Crack Sealing to Begin April 27th

City of Genoa – Street Crack-fill Information

 

Each year, the City evaluates its street and selects cost-effective maintenance treatments to enhance and extend the useful life of the pavement. When pavement is in relatively better condition, crack-fill is applied to extend the life of the pavement and reduce potholes and to prevent water from entering the pavement to reduce the spread of cracking. The crack-fill program is a very cost-effective program that helps maintain and extend the life of the City’s streets.

 

The following streets are scheduled to be crack-filled starting on Monday, April 27th, and will last a couple of weeks depending on the weather. Watch for the notification signs that will be posted on or near your street. There are some streets listed below that are tentatively scheduled and may not be completed depending on the funds/work needed by each street. The map shows those streets to be completed marked in black and those streets tentatively scheduled marked in the red dash.

 

Crack-filling is a mobile operation that results in minimal disturbance to residences, businesses and motorists, however, lane closures may be required when the contractor is working along thoroughfares. The roadways will remain open to at least one lane of traffic in each direction at all times. Parking may be restricted for short periods of time when the contractor is working along local streets. The work will be performed between the hours of 7 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. There may be some exceptions, if necessary.

 

Trash collection pickup will not be affected by the construction work. Please contact City Hall at (815) 784-2327 if there are any questions regarding the work.
