The contractor is anticipated to begin work in late June or early July. Residents who live on the streets that will be paved will receive a notice from the Public Works Department with additional information and where to park while work is being done.
Rehabilitation work includes pavement resurfacing, areas of partial full-depth pavement removal and replacement, roadway base repairs; curb replacement, removal of asphalt ramps and mountable curbs across driveway entrances, partial driveway apron replacement to meet the grade of new curb lines, and sidewalk replacement. When curb and gutter is removed in front of your driveway, you will not be allowed to park in your driveway for 7 to 10 days. This time is needed to give the new concrete sufficient time to "cure" to support the weight of vehicular traffic. Curb and driveway apron replacements will be limited to one side of the street at a time to allow for on-street parking while the new concrete is curing. Also we ask that if you have sprinklers or an invisible fence to flag them.
The city is only removing and replacing the portion of a driveway apron necessary to meet the grades of the newly depressed curb line. Per city code, the “apron” of a private driveway is the responsibility of the property owner. The city has requested that the asphalt and concrete sub-contractors be willing to take on private work to complete the entire apron at the resident’s request. Iroquois Paving Corporation will not take on any private asphalt work. Concrete work is available by contacting Chris Davis of Davis Concrete at 708-388-1100, ext. 102. Concrete work behind the sidewalk requires a building permit from the Building Department. For more information, call 708-687-4050, ext. 1041.
Private work must be arranged by the property owner with the contractor and is at the sole expense of the property owner.
“No Parking – Police Order” signs will be posted by the contractor before work begins on that side of the street. During work on the roadway pavement surfaces, no on-street parking will be allowed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please park on neighboring side streets or in your driveway. The contractor will post “NO PARKING” signs and deliver a notice to your home at least 24 hours before roadway pavement surface work begins on your block. Working hours for the contractor are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday thru Saturday.
Streets with fire lanes will be maintained as fire lanes. When necessary, the fire lane will be temporarily shifted to the other side of the street to accomplish the concrete curb repairs. Please be mindful of the posted fire lane signs by parking on the other side of the street.
With outdoor construction work, the schedule of the contractor is weather dependent and may change weekly or daily. Questions? contact Public Works at 708-535-4090 or submit a service request form.
