Road to Better Roads
About the Program
Road to Better Roads is the city road rehabilitation program that was established in 2013 to improve the overall quality of Yorkville's road infrastructure. The ongoing program will result in roads with improved pavement quality and a prolonged lifespan. Roads to be included are 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 City the best value. The more value we get each year, the more roads we can do and the sooner we can do them.
This program is primarily funded through a road infrastructure fee. All funds collected through the road infrastructure fee will go directly to the Road to Better Roads program. This plan will also address a number of growing water and sewer infrastructure issues by replacing aged water and sewer lines.

- How do you determine which roads to include in the Road to Better Roads Program?
- Is everything in the Road to Better Roads program set in stone?
- How will I know in advance when my street is being worked on?
- My street isn’t on the 5-year schedule but it looks really awful. Shouldn’t you fix it?
During 2018 the RTBR program will consist of the milling and resurfacing of the pavement along several streets within the City as noted in the attached map. The project may begin as early as May and should be completed by mid-July. Impacts to traffic are expected to be minimal; however daytime lane and roadway closures should be expected.
Starting soon, the City will begin a rehabilitation project on the street adjacent to your residence. The project will generally consist of pavement milling/removal, base repair/patching, miscellaneous sidewalk and curb and gutter repair, new asphalt pavement and restoration. It is anticipated that the project will be substantially complete by the July 13th. Throughout the duration of the project, lane closures and minor delays should be expected. There will be times where access to your driveway will be limited; you will be notified prior to loss of access, to allow time for you to move your vehicle.
