The Village of Godfrey will continue to repair of the streets in Piasa Hills following the massive infrastructure upgrade that brought sewer service to the area. The first third of the repair project was done last year, and the final third is projected to be completed next year. Mahoney Asphalt has submitted the winning bid to resurface Phase 2 of the three phases, at a cost of $174,000.
The Piasa Hills Sewer Project caused significant damage to the roads in that subdivision, so it has been a priority as the money becomes available. The money is coming from the Motor Fuel Tax Fund, according to Godfrey's Director of Maintenance, Jim Lewis.
The project would have to be started within 10 days of receiving IDOT approval, and weather permitting, Lewis says it will be done by the end of the year. The Village Board has also approved the placement of new stop signs at the intersection of Rockgate Drive and Wedgewood Drive.
