Island Lake to resurface less than mile of roadway

ISLAND LAKE – Just under a mile of roadway will be resurfaced this summer, the Island Lake Village Board decided.

It awarded the six-road project to Geske and Sons for about $233,000 at its meeting Thursday evening.

A start date hasn't been set yet, but the work should take about two weeks, Public Works Director Willie Kootstra said.

The roads to be resurfaced include Forest Drive from Landsend Court to Eastway Drive and all of Landsend Court, Brierhill Drive, Oakwood Road, Locust Avenue and Hill Court.

In total, 4,300 feet, or 0.81 miles, of roadway will be repaved.

They were picked based on need and whether they met the regulations of the Community Development Block Grant, which is covering just over $90,000 worth of the project, Kootstra said.

The remainder is being funded through motor-fuel tax dollars.
