The Public Works Department minimized questions and concerns by using these electronic media options. For those who preferred more traditional methods, staff was also available to answer questions through phone calls and face to face briefings," explained Schwab.

Originally, the Village's Capital Improvement Plan for this area was a total reconstruction of the all the roads. The preliminary price tag for this was $18 million. According to project manager and Village Civil Engineer, Ray Schwab, full road reconstruction would have been the traditional preferred method but because of the Village's budget constraints, a less expensive option needed to be implemented to prolong the life of all the roads within the Industrial Park. "The Village saw the Ultra Thin Whitetopping process as a viable alternative. Whitetopping could extend the life of the existing pavement by 10 to 15 years using considerably less dollars than full reconstruction," Schwab explained. Ultra Thin Whitetopping has primarily been used in rural areas with divided highways. However, this wasn't the first time the Public Works Department has used this resurfacing alternative. "Ultra Thin Whitetopping was used in 2003, as a test project on Grace Street between Madison Street and Morningside Avenue. We are pleased with how the pavement on Grace Street has performed over time," said Schwab.
"Future use of the whitetopping process will be based on the long term condition of the Grace Street and the North Industrial Park projects. If the technique is still viewed favorably by Village staff and administration, use of the Whitetopping process for future capital projects will be considered," Schwab concluded.
Lombard Village Engineer, Dave Dratnol, attributed the success of the North Industrial Park Ultra Thin Whitetopping Project to the planning and coordination. "All the coordination that was done for this project by the participants including the design engineer, the consultant, the construction company and the Village services helped maintain access for the businesses," he said.
In October 2010, Public Works Engineering along with the design Prada Bags 2017 Prices engineer, Civiltech Engineering, construction engineer, Baxter Woodman, geotechnical/construction material engineer, SEECO Consultants, General Contractor, Plote Construction and the Illinois Chapter of American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) held a job site "open house" for local engineering consultants, local municipal officials and their technical staff to witness a demonstration of the Whitetopping process. According to the Illinois ACPA, the attendees "were impressed by the speed of construction and overall appearance of the overlay project."
Most of the existing pavement within the project area was constructed between 35 and 40 years ago and has exceeded its primary service life. Patching the streets was a satisfactory short term solution but the large volume of truck traffic had significantly contributed to the deteriorating condition of the pavement. All of the roadways in the Industrial Park were in need of repair. Village engineering staff considered both long and short term options that kept project costs in check and addressed how businesses could continue to effectively operate during roadway construction.
Lombard Public Works Department Receives Recognition for North Industrial Park Project
LOMBARD, Illinois The Village of Lombard's Public Works Department instituted a strategy to resolve the Prada Nylon Bag Red
and equipment operator union labor dispute set the project's start date back three weeks. According to Schwab, "Despite the setback due to the strike and some adverse weather conditions in late November, the project was substantially completed in November and is anticipated to be fully completed under contract cost. The awarded construction contract was $2.67 million and the current contract amount is $2.62 million. Final landscaping on Main Street and DuPage Avenue will be addressed in the spring," he added.
Many technical factors had to be considered prior to design and construction of the project, but the impact to the local businesses was a top priority to the Public Works Department. Input was sought from the North Industrial Park occupants to assist in minimizing the interruptions to their businesses. Questionnaires were sent out and informational meetings were held with the business/property owners in order to gain input and to better understand their operations. Communication between the Village and the businesses was crucial to the success of the project. Schwab said that communication tools such as Twitter, e mail notifications and construction newsletters were utilized by the Village to deliver continuous messages to everyone regarding project updates. "We were able to communicate daily to the business owners Prada Handbag Green
In a recent on line issue of the trade publication, "Public Works", the project was recognized for the use and uniqueness of utilizing Ultra Thin Whitetopping in an urban area. The project was also recognized by the Portland Cement Association (PCA), which posted an article about the project on their website.

The use of this procedure, Ultra Thin Whitetopping, extends the life of the existing pavement and has earned the Public Works Department recognition from the concrete industry and local municipalities.
