Construction Updates

Annual Sidewalk Repair Program

J & J Newell Concrete is performing sidewalk and curb and gutter removal and replacement on approximately 5,900 square feet of sidewalk and 650 lineal feet of curb and gutter throughout the Village.  Construction began the week of August 5, and is expected to last  four weeks.  Please use caution in and around construction zones.

Please contact us at (708) 479-3900 with any questions or concerns you may have about the program.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!


High Density Mineral Bond Program

Due to weather, the High Density Mineral Bond surface treatment was been postponed.  Now, 196th Street between LaGrange Road and 97th Avenue will be closed from 7:00 a.m. Sunday, August 25, until 3:00 a.m. Monday, August 26, as High Density Mineral Bond surface treatment is applied to the street.

During this time, please use 195th Street or 197th Street if you need to access 97th Avenue.

Your Annual Street Maintenance Program

Mokena's annual Street Resurfacing Program is expected to begin soon on nearly 4.11 miles of roadway.  Due to the volume of work involved in this project, construction is anticipated to last 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 for everyone!

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 as we improve our community!
