The Infrastructure Improvement Program is the Village of Sugar Grove’s road rehabilitation program designed to improve and maintain road infrastructure. This ongoing program will result in roads with improved pavement quality and a prolonged lifespan. The program is primarily funded through Motor Fuel Taxes and an infrastructure fee.
The entire Village roadway system is evaluated on an annual basis by qualified staff and the Village Engineer. Based on this objective evaluation the Village Board determines which specific roads will be included each year.
Prior to construction, a letter will be sent out to all residents who live on a road where improvements are scheduled. The letter will provide information on street improvements and an estimated time frame when the work will take place. The construction schedule will also be announced in utility bill handouts, press releases, and the Village Facebook page.
Streets repairs are prioritized based on a detailed engineering analysis of every street and comparing it to the cost of repairing the street at various points throughout its lifespan, then selecting the streets that give the Village the best value. The more value we get each year, the more roads we can do and the sooner we can do them. This can result in streets that aren’t in the worst condition receiving attention first as it is significantly cheaper to address minor issues before they turn into major ones.
The Village continues to pursue other sources of funding for street maintenance. If those other sources become sufficient to provide the level of repair as desired by the community, the fee will be able to be reduced or eliminated.
