Gary Avenue Improvements
Phase I Engineering is underway for proposed improvements to Gary Avenue from Jewell Road to Harrison Ave. The project will include pavement reconstruction, a new traffic signal at Prairie Avenue, extension of the existing box culvert at Winfield Creek, and installation of an off-street multi-use path along the northeast side of the road.
Roosevelt Road Corridor Plan
In 2018, the City selected the consultant team of Camiros, Ltd. and Valerie Kretchmer & Associates to prepare a Comprehensive Plan/Market Study/Zoning Ordinance Update for the Roosevelt Road Corridor; a nearly two-mile-long corridor extending from Carlton Avenue on the west to the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn border on the east (just past Lorraine Road). The Roosevelt Road Corridor Comprehensive Plan/Market Study/Zoning Ordinance Update process will result in the identification of specific action items that will allow the City to advance the shared vision conceived by this effort.
Sanitary Sewer Capacity Improvement Plan
The City of Wheaton recognizes that sanitary sewer backups are a prime concern of Wheaton residents and their quality of life. To address this problem, the City of Wheaton and the Wheaton Sanitary District developed a long-range plan that will ultimately increase capacity and reduce excess flow in the sanitary sewer system.
Sewer Lining Process
Pipe lining rehabilitates and extends the useful life of sewer lines by installing a resin-infused felt tube into a deteriorated pipe. This process is fast and cost-effective when compared with other methods of repair.
Sidewalk Replacement Program
The City continues working on a long-term program to replace highly defective sidewalk squares throughout the City.
