Neighbors in the Heights subdivision probably won’t mind the construction on their street since it is long overdue.
Arrow Road Construction is scheduled to start resurfacing the existing pavement and replacing the existing curb, gutter, and sidewalk as needed next week.
The work should be completed by November.
Lake Zurich officials remind residents that cars parked on the street during this time may be towed at the owner's expense. There is to be no parking at any time during the period of construction, even if there appears to be no construction taking place on the street.
The village wants homeowners to keep in mind how the various phases of construction will affect the neighborhood and ask the following steps are completed before parking vehicles in the street:
Pavement Milling: The existing roadway will be milled to a depth specified by the contract. This will in effect lower the road temporarily. Access to your driveway will be granted at all times, but we ask you to please limit the number of times you access your driveway.
Tack Coat Placement: A layer of tack coat will be placed immediately prior to the placement of the new asphalt. This tack coat can be very difficult to remove if it happens to get splashed onto your vehicle. Avoid driving on the tack coat when at all possible.
Roadway Paving: Once the tack coat has been placed, fresh asphalt will be poured on your roadway. The final project can be adversely affected based on traffic volume on your road during placement. We ask again that you limit the amount of travel required during the placement of asphalt.
Pavement Sealing: Once the final asphalt coat has been placed, contractors will seal pavement joints, structures, and curbs with hot-asphalt liquid sealant. This ensures the life of the pavement at these areas. This is a fast-drying process, but does require that there are no vehicles parked on the street during this operation.
