Crack filling is a process of using compressed air to remove debris from pavement cracks, then filling and covering them with rubberized material. The purpose of crack filling is to prevent water from washing out pavement aggregates and accessing the road base.
Fog sealing is a process of seal coating an asphalt surface to protect it from the adverse effects of weather and slow the aging process.
Working hours will be workdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Village would appreciate patience if work takes place in your area. Please contact Gabriel Zavala, Engineering Technician with further questions at 815-467-6644.
Work is expected to take place starting the week of June 14-July 23.

Road Reconstruction, Culvert Repairs and Ditch Grading to take place September 21 (on our about) through October 30 on the following roads:
Carrie Ave., Joseph Ave., Andrew Ave., Donna Ave. (McClintock to Andrew), Deal Ave. (McClintock to South end of road), McClintock Road (Jonathan to Patricia), Kent St., Kurt Rd., Bud Ct., Belle Ln., Roberts Rd., Bluff St. (Center to Tryon), Sage St. (Bluff to Buell)
A contract for reconstructing the streets listed above has been awarded to P.T. Ferro. Work will include removal and replacement of asphalt, road grading, asphalt patching, some ditch grading, and culvert replacement at road crossings. Note: not all streets listed will receive ditch grading work.
To help expedite the project and create a safer work zone, the Village respectfully requests your cooperation by not parking vehicles on the roadway during the construction period. Access to your property will be generally maintained, though there may be interruptions during working hours.
Typical working hours are Monday - Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but may extend to 9 p.m. and Saturdays as needed. Work is not allowed on Village observed holidays. The Village would appreciate your patience when work is taking place in your area.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to call Gabe Zavala, Engineering Technician, at (815) 467-6644. Also, if you have a special event planned during construction (party, garage sale, moving, etc.), please call and we will do our best to minimize the inconvenience. Any underground sprinklers, dog fence, etc. must be marked by the homeowner.

Additional Notification of Roberts Road Reconstruction
The Village of Channahon has begun reconstruction of Roberts Road between Rt. 6 and Sunset Dr. This work is expected to be completed by November 6th, but fall weather could move back that completion date. Though Roberts Road will remain open to traffic during that time, sporadic delays are likely. The Village asks that people use Dove Dr. to Sunset Dr. (and vice versa) as an alternative route between Rt. 6 and the school during the construction period. Thank you for your cooperation.
Spray Patch Project May 10 - June 11, 2021
Spraypatching is a process of spraying an asphalt emulsion mixed with stone chips and additional chips added on top. This method is used to spot treat excessive cracking and/or rutted portions of streets to prevent those areas from holding water and/or losing large pieces of surface pavement (potholes). It is a band-aid for severe surface distresses to prevent more severe problems until pavement resurfacing can take place.
Spraypatching is messy when first applied. Excess loose chips will be present and some chips may stick to tires. While initially messy, traffic will flatten and smooth out treated areas. Loose chips will be cleaned up during the Village’s annual street sweeping projects.
Working hours will be workdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Village would appreciate patience if spraypatching work takes place in your area. Please contact Gabriel Zavala, Engineering Technician with further questions at 815-467-6644.
Work is expected to take place starting the week of May 10-June 11, 2011. Click here (link) for the list of roads expected to receive treatment. The extent of roads actually treated will be subject to expiration of contracted materials quantities.
Asphalt Preservation is a process of applying a rejuvenating agent to the asphalt surface. The agent penetrates, covers and protects the asphalt from the negative effects of rain, snow & salt, and sun. Asphalt preservation can add 5-7 years of service life to asphalt pavements.
Working hours will be workdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. No work shall be performed on garbage collection days. The Village would appreciate patience if work takes place in your area. Please contact Gabriel Zavala, Engineering Technician with further questions at 815-467-6644.
Work is expected to take place starting the week of June 14 through mid to late August.
