Street resurfacing to begin Monday in Homewood

Motorists might want to seek alternate routes in coming weeks while work begins on Homewood's 2018 street resurfacing program.

Work is expected to begin Monday, April 30, according to Village Engineer Max Massi. The project includes repairs to the following streets:
  • Birch Road from Loomis Avenue to Riegel Road.
  • Cedar Road from Harwood Avenue to Ashland Avenue.
  • Vincennes from Pine Road to Dixie Highway.
  • Village hall alley 60 feet west from Dixie Highway.
  • Merchant Park parking lot in the 18300 block of Harwood Avenue.
  • 184th Street from Kedzie Avenue to Kimball.
 
Work will be done concurrently, but the projects will start in the order listed above, Massi said.
 
Work will include pavement patching, curb repairs, drainage structure and installation of Americans with Disabilities Act features. 

The project will cost about $395,000, with $345,000 coming from Motor Fuel Tax funds and $50,000 from the village's 2017 capital expense bond.
