The Municipal Services and Engineering Services Departments are responsible for the annual improvements of roadway infrastructure within the Village. Responsibilities include design and review of engineering plans, inspection of construction, and communication with citizens in project areas. Roadway projects are primarily selected due to existing pavement condition. Pavement condition is measured using the Modified Pavement Condition Index (MPCI) rating system. Please visit the interactive map below for the most recent roadway ratings and information on the MPCI.
Other important factors reviewed when scheduling future projects are underground water/sewer infrastructure, American's with Disabilities (ADA) Improvements, storm water control and streetscape implementation.
This page includes the general information that residents should understand about road construction projects. Please read all material on this page before moving to the individual project pages. This page includes the in-depth information of work that can be done in any type of road construction project. The individual project pages, on the left side of this page, will provide you with a brief outline of work that will be done for that particular project.
Construction Updates & "Staying Informed"
One of the most important aspects of a successful roadway project is communication with residents. Road construction updates will be posted in the "News Flash" section on the right side of this page and each project specific page. Updates are typically sent out weekly. These updates will contain information on the weekly schedule of construction, water shut offs, driveway accessibility, and emergency situations.
To sign up to receive weekly updates in an e-mail and/or text message, follow the steps below.
- Click on "Stay Informed" on the left side of this page.

All driveway aprons will be removed and replaced during the reconstruction process. Aprons will be replaced with standard concrete unless the resident requested the use of asphalt in writing otherwise. New aprons will meet the width of the existing driveway at the sidewalk and taper 3' on both sides at the curb line. These specifications can be found within the Village Code (See 8-2-8 of Village Code).
Any stairs located within the Village right-of-way will be removed and the area will be restored with sod.
It is recommended that residents mark private sprinkler systems prior to the start of construction. Marking includes placing stakes or flags at sprinkler heads and locations of piping in the parkway and within 3 feet of the house side of the public walk. If the sprinkler system is not marked, no attempt can be made to minimize damage to the
system during construction.
