Pesotum board approves street-resurfacing project

PESOTUM — The Pesotum Village Board, at a special meeting Tuesday, passed a resolution for street resurfacing to be done this summer.

After the Illinois Department of Transportation approves the plans, bids will be solicited for repairs on Park Street, Church Street, Washington Street and Weasel Drive, the south end of Hickory Street, an alley off Lincoln Street near the post office, on Locust Street from Madison Street to the end, and on Madison Street from Walnut to Park streets.

Most streets will be seal-coated with oil-and-chip.

The project also includes completely digging out Harness and Surrey lanes, which are cul-de-sacs, and putting an overlay on them.

An overlay will also be put on the intersection of Hickory and Jefferson streets.

Total estimated cost of the project is $41,000, which will be paid for through the motor fuel tax fund.

Engineer Don Koeberlein determined which streets were in the greatest need of repair, according to Village President Cheryl Smitley.
