What is Full-Depth Reclamation
and Soil Stabilization?
Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR) & Soil Stabilization is a method of flexible roadway rehabilitation where the existing base/subgrade is reclaimed (recycled), stabilized, and incorporated into the proposed pavement section. It is cost effective and time efficient versus removing and replacing the roadway.
Did You Know?
Streets that receive the Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR) treatment can last up to 25 years as opposed to roadway resurfacings that typically last only 10 to 12 years.
Sanitary Sewer Upsizing and Extension:
The main challenge with new sewer installation and extension is the proposed sewer's location depth within the ground. The proposed sanitary sewer is designed to transport sewage using gravity: waste will travel through the pipe from a high to low elevation. However, the extension to Sandbloom Road will need to be beneath Souwanas Creek. To achieve the appropriate sewer depth of 30 feet, the Village must use very large equipment, an experienced team, and careful construction methods. For the safety of local residents and construction crews, traffic will be detoured during the deep sewer installation.
Precast Three-Sided Box Culvert:
This project will replace the existing culvert with an environmentally-friendly three-sided box culvert.
Some of the benefits of the culvert include:
Drainage Improvements: Souwanas Trail and Schuett Street
During heavy rain events, portions of the street and residential properties experience standing water and in the worst cases, water encroaches on the homes of residents. The existing storm sewer on Schuett Street will be upsized along the south side of the road and additional drainage structures will be added to reduce the probability of flooding during heavy rainfall.
On Souwanas Trail, an existing storm sewer line along the north parkway carries rainwater from the road and north properties to the west with an outlet to the Fox River. To accommodate additional flow during heavy rainfall, a second parallel storm sewer pipe will be installed along the south side of Souwanas Trail as part of the project.
Water Main Improvements: Schuett Street
This project will replace the 50 year old water main on Schuett Street. The current water main is undersized to meet the demands of recent modeling and updated water codes. By upsizing the water main, the Village will improve water service reliability for residents.
