Harvard Avenue Pavement Widening

Objective
To increase the safety and driveability of the roadway by widening the existing, narrow pavement.

Description

This project consists of the widening of the pavement on North Harvard Avenue from Armitage Avenue to the south dead end.  The existing pavement is located in the west half of the right-of-way and is in the Village of Addison.  This project would provide for the construction of several feet of additional pavement in the east half of the right-of-way in the Village of Villa Park.  Construction would be completed in cooperation with the Village of Addison, and would be coordinated with the resurfacing of their portion of the roadway.

Justification

The width of the existing roadway is less than the minimum recommended by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) standards.  Widening the pavement to the minimum recommended width will increase the safety and driveability of the roadway. This project is to be partially funded by voter approved bond proceeds.
