Leonard St. Road Work (UPDATED)

ATTENTION Village of Jerome residents on Leonard St.:

 Starting Thursday September 22nd, 2022 at 7:00 AM The Village of Jerome has hired a contractor to mill and patch several areas on Leonard St. in conjunction with a chip seal application. This activity will take place over two days. Please refrain from parking on Leonard St. on 22nd and 23rd.

Following the patching of Leonard St., a chip seal will be applied to the entirety of Leonard St. from Wabash Ave. to Iles Ave. During the chip seal application no traffic will be allowed on Leonard St. until the chips have been firmly pressed into the oil. This process is called “cape sealing”, and is the first step in completing a microsurfacing project that is tentatively scheduled to begin on September 26th, 2022. More information on the microsurfacing project will follow shortly.All cars MUST be off the street prior to application of the chip seal or they will be towed at owners expense.
