Street Improvement Program

Construction for the Village’s 2018 Street Improvement Program (SIP) started on April 9, and will continue through the end of June. The 2018 program budget includes $650,000 to resurface 2 miles of streets throughout the community that have been identified as being in poor or fair condition.

This project consists primarily of the grinding and resurfacing of the deteriorated roadway segments. The construction sequence was as follows:
  1. Intermittent sidewalk, curb and gutter removal and replacement.
  2. Underground utility work (utility frame adjustment, structure reconstruction).
  3. Asphalt surface removal (grinding).
  4.  Asphalt patching of failed base course.
  5. First layer paving with Hot-Mix asphalt leveling binder.
  6. Final layer paving with Hot-Mix asphalt surface Course.
  7. Pavement marking/striping.
During construction, roads will remain open and driveway access will be maintained. The Village will work closely with the contractor to minimize the inconvenience to residents during the project. Residents can expect varying level of activity during the construction time frame. We apologize for the inconvenience created during construction, and thank residents for their patience and cooperation. For questions or further information, please contact Civil Engineer Jorge Jorda at (630) 671-2363 or e-mail

Construction Bulletins

Major Construction Slated for Central Avenue

Construction5Major construction is underway along Central Ave. in Roselle to install a new water main designed to connect water service from the DuPage Water Commission to neighboring Bartlett. The new 30” transmission water main will run from the DuPage Water Commission Tower just northeast of the Roselle Post Office, along Central Ave. to Gary Ave., eventually ending in Bartlett.

Traffic in the immediate work area is reduced to two lanes, and may be reduced to one lane during some portions of construction. Work began on the eastern most section of the project, on Central Ave. near Hill St. and is moving westward toward Gary Ave. as the installation of the water main progresses. The water main is being installed along the east-bound lane of Central Ave.

This project comes after the Bartlett Village Board voted to seek a new source of water for their community, with the DuPage Water Commission chosen as their new supplier. The Village of Roselle has been an active member of the DuPage Water Commission since 1986, and worked closely with DuPage Water Commission representatives in a cooperative effort to expedite the project to connect Bartlett. The Village of Bartlett is financially responsible for the water main project.

Work on the water main installation is expected to be completed in July this year. A project to resurface Central Ave. will follow, with resurfacing work beginning in August, and completion expected in November, weather permitting. The Village was successful in applying for federal funding for the Central Ave. resurfacing project, which was originally slated for 2017. The project was deferred until after the completion of the water main project to connect Bartlett to the DuPage Water Commission.

Federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds will cover approximately 75 percent of the construction costs for the resurfacing project, with the remaining 25 percent coming from the Village of Roselle. Central Ave. is a designated route that qualifies for federal funding because it is classified as a collector street that carries more than just local traffic. In DuPage County, the DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference oversees the STP program.
