Annual Streets Program
The City of Elgin understands the importance of maintaining their infrastructure to protect the taxpayers’ investment. They contract with Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) to provide design and construction engineering services for their Annual Streets Program to provide rehabilitation measures and reduce long-term liabilities in areas in need of maintenance.
Our team provides design and construction engineering for the City’s locally funded annual street resurfacing programs. The 2019 improvements included various road maintenance activities for a total of 3.5 miles of roadway such as pavement resurfacing, sidewalk, curb and gutter, ADA/PROWAG upgrades, and drainage structure installation and adjustments. The project also involved intersection improvements at South Street and Walnut Street that promoted limited access for safer turning movements in an intersection that had been closed for many years.
The 2020 improvements included various road maintenance activities for a total of 2.4 miles of roadway with similar improvements as in 2019. The project also involved the full reconstruction of Price Drive due to failing subgrade under the road.
Engineering services included preliminary street walk through and cost estimates, topographic survey, soil boring coordination and data implementation, plan/specification/bid document preparation, permit acquisition, letting/bid assistance, construction observation, project documentation, and pay estimate coordination. HLR also provided the CCDD permitting necessary for the contractor to remove material from the site. Our Resident Engineer worked as an extension of the City’s staff to ensure that the project was completed on time and on budget.
