Street Improvement Program


2016 Street Improvement Program

July 21, 2016 - Construction for the Village’s annual Street Improvement Program (SIP) is currently underway throughout Roselle. Nearly $1.6 million is being spent on street improvements this year to resurface streets throughout the community that have been identified as being in poor or fair condition. The project is expected to be completed by August 15, weather permitting.

The SIP is expanded this year to improve more streets, following several years of street programs that were reduced in scope. The Village’s 2016 budget included an initiative to issue $2.4 million in limited tax bonds to fund the SIP for 2016 and 2017.

The Village acknowledges that the concrete and underground portions of the project this year took much longer than anticipated due to the expanded workload. We apologize for any inconveniences that were created during construction, and thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while Village staff works with the contractor to ensure the timely completion of the balance of this year’s project.

The construction includes resurfacing the asphalt roadways and intermittent curb sidewalk replacement. 2016 SIP Timeline:
  • All concrete and underground utility work has been completed, including curb/gutter and sidewalk replacement, and adjustments to storm inlet frames.
  • Pavement grinding July 18 and is scheduled to be completed by early August.                
  • Paving operations started July 21 and are scheduled to be completed by mid-August. With the asphalt grinding, pavement patching, and base coat applications, “Fresh Oil” signs will be posted. The final surface layer of asphalt will follow.
  • Impacts to traffic will be minimal and the driving surface will be passable during all phases of the grinding and paving work. Some work may require the temporary closing of streets when crews are present.
  • Following the completion of the paving phase, landscape restoration of Village parkways will occur.

Federal Funding Secured for Maple Ave. & Central Ave. Resurfacing Projects

Construction is scheduled to begin on September 19, 2016, for the Maple Ave. resurfacing project, which includes the resurfacing and intermittent curb and gutter work along the stretch between Roselle Rd. and Irving Park Rd. Additionally, Central Ave. from Rodenburg Rd. to Roselle Rd. is scheduled to be resurfaced in 2017. The Village was successful in seeking federal funding for both the Maple Ave. and Central Ave. resurfacing projects. Federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds will cover approximately 75 percent of the construction costs, with the remaining 25 percent coming from the Village of Roselle.

Rodenburg Rd. Railroad Crossing Quiet Zone Project

Safety improvements at the Rodenburg Rd. railroad crossing were made in June 2016 in order to establish a quiet zone at the crossing. As part of the establishment of the quiet zone, traffic channelization devices (vertical tubes that prevent vehicles from driving around lowered gates) were installed along the middle of Rodenburg Rd. on both the north and south sides of the crossing.

It is expected the quiet zone will take effect late this summer or in early fall. Horns within the quiet zone may still be used in the case of an emergency and to comply with federal or other railroad regulations.

Train horn quiet zone studies were conducted on the railroad crossings in Roselle at Rodenburg Rd., Roselle Rd., Prospect St., and Park St. in 2014. The Village Board agreed to pursue a quiet zone at the Rodenburg Rd. crossing last year, based largely on potential costs and necessary restrictions. Further evaluations will continue at the remaining crossings. More information about the establishment of quiet zones can be found on the Train Horn Regulations page on our website.
