Districtwide - Asphalt Maintenance
The project will provide for a one-year professional services contract for asphalt maintenance.
The project was completed.
As forest preserve infrastructure continues to develop (a 21% increase in hardscaped surface maintenance and 1 square mile of new asphalt surface since 2000, for example) more areas require scheduled maintenance to meet Forest Preserve District standards. This increase, however, has shifted crew responsibilities from planned maintenance schedules to day-to-day scheduling to address urgent issues in these areas as they arise. Already, the established four-year cycle of patching, seal coating, filling and striping has been extended to a five-year cycle. The project will allow the Forest Preserve District to ensure pending asphalt maintenance is completed so its high standards can continue to be met.
