2021 Road Construction
On March 18th, 2021, the Village Board was presented with the bid proposal for the 2021 Highway Improvement Plan. This bid was awarded to the lowest responsive and qualified bidder. Roadwork this summer will occur on:
- Mayfield Road (from STH 167 to Pleasant Hill)
- Conestoga Court (from Conestoga Trail to Termini)
- Conestoga Trail (from Mayfield Road to Mayfield Road)
- Evergreen Court (from Mayfield Road to Termini)
- Elmwood Road (from Hillside Road to Scenic Road)
- Pioneer Road (from STH 164 to Hillside Road)
- Pioneer Road (from Scenic Road to STH 175)
- St. Augustine Road (from Monches Road north 3,400')
During the week of March 22nd, property owners were notified directly of the upcoming construction and anticipated timelines. Construction is anticipated to start in June and is scheduled to be completed by early August. It is important to note that these timelines are weather dependent and are only a reasonable estimation of the time it will take to construct these roads. As a part of the construction, we work to notify our community partners like the U.S. Post Office, local bus companies, the waste haulers who service our community, and private parcel delivery to mitigate any potential service inconveniences that may arise from construction. While the roads will always be accessible to through traffic, there may be times where motorists will be inconvenienced for the safety of the workers.
To keep everyone informed and abreast of any details regarding this summer construction project, Village Staff hosted two (2) open-forum-style in-person meetings from 5-6 p.m. Thursday, April 1st and Thursday, April 15th, 2021, respectively, at Village Hall.
Our 2021 Highway Improvement Program is the single largest budgeted item in the Village and the Department of Public Works accounts for over 50% of our Village budget. Therefore, Village Board and Staff strive to continue to involve residents, receive input, and keep an open dialogue with property owners; especially when it comes to road construction.
