Objective


To significantly improve the condition of the roadway by removing the existing deteriorated pavement and replacing it with a new structurally sound pavement.  A portion of the project includes storm sewer that will reduce the frequency of surcharging of the combined sewer system.

Description


This project consists of the reconstruction of Astor Court from Summit Avenue to Myrtle Avenue and Myrtle Avenue from Park to Highland, and includes storm sewer construction.  Some selective water system and sanitary sewer system improvements are also included.

Justification


The Village's pavement management program has determined that the condition of the street has deteriorated to the point that pavement rehabilitation is needed. This project is to be partially funded by voter approved bond proceeds.
