Schroeder Asphalt resurfaced the Metra Parking Lot between Washington and Lehigh (see pictures below) on Saturday August 29th, thereby minimizing the inconvenience to commuters.

The Resurfacing Program is nearing completion! Landscapers will return to finish grading and install the sod in the next few weeks. The second phase of the Minor Area Resurfacing Strategy (MARS) Program will likely start on September 10th (weather permitting) at various locations throughout the Village and will be completed within 5 working days.

Phase 2 of the Minor Area Repair Strategy (MARS) Program is scheduled to begin next week. This includes the milling and paving of the worst areas on some streets throughout the Village. The placement of sod along the streets already paved will be done in September to avoid hot summer weather.

Work is almost completed for the 2009 MFT Resurfacing Program! The paving on the resurfaced streets is completed and only sodding remains to be finished. There will be more Minor Area Repair Strategy (MARS) patching done in August. The program is designed to patch the worst pavement areas on selected streets and provide an improved ride surface until the next planned full roadway resurfacing/reconstruction project.

Construction is continuing on schedule. Landscaping started this week. This includes areas around new concrete and any areas disturbed by construction. The paving of the surface lift (top layer) of asphalt will be scheduled shortly. Prior to surfacing, the streets will be swept and a tack coat of oil will be applied. This tack drys within an hour; however, we advise drivers to avoid vehicle use on the tack coat as it dries.
