2019 MFT Street Improvement Program
This program is funded by Motor Fuel Taxes received by the Village from the State of Illinois. These funds are distributed on a per capita basis. The Streets identified for 2019 follow the recommendations of the Street Maintenance Improvement Report to restore the pavements with the highest (worst) Pavement Condition Index. Pavement rehabilitation will consist of a combination of full depth pavement removal & replacement or edge grind & overlay which includes removing 1-½ inches of the existing asphalt and resurfacing the roadway with 1-½ inches of new hot mix asphalt surface course. Project also includes full depth Class D HMA patching as needed, spot sidewalk, curb and gutter repair as well as remove and replace sidewalk aprons with detectable warning panels to meet current ADA standards. Roadway sections include all roadways in the Georgian Place Subdivision.
2019 Pavement Management Program – Crack Sealing, Seal Coating and Edge Grind & Overlay
The 2019 program would consist of crack sealing, seal coating and edge grind & overlay at various locations throughout the Village.
Crack Seal and Seal Coat: When applied to low stress pavements, crack sealing and seal coating is a cost-effective measure to extend pavement life by precluding water from entering the pavement subsurface thereby retarding the propagation of more cracks and preserving the pavement condition. Seal coating consists of repair and patching of potholes, clean and seal large sunken cracks, power cleaning of pavement, two (2) coats of Liquid Road, and silica sand added for improved wear and skid resistance.
Edge Grind & Overlay: In situations where the pavement condition reveals areas of localized distress, edge grind & overlay can be a cost-effective means for repairing the deficiency. Edge grind & overlay includes grinding up to 2 inches depth at the edge of the roadway and planing to 0 at the centerline followed by asphalt resurfacing the roadway section with the goal of restoring the pavement and prolonging the useful life of the entire roadway section.
2019 Pavement Management Program – Pavement Marking
Pavement markings are used to convey messages to roadway users. They indicate which part of the road to use, provide information about conditions ahead, and indicate where passing is allowed. Pavement symbols are used to indicate permitted lane usages. The pavement marking program would consist of restoring a combination of thermoplastic and paint markings at various locations throughout the Village. Thermoplastic marking has a life of approximately 5 years before it needs to be restored whereas most paint marking needs to be restored annually. With the vast roadway network throughout the Village requiring marking, a combination of contract and in-house operations are necessary to keep the markings fresh. The Village does not have the machinery necessary for applying thermoplastic marking. Therefore, the contract work will focus on areas requiring thermoplastic marking while Village staff will restore the paint markings.
2019 Bridge Inspection Program
Bridges meeting a certain size criteria are required to be inspected biannually (Kreutzer Road east bridge is annually) in accordance with the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) and the IDOT Structure Information and Procedure Manual. Ten (10) bridges in Huntley meet these criteria, two (2) of which are scheduled for inspection in FY19.
LED Street Light Program
The 2019 LED Lighting Incentive Program will be administered by ComEd and will consist of converting high pressure sodium municipal street lights to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures with the goal of reduced consumption and energy savings.
Sewer Televising and Lining
Sewer lining is an essential component to sewer asset management and to the IEPA mandated Capacity, Management, Operation, and Maintenance (CMOM) program. The sewer lining and rehabilitation program allows the Village to cost effectively repair sewers with minimal restoration and disruption to traffic by using a trenchless cured in place pipe lining process. The 2019 program will consist of televising, jetting and lining all the sanitary sewers and manholes identified in the target area including the 10” and 12” sewers on Myrtle Street and near Donald Drive.
Water Main Replacement Program
In the past several years, there have been numerous water main breaks in the Bernat Industrial Park as a result of deteriorating and aging pipe. These main breaks consume staff resources, result in water loss, are costly to repair and are likely to continue unless the pipe is replaced with new pipe meeting current material and construction standards. The Bernat Industrial Park water main replacement initiated in 2016 and will be completed with this project which includes replacement of approximately 850 feet of 10" water main pipe along with two (2) augered steel casing railroad crossings.
Ecological Assessment and Restoration / Wing Pointe and Southwind Subdivisions
This project follows the recommendations of the Long Term Maintenance and Monitoring Plan to restore the preserved wetland in the Wing Pointe and Southwind subdivisions. The recovery of the wetland will be completed by removing individual specimens of invasive native species, permitting and implementation of controlled burns in natural areas as needed to clear debris, recycle nutrients and stimulate native plant and animal species. Invasive woody & herbaceous flora will be controlled through cultural methods, physical removal or the application of appropriate herbicides and mowing. Mowing of restored areas will also allow light to the ground for new seedlings. Supplemental native seed and/or plugs will be planted to increase native plant competition & biodiversity.
Geographic Information System (GIS) and Asset Management Program
Updates include utility data additions and various tools for tracking and utilizing information added to the system. An asset management solution called VUEWorks will be implemented with six (6) modules consisting of Service Requests, Work Orders, Resource Manager, Condition, Request Portal and MobileVue. The Service Request Module will track calls, complaints and requests from citizens.
