While road construction projects oftentimes pose an inconvenience to drivers, they are vital in helping to keep roadways in good shape. Also, they are only temporary, and the benefits far outweigh the brief headaches.
The 2016 Pavement Management Program will resurface or repair 50,424 lineal of roadway in the Village, or a total of 9.55 miles. Click here

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.
