Public Works performs emergency asphalt and concrete repairs to Village roadways when small or isolated pavement failures occur. The freeze-thaw cycles in northern Illinois can cause potholes, cracking and heaving that if addressed early can prolong the service life of the pavement. Large failures will be referred to the Engineering Division for inclusion in their MFT pavement patching program.
