This newsletter is to inform you that the 2016 Crack Sealing Program is tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, September 19, 2016. Construction is scheduled to be completed by Friday, October 14, 2016.
The City is providing this newsletter for those residents that may be directly affected by the construction activities. The project consists of crack sealing various streets throughout the City, including the Forest Trails Subdivision, Old Heidelberg Area, and Joliet Street between IL Route 59 and Geneva Street.
The proposed work involves sawcutting, or routing, primary cracks in the pavement and sealing those cracks at various City streets adjacent to your property. The main reasons for this street maintenance program are to protect the street surface and extend the pavement life expectancy. Please be aware that airborne dust will result during crack routing and compressed air cleaning operations. You are advised to close all windows to prevent dust from entering your home and/or vehicle(s) during the duration of the construction activities.
During operations, it is essential that no cars be in the way of the contractor’s equipment. Please avoid parking on the street while this work is being performed. The material can be driven over shortly after sealing operations and dry sand may also be used to prevent tracking from the tires. The material should be completely cured within a period of 24 to 48 hours, depending on the weather conditions.
Please note that construction activities are scheduled between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM on Saturday at all project locations.
If you should have any questions regarding the 2016 Crack Sealing Program, please contact Kevin VanDeWoestyne, Project Manager, with Thomas Engineering Group, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (630) 293-2255 ext. 524.
For your safety and the safety of the workers, please obey all traffic control signs and flagging operations during the construction process. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience in this manner.
