ST. CHARLES – Crews from the St. Charles public works department will be patching potholes and cracks on streets throughout the city in the next few months.
The work is expected to continue through October. Crews will use a trailer-mounted machine to fill potholes with a mixture that creates a durable and permanent patch.
Immediately following patching, loose gravel will be applied where the road was repaired. The gravel patches will be flattened and are safe to drive over, city officials said. Excess gravel will be swept up from the roadway two to five days after application.
Roads will remain open during the patching process, but drivers should expect some minor delays. More information is available by calling the city’s public works department at 630-377-4405 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
