Rte. 31 & Roosevelt St. Trunk Sewer Main Replacement Project




The City of St. Charles is conducting a sewer and water main replacement project in your neighborhood. Currently the existing infrastructure is in poor condition and frequent breaks cause service outages for local residents. This project will replace and upsize approximately 1,550 liner feet of sanitary sewer and water main along Rte. 31 between Mosedale and Roosevelt Streets. In addition, the project is proposing to replace an additional 2,200 liner feet of sewer main along Roosevelt Street between IL Rte. 31 and Elm Street.  


The contract for this work has been awarded to Martam Construction, Inc. of Elgin, IL.   Tim Wilson, Public Works Manager – Environmental Service, will be the Project Manager for the City of St. Charles.  The City has hired Engineering Enterprises to be the on-site resident engineer to complete construction inspections for the work and to be your personal construction liaison.  Public Works will be the primary contact regarding any construction activity.  We can be reached at 630-377-4405 or by email at publicworks@stcharlesil.gov.  


Expect to see JULIE locates, with construction equipment and staging within the City's easements in middle of April. The majority of the Rte. 31 construction will be completed during the summer. The Roosevelt Street completion will be dependent on the fall weather conditions. The goal is to complete the majority of the Roosevelt Street construction by this November with some landscaping and restoration to be completed in the Spring of 2022.


Construction will start at the intersection of Rte. 31 and Mosedale Street in the early part of May. Rte. 31 will remain open to traffic for the majority of construction, but expect delays due to daily lane closures. At times driveway access will be unavailable during utility repairs, curb and driveway apron replacement.  Notification will be provided in advance of closures.


The City will be coordinating scheduled water shutoffs as part of this project with the impacted customers. This will include a door notification of the expected shut down time and date. The City will make every effort to schedule all water main shutdowns; however, the contractor is replacing a deteoriating water main.  As a result, unexpected water main breaks can occur, resulting in an emergency water main shutdown.
