Update - 10/18/21

The City of St. Charles is pleased to inform you that Roosevelt Street from Route 31 to Elm Street is being reconstructed.  This project update provides many details about this project, but should you have additional questions please don’t hesitate to contact the City.


The contract for this work has been awarded to Martam Construction of Elgin, IL. Engineering Enterprises, Inc. will be the on-site engineer performing construction inspections and acting as the field liaison to residents and property owners.  Any questions or concerns may be directed to Todd Wells, Engineering Enterprises at (773) 454-4214.


We are working with the contractor to determine the exact dates, but generally anticipate construction to occurs as follows:

  • Concrete Removals (sidewalks, curb and aprons) - In Progress
  • Concrete Replacement (sidewalks, curb and aprons) - Wednesday 10/20/21 and Thursday 10/21/21
  • Asphalt Removal and Replacement (Roosevelt St. and aprons) - Week of 10/25/21
  • Final Restoration - November
  • Project Completion Date - 11/20/21

Please visit the Public Improvements Project page on the City’s website at and look under Rte. 31 & Roosevelt St. Trunk Sewer Main Replacement Project for information on the start dates and for construction updates for each street. 


This project has been divided into three phases to facilitate the completion of the project in a timely manner and with as little disruption to residents and properties as possible:

  • Phase I: The first phase is concrete replacement work, which includes framing and pouring new curb, sidewalks and concrete aprons.  Please note if you have an existing concrete apron, curb and gutter in front of your driveway, and/or sidewalk across your driveway that is being removed and replaced you will not have driveway access for 3 days (from the date that the concrete is poured).  Please relocate your cars to available parking areas on Roosevelt Street or adjacent side streets by 7:00 AM.  Residents will be notified prior to loss of driveway access.  Access can resume when the barricades are removed from your driveway.
  • Phase II: The second phase of construction involves street reconstruction work, which includes pavement milling, new asphalt pavement, and asphalt driveway replacements.  This phase will begin as soon as the concrete in the previous phase has gained sufficient strength to support construction equipment.  Please note that it is anticipated that you will have access to your property at all times during this phase.  However, due to the limited space and the moving construction process, access to your property may be delayed at times.  Please allow ample time for relocation of your vehicle and for temporary delays that may occur.  To assure that work is performed in a timely manner, please do not park vehicles on Roosevelt Street, or within 30 feet of Roosevelt Street on side streets during construction hours 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM. 
  • Phase IIIThe third phase will involve parkway restoration.  All areas disturbed by construction will be restored. A recommended seed maintenance and watering schedule will be available on the project website.

Due to the scope, complexity, and nature of this work, as well as the unpredictability of weather, some delays and disruptions may occur.  There may be times when no work is occurring on your street. We ask for your understanding during these times that the work is being coordinated to be finished by the completion date of November 20th to best that conditions will allow.


Please note that all work will be performed within the City right-of-way.   If you have any type of existing features within the City right-of-way area (i.e. sprinkler system, landscape features, special decorative rocks, brick driveways, electronic “invisible” dog fence, etc.), precautions should be taken by you, the homeowner, to remove or store these items right away to assure that they are not damaged. The City will not repair or replace private appurtenances left within the City right-of-way.


Mail and Garbage service will not be interrupted during construction.  Please leave your garbage at the end of your driveway on your normally scheduled pick up day by 6 am as pick may occur earlier than normal to avoid the construction work.


The City appreciates your continued cooperation and patience during this large-scale project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Todd Wells, PE, Engineering Enterprises, Inc. (773) 454-4214 or via email

Thank you for all of your help and understanding throughout this construction project.  We know you will be better served by these improvements and look forward to serving you in the future.
