On Monday, September 19, 2022, the Selborne Road and Kent Road Paving Project is scheduled to begin. The scheduled work will involve the full reconstruction of Selborne Road (from York Road to Longcommon Road) and Kent Road (from Selborne Road going east to the dead end alley). Work will also include drainage structure repairs (where necessary), new curbs and gutters (where necessary), new ADA compliant sidewalk ramps and new sidewalks (as necessary). In areas in which new curbs and gutters are being installed, the adjacent area may also be replaced. This includes courtesy walks, driveway aprons and/or sod.
Driveway Access:Access to driveways will be available throughout the duration of the project except for if/when your driveway apron or curb in front of your driveway apron is being replaced. If this applies to you, a notification will be delivered the day before removals are scheduled with additional information. If a concrete curb and/or your driveway apron is replaced, you will not have access to your driveway for approximately 10 days while the work is completed and the concrete cures. Note: if you live on Selborne Road (York Road to Lindberg Road), access to all driveways will be affected as all existing curb & gutter will be removed and replaced. If you live on Selborne Road (Lindberg Road to Longcommon Road), only spot repairs will be made to the curbs, gutters and driveways. Alternate parking will be on Lindberg Road, York Road, and Arlington Road. The Police Department will be aware of this temporary parking and will not issue tickets.
Sprinkler Systems:If you have a sprinkler system in your front parkway, we ask that you clearly mark the location of these sprinklers, so that we can make precautions to avoid unnecessary damage. Please note that per Village code, the property owner is required to provide the Village with an encroachment waiver prior to the installation of any objects in the parkway. This waiver absolves the Village of repair responsibility for damage from projects involving the parkway. The Village also has no repair responsibility for sprinkler systems or other objects installed without provision of the encroachment waiver; therefore, any damage made to parkway sprinklers will be the owner’s responsibility to repair.
Parking:Throughout the duration of the project, on-street parking will be limited and NO PARKING signs will be installed when required. Please adhere to any NO PARKING signs that are posted within the limits of the project as well as permanent parking restrictions. If vehicles are parked where NO PARKING signs have been posted, vehicles will be towed, if necessary.
The anticipated completion date for the project is November 23, 2022
