YORK RD LAFO (Grand Ave to Green St)
The Village of Bensenville is about to undertake a very significant roadway resurfacing project in your area. York Road will be resurfaced from Grand Ave to Green St. As part of the same project, the Village will also perform spot C&G repairs, spot sidewalk repairs, ADA improvements, pedestrian push button signals, pavement patching, structure adjustments, traffic detector loops, parkway restorations, pavement markings, and other miscellaneous items necessary to complete the project.
The total project cost is estimated to be around $2.15 million including design, construction and construction engineering. The Village has received approximately $1.22 million in federal grant monies towards the construction of this project.
The project consists of removing 4.5 inches existing hot-mix asphalt amounting to approximately 51,000 square yards of pavement removal which will be replaced with 6,500 tons of hot-mix asphalt binder plus 5,800 tons of hot-mix asphalt surface course. As part of the project, approximately 3,900 feet of C&G will be repaired as well 5,900 square feet of sidewalk... READ FULL INFORMATION LETTER.
During the week of June 3, the contractor lost a couple of days of work to rain and wet pavement but managed to finish the binder layer installation as well as the level binder between Pine Ave and Green St. The sub-contractor for AT&T also begin to perform structure adjustments south of Jefferson St. With the completion of the binder layer all driveways should be accessible with a small lip at the edge of pavement. Weather permitting, the week of June 10th, the contractor will continue with the structure adjustments and possibly begin the traffic detector loop installation towards latter half of the week. During these operations the traffic will be heavily impacted and will cause long delays. Please utilize alternate route options if possible.
During the week of May 28, the contractor finished milling all of the existing surface. Due to wet weather, the contractor was only able to perform limited patching this week. They also performed crack filling and paving the binder layer from Jacquelyn Dr to approximately Red Oak Ave. Weather permitting, the week of June 3rd, the contractor will continue paving the binder all the way up to Green St. It is also possible they will begin structure adjustments during the latter half of the week. During these operations the traffic will be heavily impacted and will cause long delays. Please utilize alternate route options if possible.
UPDATE: Weather permitting, on May 22, the contractor for the York Rd construction project plans to begin milling the roadway starting North of Belmont. The plan is to mill down the existing surface 4.5 inches. The contractor is anticipating the entire milling operation within the project limits will take about 4 days of work. Below are their projected stopping point for each day of operation. They will mill down all 4.5-inches of pavement across the entire width of York Rd each day, barring any weather and equipment delays. During this operation, there will be massive traffic delays as traffic pattern will continuously change throughout the day. We ask that you avoid the construction zone if at all possible between the hours of 7 AM and 4 PM. The contractor plans to build temporary ramps behind the milling operations for driveway access. If you have a driveway off of York Rd, please be patient. Your driveway access will be established before the end of each day. The contractor will also maintain access to the side streets as well as provide transition ramps at the stopping limits at the end of each day.
Due to the weather today, the contractor did not mill York Road. Below is their updated schedule for milling. Their tentative schedule is now as follows:
- 5/22 - STA 36+00 - 54+00 (N. of Belmont to S. of George)
- 5/23 - STA 54+00 - 72+00 (S. of George to S. of Jefferson)
- 5/24 - STA 72+00 - 89+00 (S. of Jefferson to N. of Memorial)
- 5/28 - STA 89+00 - 106+00 (N. of Memorial to Job Limit)
They are also hoping to pave on Thursday and potentially Friday (5/23 & 5/24) depending on crew availability and weather.
On and off rain affected this week’s progress but the contractor was able to finish all concrete work as well as HMA driveway patching. The landscape subcontractor was also onsite to begin the restoration work along the sidewalk and behind the curb. Weather permitting, during the week of May 13, the contractor will finish the landscaping work. Due to the persistent rain over the last couple of week, the contract has been delayed on other jobs which will likely push back the milling operations to the week of May 20. It appears that there will be slow progress during the week of May 13. All work will be performed under daily lane closures. Please avoid the construction area if possible or seek alternate route.
Much of the week was lost due to rain. Weather permitting, during the week of May 6, the concrete contractor plans to complete their work. The contractor will also be performing structure adjustments in the pavement by dropping them below the proposed milling depth to prep for the mill operation scheduled to begin in mid-May. Other miscellaneous work such electrical, landscaping and driveway patching installation will also continue during the week. All work will be performed under daily lane closures. Please avoid the construction area if possible or seek alternate route.
