Miscellaneous Maintenance

Traffic Signs

We erect and maintain most of the stop, speed limit and caution signs on Township rights-of-way. Stop signs are inspected weekly and other signs are inspected each month. If you notice a missing sign, please notify this office so we may quickly replace it and avoid potential accidents. Stop Signs and Speed Limit Signs, new or changes to existing signs, are regulated by the DuPage County Engineer. Requests for signs or sign changes must come from the Township Highway Commissioner. Do Not Contact the County directly; contact the Road District office, 630-231-8850 to start the procedure.

Not all ditches need to be re-ditched. This work is performed April to October. Ditching is scheduled by the area (subdivision), not necessarily by the address. Restoration to the worked area will be completed at a later time. You will be put on the ditch list when you call.

Mowing

We mow rural area rights-of-way 4-5 times per season.
