As work to improve road conditions advances, residents may have noticed that navigating streets throughout the Village has become difficult. Many streets in the Village have had their top surface removed or milled in the last month in preparation for asphalt patching.
The Village apologizes for this inconvenience and realizes that this activity can be frustrating to drivers, as well as the residents who live on the affected streets.
Crews are in the process of working to complete these improvements as quickly and as safely as possible. Paving near schools is underway so that these streets are completed before school is back in session. Work will continue the week of August 22, 2011 on the south side of town on streets that were first milled. Crews will work towards the north side of town and the entire process should take between 5 to 6 weeks to complete from the time milling occurred.
While this type of maintenance is done annually using an outside firm, this year the Village is augmenting this activity by performing patching with in-house crews. This will result in a cost savings, as well as a 50% increase in the number of streets that will be improved. Due to the availability of rental equipment used to prepare the streets, all streets scheduled for patching were milled in succession, rather than milling a section first, then paving it before continuing on another street.
Thank you for your patience as crews work to complete these vital roadway improvements in advance of the winter season.
