St. Charles plans to improve 3.9 miles of streets in the coming months as part of this year’s street rehabilitation program.
Work is expected to start in early May. All pavement work is expected to be completed by mid-August and boardwalk restoration will take place in September.
Aldermen on the Government Services Committee of St. Charles City Council on Monday recommended approval of a $2.7 million construction contract with Geneva Construction Company, subject to funding approval in the city’s budget. the 2022-2023 fiscal year. The recommendation will now go to the full City Council for approval.
“We’ve seen an increase of about 10% in asphalt and concrete prices, which was pretty to be expected this year,” St. Charles Director of Public Works Ken Jay told the aldermen.
