2019 Road to Better Roads

2019 Road To Better Roads Construction Update

Road to Better Roads is the city road rehabilitation program that was established in 2013 to improve the overall quality of Yorkville's road infrastructure. Roads to be included are based on a detailed engineering analysis of every street and comparing it to the cost of repairing the street at various points throughout its lifespan, then selecting the streets that give the City the best value. The more value we get each year, the more roads we can do and the sooner we can do them.  In 2019, the City completed the following work with approximately $553,500 in construction costs:

  • 2.18 Miles of Roadway Paved using 5,547 Tons Asphalt
  • 1,254 Feet of Concrete Curb and Gutter Replaced
  • 17 ADA Sidewalk Ramps Updated
  • 2,900 Sq Ft of Sidewalk Replaced

Park Snapshot - Cannonball Ridge Park (2087 Northland Lane)

Cannonball Ridge Park is a scenic park with a Civil War theme.  Built in 2005, the park features cobble stone walls, battlefield type fencing, rolling hills and two fort themed playground structures for ages 2-5 and 5-12.  This park also consists of a gazebo to provide a shaded resting place, a circle style basketball court with three hoops to encourage neighborhood play and skateboard elements.  Cannonball Ridge is the only park within the Northwest quadrant of Yorkville that provides skateboard elements and is a great place for beginners to try various ground tricks, box flips and grind rails. 
In 2015 an additional 5 acres were added to the park site allowing for a new baseball/softball field along with backstops, sidelines and homerun fence to be added to the park.  A small hill was also added allowing for sledding in the winter.
Many of the parks within Yorkville have been enhanced through Eagle Scout Projects.  A flag pole and additional landscaping were added to Cannonball Ridge Park by a Boy Scout for his Eagle Scout Project.
