Trotter and Associates, Inc. prepared preliminary design, final design and contract documents for the resurfacing and rehabilitation of 2.83 miles of streets.  The contract documents included a base bid and 5 alternates in order to obtain “economy of scale”.  The streets include segments of Allen Drive; Bode Road; Bruce Drive; Campus Drive, Channing Street, Chester Court; Fletcher Drive; North Lyle; Springfield Court; Valley Creek Drive; Waverly and Weld Roads.

The resurfacing work consists of HMA surface removal, pavement patching, installing strip reflective crack control fabric, removing/replacing sidewalk ramps to meet ADA requirements; curb removal/replacement; installing HMA binder and surface courses; pavement markings and restoration work.  TAI coordinated with IDOT and Kane County DOT for maintenance of traffic signals.

Campus Drive and Weld Road were rehabilitated utilizing full depth reclamation (FDR) with cement to stabilize the roadway base.  Once stabilized, the base was resurfaced with HMA binder and surface courses.   This rehabilitation alternative was more economical than completely removing and replacing the existing roadway.  Construction was $2 million. TAI also provided construction engineering services on the project.
