To improve the condition of the roadway by means of selected pavement rehabilitation methods. To improve the water system capacity and reliability by replacing the existing undersized water main.


This project consists of improvements on North Harvard Avenue from Jefferson Park to Ridge Road. The project includes the replacement of the existing 4" water main from Jefferson Park to Sunset Drive. The water main improvements are expected to be funded through an IEPA Water Loan. The Village has also submitted an application for CDBG Grant Funding which, if awarded, could help to defray the cost of the water main improvements. Some selective sanitary sewer system improvements are also included.


The Village’s Pavement Management Program has determined that the condition of the street has deteriorated to the point that pavement rehabilitation is needed. The pavement improvements are to be partially funded by voter approved bond proceeds. The existing 4" water main has insufficient capacity and a high incidence of water main breaks. The Illinois EPA Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP) is expected to provide loan funding for the water main improvements.
