Street Work to Begin Soon

Today the Village received bids for the 2018 Street Paving Program! I plan to take this item to Council on Tuesday, May 8th, for approval so work can get started.  The anticipated contractor is the JK Meurer Corporation.

Work will be performed on the following streets:

Jewel Lane

Jewel will have certain areas of curbing removed and replaced; some full depth repair work done in the worst areas; and a total pavement planning and resurfacing.

Foxworth Lane

Foxworth will have total pavement planning and resurfacing.

Handel Lane

Handel will have certain areas of curbing removed and replaced; some full depth repair work done in the worst areas; and a total pavement planning and resurfacing.

Carini Lane, Hadley Road (the cul de sac), and Junefield Avenue will all have crack sealing work.  In an earlier article about pot holes I explained crack-sealing.  Just to review, it is a tool that can help to prevent surface cracks from taking in water.  Crack-sealing is exactly that – cracks are sealed with a tar-like substance.  These are those dark squiggly lines you might notice on streets and parking lots. It may not be very attractive but it really prolongs the life of the pavement.

After Council approves the contract, the next step will be the pre-construction meeting.  I will provide project specifics after that meeting.  Please check back!
