Residential Sidewalk Replacement - COMPLETE

Project Description
The Village maintains over 73 miles of public sidewalk throughout the community. Each year, the Village replaces sidewalk square areas based on the structural condition of the concrete (cracking, spalling or deterioration), heaved sections (trip hazards), excessive sloping and poor drainage. The primary goal of the program is to maintain a safe and functional pedestrian sidewalk system.

Residential sidewalk replacement in the Village is broken into three areas and is inspected on a 3-year cycle. This year, the replacement work will be focused on the east half of Area 3 as highlighted in the story map here. The Village estimates that we will replace approximately 30,000 square feet of sidewalk this year. 

  • Total Project Cost: $125,000
  • Project Contractor: Schroeder & Schroeder, Inc.
  • Project Start Date: July 22, 2019 
  • Project Completion Date: August 2019 (COMPLETE)
  • Project Manager: Donald Kirk, General Superintendent
  • Resident Impacts: Temporary sidewalk closures, Parkway restoration for impacted areas, Please mark any sprinkler heads in the parkway 
  • Initial Notification Letter: View letter here
  • Construction Update: (Posted August 19, 2019): Construction on the residential sidewalk replacement program is now complete. 
  • (Posted July 24, 2019): Construction is underway on the residential sidewalk replacement project. Sidewalk and curb and gutter segments identified for replacement have already been marked with pink paint. Tentatively, the Village anticipates the project lasting 2-3 weeks. Impact to surrounding homes should be minimal, however, if you have any sprinkler heads in the parkway, we recommend marking them. 

Downtown Sidewalk Paver Restoration

Project Description
Fiscal Year 2020 marks the second year of a five-year Downtown Sidewalk Brick Paver Restoration Project. There is approximately 70,000 square feet of brick paver sidewalk in the downtown and this year’s program will restore an estimated 12,000 square feet on the south side of Park Avenue from Greenwood Avenue to Vernon Avenue, and the west side of Vernon Avenue from Park Avenue to Hazel Avenue. The scope of the work includes the removal of all brick pavers/border tiles, regrading of the stone sub-base and  resetting the brick pavers/border tiles including the replacement of any that are stained or cracked. The Village will be working with the contractor to limit the impact to businesses and patrons.

Construction Communication Survey

The Village is always looking for ways to improve our communication efforts, and as such, has developed a survey to gauge resident's satisfaction with our outreach during these projects. All response data will be kept anonymous and will be used to inform our future communication plans.
