Objective

To significantly improve the condition of the roadway by removing the existing deteriorated pavement and replacing it with a new structurally sound pavement. To improve water system capacity and reliability by replacing the existing water main.

Description

This project consists of the reconstruction of North Charles Avenue from St. Charles Road to Oak Street. The project includes combined sewer separation. The project also includes replacement of the existing 4'' water main. Some selective 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. The existing 4'' water main has insufficient capacity. The Illinois EPA Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP) is expected to provide loan funding for the water main improvements.
