Annually, the Village of Northbrook proactively reviews the condition of our asphalt streets, and updates our recommended five-year Asphalt Street Rehabilitation Program. Asphalt streets are selected for rehabilitation based on a computerized pavement management system (IMS), a thorough review of the condition of the pavement surface/base conditions by Public Works staff, pavement condition in relation to the adjacent streets, timing to select and complete the most cost effective rehabilitation measure and coordination with other Village infrastructure projects. This program is funded with proceeds from bond sales and Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) funds distributed to us by the State of Illinois.
Asphalt roadways are assessed on a 5 point rating scale with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. The system is designated as follows:
- Poor - Road surface and sections of road base are failing
- Many Failures - Large potholes form. Beginning signs of base failures is evident.
- Limited Failures - Cracking of pavement along curb line. Small potholes beginning to form.
- Good - Road surface has small spider cracking at the curb line, no significant or obvious deficiencies in the roadway.
- Like New - Road surface and base are in good condition. Road has been recently resurfaced or pavement is not exhibiting signs of spider cracking.
Project Locations & Timeline
The Village’s 2020 asphalt street patching and rehabilitation program will start with asphalt street patching at various locations in the Village, followed by asphalt street rehabilitation (grinding and resurfacing of roads) in mid-May and paving during the summer. Performing this select patching is a cost-effective way to extend the useful life of streets by dealing with localized failures before they compromise more of the roadway.
