Highland Ave Improvement Update

The Village has been undertaking discussions with the City of Elgin regarding the potential to pave or improve Highland Avenue between Reinking and Damisch Roads. Initial discussions focused on the possibility of constructing a temporary improvement, with several inches of pavement installed on the existing gravel base. Such an improvement would have involved roughly $60,000 of Village funding and also involved significant expense for the City of Elgin, along with the dedication of significant Elgin Public Works staffing and equipment to complete the paving. Upon further review of the existing road conditions, it was determined that the road base and existing drainage are simply not adequate to allow the road to be paved, even as a temporary measure. Installing asphalt on the existing roadway would be an improvement that could fail in as little as one winter/spring season. The City of Elgin has committed to continuing to grade and maintain the existing road surface, and the Village will continue to explore ways of addressing this concern. The portion of roadway in question is under the jurisdiction of the City of Elgin, and Elgin has the final say in determining whether it is improved at this time or not.
