The Village of Plainfield is spending nearly $940,000 to improve the condition of roadways in the area.

The Plainfield Village Board Monday awarded the $937,671 contract to D Construction to improve public roadways as part of the motor fuel tax street

improvement program. The firm bid 12.37 percent below the engineer's estimate

of $1,070,000.

The work includes asphalt resurfacing on 248th Avenue; 127th Street from Meadow Lane to Route 30; Renwick Road from Indian Boundary Road to Drauden Road and from Route 59 to Howard Street; and Wallin Drive from Ottawa Street to north of Lockport Street.

Also included in the project will be the removal and replacement of selected areas of concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter removal and replacement, drainage improvements and pavement striping.

The money from the project comes from the village's motor fuel tax fund.
