Annual Road Construction Program

Each year streets are selected for maintenance, based on the Village’s Pavement Management report.  With additional road project revenue provided by the Rebuild Illinois Fund, the Village has the opportunity to tackle two separate road construction projects:

  • Road Program 2021: This is the standard Village-funded road program. After the contractor bid process, the roads listed below are scheduled for resurfacing or reconstruction by the Village of South Elgin during summer 2021. A map is available here. Questions? Call Public Works at 847-695-2742.

General Road Project Information:
Construction and convenience, unfortunately, do not go hand in hand.  Large neighborhood resurfacing projects don't happen overnight and your patience and courtesy is greatly appreciated! Improvements include grinding off the top layer of asphalt and repaving; curb and gutter repairs as necessary; repairs to sidewalks in poor condition or which pose a trip hazard; and new sidewalk installation. Construction work typically occurs between June and September each year.

Please keep in mind during construction season, emergency vehicles will always have access and your garbage service will continue, however your garbage may be picked up earlier in the morning before the contractor begins work.

As always, construction schedules are dependent on weather and are subject to delays.
