Construction season is upon us and we are involved with improvements to the Township.
We have two general contractors (D Construction and M&J Asphalt) who will be doing the bulk of the improvements.
D Construction will be paving Simons Road from the Township border to Douglas Road, Reservation Road from the ‘S’ curve east to Grove Road, Tomahawk Trail from Reservation Road to the Township’s southern limits and Laurie Lane in its entirety.
M&J Asphalt will do miscellaneous concrete repairs and asphalt patching in Boulder Hill. They will also repave Shell Ct, Shore Ct and Dolphin Ct.
Construction is supposed to start this month and finish sometime in July with any organic restoration (grass seed and topsoil) to be done after August 31st.
As good stewards of your tax dollars, we are trying to make as many improvements to as many Road District streets and sidewalks as possible; improvements that will enhance the property values of the residents of Oswego Township.
If you don’t see your street being improved, it simply means that we’ve exhausted the monies allocated for this year. Know that we will continue trying to improve all 70 miles of street in Oswego Township, yours may happen in the future. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-264-4587.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: Parking After 2 Inches of Snowfall
The Oswego Township Road District would like to send a friendly reminder to all residents that our Winter Snow Parking Ordinance will now be going into effect. During the Winter season, we request all residents to please remove your vehicles from the roadway when 2 inches of snow has fallen. This is so our plows can clear roads for both the safe travel of residents and to guarantee emergency vehicles are able to respond quickly to priority calls.
Please note the Township Snow Parking Ordinance 2018-10 applies to all of unincorporated Oswego Township including roads, streets, alleys, highways and cul-de-sacs. The Ordinance states that no person shall park or leave standing or unattended a motor vehicle upon any such street or part of a street during or after a snowfall in which there is an accumulation of 2 inches of snow or more. Cars may return to roadways after the lane of traffic nearest the curb has been cleared of snow.
We ask residents to please remember this ordinance is for the safety of all and that the Oswego Township Road District strives to provide the best and most efficient roadway service to the Township. As such, our office will be out during any snowfall enforcing this safety ordinance. If any vehicle is parked on the roadway after 2 inches of snowfall, and has already received a warning, we will be forced to remove the vehicle at the owner’s expense so that our plows can continue to clear roads. Please help us in making our Township’s roadways safe, and as always if you have any questions, you can call the Highway Department at 630-264-4587.
Thank you for your assistance this Winter Season.
