Project Description


Annually, the Village of Northbrook proactively reviews the condition of our asphalt streets, and updates our recommended five-year Asphalt Street Rehabilitation Program. Asphalt streets are selected for rehabilitation based on a computerized pavement management system (IMS), a thorough review of the condition of the pavement surface/base conditions by Public Works staff, pavement condition in relation to the adjacent streets, timing to select and complete the most cost effective rehabilitation measure and coordination with other Village infrastructure projects. This program is funded with proceeds from bond sales and Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) funds distributed to us by the State of Illinois.

Asphalt roadways are assessed on a 5 point rating scale with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. The system is designated as follows:
  • Poor - Road surface and sections of road base are failing
  • Many Failures - Large potholes form. Beginning signs of base failures is evident.
  • Limited Failures - Cracking of pavement along curb line. Small potholes beginning to form.
  • Good - Road surface has small spider cracking at the curb line, no significant or obvious deficiencies in the roadway.
  • Like New - Road surface and base are in good condition. Road has been recently resurfaced or pavement is not exhibiting signs of spider cracking.
During the resurfacing process, the contractor will grind off the road's surface, repair of any deficiencies in the road's base, and install a new road surface. Also included in this program is removal and replacement of defective curb & gutter and utility structure adjustments.

Project Locations & Timeline


The Village’s 2018 asphalt street patching and rehabilitation program will start with asphalt street patching at various locations in the Village, followed by asphalt street rehabilitation (grinding and resurfacing of roads) in mid-May and the second phase of asphalt street rehabilitation in October. Performing this select patching is a cost-effective way to extend the useful life of streets by dealing with localized failures before they compromise more of the roadway.

The streets  to be included in the 2018 Asphalt Street Rehabilitation Program are Hillside Drive, Lakeside Avenue, Oak Avenue, Phillips Avenue, Prince Street, Raintree Lane, Sherman Drive, Snowbird Lane and Sunburst Lane.
