Over the next eight weeks the City will be contracting road resurfacing work on Dodge Avenue between Oakton and Lee Streets. This project will involve the replacement of existing curb, roadway base repair, replacement of asphalt surface from curb to curb along with selected sidewalk replacement and driveway aprons. Accessible ramps will also be built at the intersections.

The road work is part of the City’s continuous program to improve the roadway system throughout the community. The funding for the project will be from the City’s Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) Fund and GO Bond Fund and there will be no direct charge for the property owners.

Construction will begin the week of June 6th with the entire project expected to be fully completed by the first week of August. The actual date when construction is planned will be noted on the temporary “NO PARKING” signs posted 48 hours prior to the start of work.

Construction zone daytime “NO PARKING” restrictions will be intermittent throughout the duration of the project; evening and night time parking (5 p.m. to 7 a.m.) will always be available.

Street sweeping and/or neighborhood parking restrictions will be waived for a one block radius of the construction zone when temporary daytime “NO PARKING” is in effect. The construction activities will create some inconvenience for the adjoining residents, but workers will attempt to minimize these problems.
