Improvement Programs

Capital Improvement Projects

Each year, the Village Engineers determine which roads will be improved based on a number of factors such as condition, age and volume of traffic. The Village uses pavement management software to determine the condition of our local streets. The software program estimates the rate of pavement degradation and recommends an optimal rehabilitation schedule.

Crack Sealing 
This program is designed to perform preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced asphalt streets throughout the Village by sealing cracks that have developed. The goal of the program is to extend the life cycle of the pavement. Pavement crack sealing is one of the best and most cost effective preventive maintenance techniques to prolong the life cycle of asphalt pavement.

Pavement Marking Program 
This is an annual maintenance program to place new pavement markings with a thermoplastic material on streets throughout the Village. The priorities for striping include school zones and school crosswalks, the business districts and high volume streets.

Street Sweeping
The sweeping of Village streets continues to provide manybenefits to residents and the community. Street sweeping is effective atremoving both large and small pollutants that collect along the Village’sStreets. Sweepers collect and remove paper, refuse materials, leaves and otherdebris which can collect in the gutters. These types of debris are consideredpollutants, thereby threaten the storm water collection system and also blockstorm water inlets which results in localized flooding during heavyprecipitation. Equally important, is the collection of metal particles andhazardous waste left behind from passing vehicles which are extremely harmfulto the environment.
