Naper Boulevard Resurfacing to Begin This Week

The roadwork is expected to be complete by mid-August.

Submitted by the city of Naperville. 

The City of Naperville informs residents and motorists that resurfacing on Naper Boulevard from Gartner Road to Chicago Avenue is expected to begin Tuesday, May 27.

The resurfacing work will cause traffic to be reduced to one lane in each direction under the operation of flaggers at intermittent times during the course of the project which is slated for completion in mid-August.

The city will take necessary steps to minimize any inconvenience to area residents, businesses and motorists. The road will remain open at all times; however, motorists are advised to seek an alternate route to avoid delays.

The public is encouraged to utilize message boards displaying up-to-date information about the project that will be placed along Naper Boulevard.

Updates will also be made available on the City’s website at www.naperville.il.us/mip.aspx and on the Interactive Construction Map that can be found at http://gis.naperville.il.us/mashups/construction/.

The City of Naperville has secured $810,000 in Local Agency Functional Overlay (LAFO) funds from the federal government through the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to finance 70 percent of the project. The City will cover the remaining $348,000 needed to complete the work.

The resurfacing project on Naper Boulevard is part of the City’s annual Street Resurfacing Program, which this year includes resurfacing and other improvements to 24 miles of streets in 21 different subdivisions between May and October. For a map of the streets included in the program, visit the City’s website at www.naperville.il.us/mip.aspx.

Funded largely by state and local Motor Fuel Tax funds, Naperville’s Street Resurfacing Program is designed to provide the City with safe roads. Each year City roads are evaluated to determine which roads need preventative maintenance such as patching, microsurfacing and crack-filling or complete replacement of the entire street surface layer by resurfacing or reconstruction.

As with any construction project, the City of Naperville would like to remind motorists to stay alert, use caution and abide by all traffic regulations when driving through construction zones. For safe driving tips in construction zones, visit www.naperville.il.us/constructionsafety.aspx.
