Edge Grinding Operations

The third phase of roadway asphalt edge grinding and resurfacing operations will start on August 21, 2017. Weather permitting; this operation will last approximately three weeks.

Driveways will mostly be accessible throughout this operation; however, drivers will need to exercise caution when entering and leaving driveways. We request drivers traverse patched areas and driveway approaches slowly. If you feel that you would rather park on the street, you may do so. The Police Department will not issue tickets in areas affected by roadway work while construction is in progress.

Roadway asphalt edge grinding and resurfacing is a program developed by the Public Works Department as an intermediate maintenance step to help prolong the life of streets that were not scheduled for reconstruction. For streets to qualify for this program, they must be in generally good condition throughout the center lane, but failing and breaking up near the curb and gutter line. Those failing portions of the street are then milled and resurfaced with hot mix asphalt (HMA).

For phase three, the following locations have been identified in need of repair:

Roosevelt, Davis to Cul-De-Sac (East Side)

George, Pine to Bristol (North Side)

Grove, Pine to Newbury (North Side)

Wing, Ridge to Chestnut (South Side)

White Oak, Fernandez to Wilke (North Side)

Park, Highland to Arlington Heights Road, (South Side)

As scheduling and weather allows, more locations may be added to phase three. If you have any questions or desire additional information, please contact Glenn Adams, Public Works Street Unit Foreman at 847.368.5837 or
