 2014 Street Resurfacing Program 
Updated May 20, 2014

2014 Resurfacing Program

Resurfacing work for the 2014 Street Resurfacing Program began in May and is estimated to be complete in October 2014.

Click here to view the list of streets and subdivisions included in the 2014 program. Affected residents will receive construction notices one week prior to the work. Once work begins in a subdivision, it should be completed in approximately one and a half months. Please be advised that this time frame is tentative pending weather and unforeseen construction complications.

Project Background

Funded by state and local motor fuel tax funds, Naperville's Street Resurfacing Program is designed to provide the City with safe, drivable roadway surfaces. The City's annual Street Maintenance Improvement Program consists of three major categories:

  • Preventive Maintenance
  • Resurfacing
  • Reconstruction

Each year, the City evaluates its roadways and selects cost-effective maintenance treatments to enhance and extend the useful life of the pavement. When a pavement has deteriorated beyond the point of preventative maintenance and resurfacing, the pavement will be replaced.


Construction Process

The goal of this project is to resurface the road and repair failing concrete infrastructure in the public right-of-way. To accomplish this, deteriorated curb through some driveways and storm structures will be removed and replaced before the street is resurfaced.

A City inspector will evaluate the curbs to determine if it negatively affects the street surface. Those identified curbs will be marked with a set of arrows facing each other to indicate the section of the curb that is to be replaced at no cost to the homeowner. Please note that cracks in your curb do not necessarily indicate a need for replacement. Storm sewers will also be evaluated and replaced as part of the process.

City inspectors will also evaluate your sidewalk to see if it qualifies for the city's Sidewalk Replacement Program, which under city ordinance requires the city to assist property owners with the cost of sidewalk replacement. Through this cost-sharing initiative, the City is required to pay for 60 percent of the sidewalk replacement costs, while residents are responsible for the remaining 40 percent.

Deteriorated sidewalk squares in need of repair or replacement will be designated with a white "X" mark. One of the following conditions must exist for a sidewalk to be replaced using the city's Sidewalk Replacement Program:

  •  Sidewalk squares must be sunken or risen to a height difference of one inch or more between sections.
  •  Sidewalk squares must be broken or separated into three or more pieces.
  •  Sidewalk squares must have 50 percent or more of the surface deteriorated.

In the case of asphalt driveway aprons, the City of Naperville will repair the affected driveway aprons (see examples below). However, the city will not repair the driveway aprons with brick, stamped concrete, stones/gravels and other decorative materials. Since there is a higher replacement cost for brick and other decorative driveway aprons, the City Council voted to reimburse the homeowners for a portion of the repair costs. Brick driveways will have only the necessary bricks removed to complete the repairs. The bricks will then be stockpiled on the property. The property owner must then make arrangements to have them reset by a private brick driveway contractor. When driveway access is restricted, the overnight street parking restrictions in the area will be relaxed. During construction the roadway will be open to local traffic only.

Please note that all decorative landscaping, sprinkler systems and buried electronic fence equipment must be located, and clearly marked by the homeowner throughout the construction period. Maintaining the markings and protection of these items is the responsibility of the homeowner. The City of Naperville will not be responsible for damage to unmarked systems.
