This is the last of three years of roadway work included in the infrastructure referendum. The first two years the Village took advantage of an unusual construction market, due to the lack of state roadway work, which resulted in a tremendous savings. This work was estimated to cost $5 million, but will cost the Village less than $3.5 million.
The following streets will be improved this year: Ash Street, Bosworth Lane, Drury Lane, Glen Oak Drive, Graemere Street, Harding Road, Ingram Street, Maple Street, North Bristol Street, Oak Street, Old Willow Road, Orchard Lane, Pine Street (East), Southridge Terrace, Thackeray Lane (north of Bosworth), West Linder Alley, and Willow View Terrace.
Water Main Work
The Village is working on a number of water main improvements around town. This includes transitioning to a better-functioning main on Birchwood Lane, water main and storm sewer replacement on Lagoon Drive, and valve repair and replacement at the Reservoir. Storm sewer work on Lagoon Drive is being done to alleviate flooding.
