Capital Improvement Program - 2023
This program is funded in part by Motor Fuel Taxes received by the Village from the State of Illinois. These funds are distributed on a per capita basis. The Streets identified for 2023 follow the guidance of the Pavement Management Plan. Pavement rehabilitation will consist of a combination of full and partial depth pavement removal & replacement. In situations where the pavement condition reveals areas of localized distress, edge grind & overlay can be a cost-effective means for repairing the deficiency. Edge grind & overlay includes grinding up to 2 inches depth at the edge of the roadway and planning to 0 at the centerline followed by asphalt resurfacing the roadway section with the goal of restoring the pavement and prolonging the useful life of the entire roadway section. Project also includes full depth asphalt patching as needed, spot sidewalk, curb and gutter repair as well as remove and replace sidewalk aprons with detectable warning panels to meet current ADA standards. Roadway sections are as follows:
|Street Name||Limits||Length (ft)|
|Sun City NH 1||All Roadways||1,745|
|Sun City NH 2||All Roadways||3,844|
|Sun City NH 3||All Roadways||6,980|
|Sun City NH 7||All Roadways||5,667|
|Sun City NH 9||All Roadways||4,192|
|Cold Springs Drive||Del Webb Blvd to Del Webb Blvd||7,775|
|Farm Hill Drive||Del Webb Blvd to Regency Parkway||4,700|
|Hemmer Road||Del Webb Blvd to Village Limits||1,689|
|Stonewater Crossing||Del Webb Blvd to Wildrose Drive||5,323|
|Wildrose Drive||Del Webb Blvd to Stonewater Crossing||2,584|
|Jim Dhamer Drive||IL Route 47 to 780 feet west of George Bush Court||4,079|
|Manning Road||Big Timber Road to approx. 1,400 feet north||1,403|
|Total Length:||49,981 ft|
The project also includes pedestrian safety modifications at the north intersection of Cold Springs Drive and Del Webb Blvd. Improvements will include a refuge island and Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFB).
Sidewalk Cutting Program Project Updates
The Sidewalk Cutting Program is continuing to evolve in order to manage and address the vertical surface discontinuities throughout the Village and provide safe pedestrian pathways for our community. The program consists of a more targeted approach and addresses all vertical displacements in our annual Street Improvement Programs, which includes MFT and Edge Mill Overlay. Sidewalk service requests meeting certain criteria will also be included in this program.
2023 Pavement Management Program – Crack Sealing Project Updates
The program would consist of crack sealing at various locations throughout the Village.
Crack Seal: When applied to low stress pavements, crack sealing is a cost-effective measure to extend pavement life by precluding water from entering the pavement subsurface thereby retarding the propagation of more cracks and preserving the pavement condition.
2023 Pavement Management Program – Pavement Marking Project Updates
Pavement markings are used to convey messages to roadway users. They indicate which part of the road to use, provide information about conditions ahead, and indicate where passing is allowed. Pavement symbols are used to indicate permitted lane usages. The pavement marking program would consist of restoring a combination of thermoplastic and paint markings at various locations throughout the Village. Thermoplastic marking has a life of approximately 5 years before it needs to be restored whereas most paint marking needs to be restored annually. With the vast roadway network throughout the Village requiring marking, a combination of contract and in-house operations are necessary to keep the markings fresh.
2023 Bridge Inspection Program
Bridges meeting a certain size criteria are required to be inspected biannually (Kreutzer Road east bridge is annually) in accordance with the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) and the IDOT Structure Information and Procedure Manual. Nine (9) bridges in Village jurisdiction meet these criteria, two (2) of which are scheduled for inspection in FY23.
LED Street Light Replacement Program Project Updates
The 2023 LED Lighting Incentive Program will be administered by ComEd and will consist of converting high pressure sodium municipal street lights to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures with the goal of reduced consumption and energy savings.
Sewer Televising, Jetting and Lining Project Updates
Sewer televising, jetting and lining is an essential component to sewer asset management and to the IEPA mandated Capacity, Management, Operation, and Maintenance (CMOM) program. The sewer lining and rehabilitation program allows the Village to cost effectively repair sewers with minimal restoration and disruption to traffic by using a trenchless cured in place pipe lining process. The 2023 program will consist of televising and jetting the sewers identified in the target area. Refer to Project Updates link above for more information.
Water Well No. 13 and Water Treatment Plant Project Updates
The Village operates and maintains a public water system that includes five deep wells that pump groundwater to five water treatment plants that distribute water to approximately 190 miles of water main and a combined 3.318 million gallons of elevated and ground water storage within one pressure zone. On June 10, 2021, the Village pumped 4.92 million gallons of water equating to 2.24 times more than the average daily demand of 2.2 MGD. This demand required all five wells to operate for over 19 hours across a 24-hour period. Typically, well pumping equipment should not operate more than 16 hours in a 24-hour period to avoid over-stressing the equipment. Based on unpredictable future dry weather patterns and corresponding outdoor water use trends as well as current and forecasted development in the Village, increased water demands on the existing water system are expected. A new deep well and water treatment plant would increase production capacity to approximately 6.2 MGD.
South Church Street Streetscape Improvements Project Updates
Streetscape improvements on South Church Street between Main and Mill Street and on Mill Street between the UPRR and Church Street would include: replacement of curb and gutter, sidewalk, and driveway aprons, storm sewer and water main improvements, roadway resurfacing, decorative streetlights, parkway restoration with trees and landscaping, and dry utility burial on the west side of Church Street.
Ecological Assessment and Restoration / Wing Pointe and Southwind Subdivisions
This project follows the recommendations of the Long Term Maintenance and Monitoring Plan to restore the preserved wetland in the Wing Pointe and Southwind subdivisions. The recovery of the wetland will be completed by removing individual specimens of invasive native species, permitting and implementation of controlled burns in natural areas as needed to clear debris, recycle nutrients and stimulate native plant and animal species. Invasive woody & herbaceous flora will be controlled through cultural methods, physical removal or the application of appropriate herbicides and mowing. Mowing of restored areas will also allow light to the ground for new seedlings. Supplemental native seed and/or plugs will be planted to increase native plant competition & biodiversity.
