Sections of 29 Montgomery streets totaling more than 5 miles in length will be resurfaced this spring as a result of action taken by the village board Feb. 26.
In a 5-0 ballot, the board accepted a low bid of $2,585,585 from Builders Paving LLC of Hillside to complete the village’s annual road infrastructure program.
In a second 5-0 ballot, the board also voted to retain its engineering consultants, Engineering Enterprises Inc. of Sugar Grove, to provide construction engineering services, including oversight, for the road infrastructure program at a cost of $262,577.
Peter Wallers, EEI president, reported he was pleased that two contractor bids received by the village both came in approximately 10 percent below his firm’s pre-bid project estimate.
Wallers noted that Builders Paving has worked previously for the village and performed well.
Board member Denny Lee said the firm has also worked in other area communities, including neighboring Aurora and Geneva.
Todd Hoppenstedt, the village’s director of public works, said contractors should begin resurfacing local streets within the next several weeks.
“I would guess that construction may begin as early as April, but most certainly by May,” Hoppenstedt said.
