Nearly two miles of Glen Ellyn roads will undergo about $5 million worth of rehabilitation work this summer to fix deteriorating pavement and improve underground drainage systems.

The roadway improvements on the north side of the village are scheduled to begin this month and be complete by Nov. 1.

They include an asphalt resurfacing on Oak Street between Western Avenue and Main Street; full-depth asphalt reconstruction on Euclid Avenue between Oak and Hawthorne Boulevard and on Forest Avenue between Oak and Maple streets; and concrete construction in a north-south alley between Oak and Elm streets east of Western.

That work will cover a total of 1.1 miles of road and cost $2.79 million. The contractor hired last month by the village board is Swallow Construction of Downers Grove.

A separate $2.17 million project approved by the board this week includes a simple resurfacing of Country Club Lane; enhanced resurfacing of Miller Court; and full-depth asphalt reconstruction of Cranston Court, Grandview Avenue between Smith Street and Hill Avenue, and Brandon between Hill and Hillside avenues.

That work will cover a total of 4,000 feet of road. The contractor, R.W. Dunteman Company of Addison, was hired to make road improvements to Hawthorne last year and streets in the neighborhood near Sunset and Turner avenues the year before.

The street projects include water main lining and replacements, sanitary sewer upgrades, storm sewer extensions, water service upgrades and sidewalk replacements, village officials said.

An early completion date of Aug. 16 has been set for two blocks of Oak Street near Forest Glen Elementary School in order to avoid disruption during the school year.

Work on Cranston Court is scheduled to take place after Labor Day due to its proximity to Sunset Park and Pool.
