Construction will result in one lane of traffic; expect delays
NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Grinding on Book Road from 87th Street to 111th Street is anticipated to begin Mon., June 18, as part of the Book Road resurfacing project. This grinding work and paving that will follow will cause traffic to be reduced to one lane on the three-mile stretch of road for approximately the next month.
Motorists should expect long delays as traffic will be reduced to one lane under the operation of flaggers all day on a daily basis as construction continues. Once grinding is completed, the road will be repaved. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-August, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. Until then, motorists are advised to seek alternate north-south arterial routes to avoid the delays that are anticipated.
The public is encouraged to utilize message boards displaying up-to-date information about the project that will be placed along Book Road. In addition, information will be available through the “Construction Alerts” section on the homepage of the City’s website as well as www.naperville.il.us/mip.aspx.
The resurfacing project on Book Road is part of the City’s annual Roadway Resurfacing Program, which includes resurfacing and reconstruction of roads in several subdivisions and a few of the City’s major roadways. This year’s program includes work in the following subdivisions: Breckenridge, Brookdale, Brush Hill, Cress Creek, In-Town East, In-Town West, Knoch Knolls, Old Farm, Old Saw Mill, Rose Hill, White Eagle and Wildflower. For a map of the roadways included in the program, visit the City’s website at www.naperville.il.us/mip.aspx.
All of the work included in the 2012 Roadway Resurfacing Program is slated for completion by late October.
Funded largely by state and local Motor Fuel Tax funds, Naperville’s Roadway Resurfacing Program is designed to provide the City with safe roads. Each year City roads are evaluated to determine which roads need preventative maintenance such as patching, microsurfacing and crack-filling or complete replacement of the entire street surface layer by resurfacing or reconstruction.
