Motorists are encouraged to slow down when driving through or near any road construction site and be alert for construction workers. Once the surface is removed and before the new layer of asphalt is applied, the street will have a rough surface. Drivers, cyclist and pedestrians should use caution, especially near protruding manhole covers.

The Village’s street improvement program is underway. Two components of the project currently in progress are:

  1. Concrete removal and repairs throughout the project area.  The contractor is starting curb replacement on Slocum Lake Rd and Brown St. The work on Slocum Lake Rd will require traffic entering and exiting the Country Ridge subdivision to be detoured to Brown St for five to seven days. The entrance will reopen during the week of September 12.
  2. Asphalt grinding on Nancy Ct, Barbara Lane, Garland Rd, Van Buren Ave, Monroe Ave, Edgewater Parkway, Washington Ave, Jackson Ave. The existing asphalt will be removed to prepare for new layers.
