As the adage notes, mostly tongue-in-cheek, there are just two seasons in this part of the world: winter, and road construction season. Winter may be loath to loose its grip on the region this year, but that doesn’t mean authorities will be unprepared when the other season finally gets here.
Naperville City Council members Tuesday night approved four contracts for this year’s street maintenance work, approving $5,014,753 for resurfacing, fiberized crack filling, patching and microsurfacing, which involves a thin layer of asphalt laid over existing surfaces.
The resurfacing contract is one of three planned this year and will use the city’s share of gasoline tax revenue, nearly $3.5 million.
The remaining two resurfacing contracts — including one for the full length of Rickert Drive from Ogden Avenue to 75th Street — could ultimately represent more than half of the city’s expense for road work planned this year. That pair of contracts, for which the city has budgeted $5,868,300 this year, will be let in May, according to Allison Allbrecht, spokeswoman for the city’s Transportation, Engineering & Development Business Group.
