Why is my street being torn up?

Kara Banks

Residents have been telling the city for years that road improvements are the number one priority.  Citizen Surveys in 2013, 2015 and 2018 put road conditions at the top of the list for needed improvements. So, the City of Edgerton is replacing several streets where the pavement is past its useful life.

Based on a survey from several years ago, the roadway surface was labeled as “failed,” so maintenance was stopped. That’s where this project started. The potholes, unevenness, and cracking across the pavement surface will all be fixed.

Crews will also be doing storm water work and grading the road to keep water from ponding on the road surface.
