalt. This program does not include:
  • Replacement of driveways
  • Replacement of driveway aprons
  • Entry walks
  • Functioning curb and gutter meeting engineering standards

Please note: The above items are the responsibility of the homeowner.  Replacement cost is the responsibility of the homeowner. Remember that any driveway reconstruction / replacement requires a building permit.

Delays & Concerns
Street rehabilitation is unfortunately subject to weather conditions. Most materials and construction methods do not fair well in poor weather. Bad weather can therefore delay the project for a few days. We ask for your patience as we wait for better weather.

Most importantly, public safety is a primary concern for the village, contractor, and residents during the rehabilitation process. We ask that you please drive slowly and cautiously through the work areas. We realize that the project presents a significant inconvenience to many residents. Your patience during the construction process is greatly appreciated!
