Pavement Management Program

The 2018 Pavement Management Program will resurface or repair 8.81 miles (144,704 feet) of roadway in the Village. A map detailing which streets will be resurfaced or patched is available.

Resurfacing work utilizes the heat scarification process, which is an efficient and cost-effective recycling measure. The system heats and then smoothens the existing street asphalt in preparation for a new overlay. Tinley Park has been recognized by the asphalt recycling industry for using this environmentally friendly program.

Please note that heat from the scarification process can cause temporary discoloration of grass and tree leaves near the project, but the color will return in a few months.

Update [May 22, 2018]: All concrete work is completed on all streets included in the awarded contract. Concrete work on the added streets in the Odyssey subdivision will be done when the contractor is back in the area on an adjacent private job. All other work is suspended until the heater scarifying machine is available, which looks to be the first or second week of June. The contractor will not be allowed to start edge grinding until the Village has a date certain for the scarifying machine. Paving will start the first or second week of June.
