Last Updated: July 25, 2016
Annual maintenance work is now underway on nearly 5 miles of Mokena streets. Due to the volume involved, this work will take roughly 8-10 weeks to complete.
Mokena's street maintenance program contains five steps (outlined below), and is set up like an assembly line.
- Sawcutting of curbs and sidewalks.
- Removal and replacement of curbs and sidewalks. Old concrete is removed and new concrete is poured in its place.
- Grinding of asphalt. 2" of old asphalt is taken off the top of the street through a grinding process.
- Pavement patching. Any spots in the street that need extra attention are patched with asphalt.
- A final new layer of asphalt is placed.
Once the first step is started and/or completed on your street, it could be a week or longer before the next step gets started. While you may experience some inconveniences during construction, resurfaced streets are a positive outcome once completed, and represent a lasting investment in our community's assets.
Below is a list of the streets that are part of this year's program, as well as a map. Check back weekly for updates on what work is being done in which areas. Feel free to contact us at (708) 479-3900 with any questions or concerns you may have about the program. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
