The City of Naperville informs residents and motorists that resurfacing on Washington Street from 5th Avenue to School Street is expected to begin Tuesday, September 4. The resurfacing work will result in intermittent lane closures that will reduce traffic to one lane in each direction. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route to avoid delays along the stretch of road that is slated for completion in mid-October.
The City will take necessary steps to minimize any inconvenience to area residents, businesses and motorists. The public is encouraged to utilize message boards displaying up-to-date information about the project that will be placed along Washington Street. 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 Washington Street 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.
FYI: 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.
As with any construction project, the City of Naperville would like to remind motorists to stay alert, use caution and abide by all traffic regulations when driving through construction zones. For safe driving tips in construction zones, visit www.naperville.il.us/constructionsafety.aspx.
