Save Yourself a Front-end Alignment

Woodstock Lake Avenue


Within the last two years Lake Avenue was reconstructed and improved between IL Route 47 and U.S. 14. The roadway was widened and a two-way left-turn lane was added. For eastbound drivers the manhole covers seemed to be right where the right tire-track was, and a slight change in elevation in the roadway surface caused an unnecessary “bump” – sometimes, rather jarring.

Now the pavement is already deteriorating in front of City Electric Supply at 1086 Lake Avenue. The pavement is cracking in a circular pattern around the manhole cover and the jarring impact is increasing in severity.

Doesn’t it seem strange that a simple roadway project can’t result in a smooth ride when opened and also that the pavement would not endure more than 1-2 years before repairs are needed?

What is the contractor’s guarantee of good workmanship and who will get stuck with the repair bill? Will the City of Woodstock (and you know who that is; right?) foot the bill? Or will the contractor be required to return and make permanent, long-lasting repairs?
