Road Program - June 2017


The Road Program is scheduled to begin the week of June 26 on Linden Drive and proceeding in the following order:

  • Linden Avenue from Maple Drive to Forestview Drive
  • Lisa Lane from Willowick Drive to Craig Drive
  • North Exit Drive from Knottingwood to Cicero Avenue
  • Forest Trail from Lockwood Avenue to the cul-de-sac
  • Laramie Avenue from 147th Street to 148th Street
  • 163rd Street from Long Avenue to Central Avenue
  • Grove Avenue from 160th Street to North End
The road program's work involves pavement resurfacing, areas of partial full-depth pavement removal and replacement, roadway base repairs; curb replacement, removal of asphalt ramps and mountable curbs across driveway entrances, partial driveway apron replacement to meet the grade of new curb lines, and sidewalk replacement. 
 
If curb and gutter is removed in front of your driveway, you will not be allowed to park in your driveway for 7 to 10 days.  This time is needed to give the new concrete sufficient time to "cure" to support the weight of vehicular traffic. Concrete work, including curb and driveway apron replacements, will be limited to one side of the street at a time to allow for on-street parking while the new concrete is curing.
 
The city is only removing and replacing the portion of a driveway apron necessary to meet the grades of the newly depressed curb line. Per City Code, the “apron” of a private driveway is the responsibility of the property owner. The city has requested that the asphalt and concrete sub-contractors be willing to take on private work to complete the entire apron at the resident’s request. Iroquois Paving Corporation will not take on any private asphalt work. Concrete work is available through Chris Davis of Davis Concrete at 708-388-1100, ext. 102. Concrete work behind the sidewalk requires a building permit, please contact the Building Department at 708-687-4050, ext. 1041.  

Any arrangements for private driveway work must be made by the property owner with the contractor and is at the sole expense of the property owner.
 

Parking


No Parking – Police Order will be posted by the Contractor before work begins for that side of the street. During work on the roadway pavement surfaces, no on-street parking will be allowed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.   Please park on neighboring side streets or in your driveway. The contractor will post no parking signs and hand-deliver a notice to your home at least 24 hours before roadway pavement surface work begins on your block. Working hours for the contractor are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday - Saturday. 

Fire Lanes


Streets with Fire Lanes will be maintained as Fire Lanes. When necessary, the Fire Lane will be temporarily shifted to the other side of the street to accomplish the concrete curb repairs. Please be mindful of the posted fire lane signs and park on the other side of the street!
