Current Project

Northtown Road Reconstruction

Stark began work in August 2013 for the Town of Normal on the final phase of the Northtown Road reconstruction project. This nearly $4 million dollar roadway project required widening Northtown Road between Linden Street and Towanda Avenue. The project involved the complete removal and replacement of approximately 6,000 feet of Northtown Road, including the storm sewer, lime modified sub grade, concrete paving, sidewalks, driveways, and a bike trail extension from the Constitution Trail to Towanda Avenue. The initial stage of the project completed in November 2013 encompassed 33% of the overall project. Remaining stages were started in April with completion expected by November 2014. As with any local road projects, Stark crews were challenged with accommodating homeowners and maintaining local traffic while converting an existing rural two lane road to a modern three lane thoroughfare. Clear communication amongst the diverse Stark crews and precise coordination with subcontractors were keys to maintaining a successful project outcome. Superintendent: Jim Meyers
