If you’ve ever ridden your bike through Lime Kiln Park, or driven a vehicle through the intersection of Main Street and Pilgrim Road, you know what it’s like to give your shocks a workout.
However, those two popular routes for residents on the move will get a lot smoother. The village plans to repave both the path and the busy intersection of Pilgrim Road and Main Street this year.
The village board recently granted a $1.37 million asphalt paving contract to Payne and Dolan, Inc. The contract includes a $59,000 project to repave the Main Street and Pilgrim Road intersection. Repaving Lime Kiln Park will also cost roughly $42,000.
The contract also includes $875,000 for pavement construction throughout various locations of the village. Here’s a look other notable locations in the village that will be getting street upgrades:
- Shorecrest Drive, $196,000
- Martin Drive/St. Thomas Drive, $72,000
- Bryn Mawr Court, $24,000
- Old Falls Village Parking Lot, $56,000
- Terrace Drive, $15,000
- MacArthur (5-foot-wide asphalt path), $14,000
- Epoxy Pavement Marking (Various locations), $20,000
The 2012 paving projects were included in the 2012 Capital Budget and the Public Works operating budget. The Village Board approved a declaration of intent to reimburse Payne and Dolan, since the village has not borrowed the funds for the projects yet.
