Your Annual Street Maintenance Program
Work began on July 28, 2014, on nearly 7 miles of your Mokena streets. Due to the volume of the work involved in this project, this work should take roughly 6-8 weeks to complete. The program contains five steps (outlined below), and is set up like an assembly line.
1. Sawcutting of the curb on your street: Make the cuts in the curbs where the old concrete will be removed and replaced.
2. Removal and replacement of the curb: The old concrete is removed and new concrete is poured in its place.
3. Grinding of asphalt: 1.5" of the old asphalt is taken off the top of the street through a grinding process.
4. Pavement patching: Any spots in the street that need extra attention are patched.
5. A final new layer of asphalt is placed.
Once the first step is started and/or completed on your roadway, it could be a week or longer before the next step gets started. While you may experience some inconvenience during construction, resurfaced streets are a positive outcome once completed, representing a great investment in your 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. Please contact us at (708) 479-3900 with any questions or concerns you may have about the program. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
