Your Annual Street Maintenance Program

The annual Street Resurfacing Program has begun on nearly 2.82 miles of your Mokena streets. Due to the volume of work involved in this project, this work should take roughly 8-10 weeks.

The program contains five typical sequential stages:

  1. Sawcutting of the curbs and sidewalks on your street:  Make the cuts in the curbs and sidewalks where the old concrete will be removed and replaced.
  2. Removal and replacement of the curbs and sidewalks:  The old concrete is removed and new concrete is poured in its place.
  3. Grinding of asphalt:  2" of the old asphalt is taken off the top of the street through a grinding process.
  4. Pavement patching:  Any spots in the street that need extra attention are patched.
  5. A final new layer of asphalt is placed.

Once the first step is started and/or completed on your roadway, it could be a week or longer before the next step gets started.  While you may experience some inconvenience during construction, resurfaced streets are a positive outcome once completed. 

Week of September 21st - Pavement patching will finish up this week, and weather depending, the contractor will begin laying the new layer of asphalt.

Below is a list of the streets that are part of this year's program, as well as a map.  Check back for updates on what work is being done in which areas.  Please contact us at (708) 479-3900 with any questions or concerns you may have about the program.  We appreciate your cooperation in improving our community!
