To improve the condition of East Plymouth Street through resurfacing of the roadway with hot-mix asphalt (HMA).


This project consists of improving Plymouth Street from Ardmore Avenue to Villa Avenue in the Village of Villa Park which includes hot-mix asphalt (HMA) resurfacing and HMA pavement reconstruction.  The total length of improvements is 2,594 feet (0.49 mile).  The pavement resurfacing areas will consist of 2” of HMA surface course and ¾” of polymerized leveling binder.  These resurfacing areas will also have pavement patching and spot curb and gutter replacement based on field conditions.  The pavement reconstruction areas will be composed of 2” HMA surface course, 4” HMA binder course and 6” aggregate base course supported on a geotechnical fabric.   In addition, there will be sidewalk replacement at intersections to meet the Public Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG), driveway reconstruction, drainage and utility improvements, pavement markings, signing, erosion & sediment control, and landscaping.  This project is being funded by a State grant administered by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) which requires participation goals for Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women Business Enterprise (WBE), and Veterans Business Enterprise (VBE) as outlined in the Contract Documents.


The roadway has deteriorated to the point where resurfacing is needed.
