Central Avenue Resurfacing Project Underway

Construction5The installation of the water main along Central Ave. to connect neighboring Bartlett to the DuPage Water Commission tower is complete, and patching and restoration work was completed in mid-July. Additional work for the resurfacing of Central Ave. from Roselle Rd. to Gary Ave. began on August 20, 2018, with the project expected to conclude the week of November 12, 2018.

Following the pavement grinding and an application of prime coat (oily tar-like material), the first layer of pavement was installed with temporary road markings in mid-September. A second and final layer is scheduled to be paved in early November, weather permitting. A prime coat (oily tar-like material) will be applied to the street prior to the paving of the final layer to help bond the new asphalt. If you must drive on it, please drive very slowly.  Please see the Construction Bulletin from Roselle Public Works for more information. We apologize for the inconvenience created during construction and thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds will cover approximately 75 percent of the construction costs for the resurfacing project, with the remaining 25 percent coming from the Village of Roselle. Central Ave. is a designated route that qualifies for federal funding because it is classified as a collector street that carries more than just local traffic. In DuPage County, the DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference oversees the STP program.
