2017-2018 Capital Improvement Projects

CIP Update.jpg
First Quarter Update

The City’s 2017 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is underway with an aggressive schedule to complete approximately $12 million worth of infrastructure design and construction projects.  As one of the City’s four core priorities, infrastructure investment is a major component of the City’s annual 5-year fiscal year budget and work plan. CIP projects are prioritized based on community feedback, health and life safety, the age of infrastructure, economies of scale, functional deficiencies and the reduction of long-term costly repairs. The capital improvement projects can be reviewed with project descriptions and mapped locations on the City’s website at cityhpil.com/construction.

A major CIP project scheduled to begin in May, 2017 is the annual Road Rehabilitation Program. This project focuses on repair and maintenance of the City’s asphalt and concrete streets in order to provide safe thoroughfare for motorists. Residents will be notified in advance of the construction schedule and any planned road closures. 

In addition to road rehabilitation, the City maintains 120 miles of public sidewalk. Sidewalk repairs and replacements will begin in June, 2017. The annual sidewalk repair program addresses tripping hazards and replacement of deteriorated sidewalk panels. The City has many additional projects planned, such as bridge designs and repairs, ravine restoration and improvements, signage and striping for the City’s BikeWalk 2030 project, water main replacements, sanitary and storm sewer improvements, forestry and landscape work, and facilities improvements. 

Residents will be notified by postal mail of any planned CIP construction taking place on their street or in their neighborhood. Other notifications are provided through the City’s communication tools such as the Highlander, City website, eNews and social media. 

Construction hours are from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM on weekdays and from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays. For detailed information on the City’s 2017 CIP projects, visit www.cityhpil.com/construction  or call the Department of Public Works at 847.432.0807.
