To improve the condition of the roadway by removing the existing pavement and replacing it with a new, structurally sound pavement. To reduce the frequency and severity of flooding and sewer backups by separating the existing combined sewer.


This project consists of pavement improvements and combined sewer separation on South Monterey Avenue from Washington Street to Park Boulevard and on Highland Avenue from Monterey Avenue to Riverside Drive. Some selective water and sanitary system improvements are also included. Future sewer separation is proposed as a part of the Washington Area Combined Sewer Separation Project.


The Village’s Pavement Management Program has determined that the condition of the street has deteriorated to the point that pavement rehabilitation is needed. The pavement improvements are to be partially funded by voter approved bond proceeds. The sewer separation was recommended by the 2015 Comprehensive Flood Plan and Storm Sewer Analysis prepared by Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd.
