Street Maintenance is the responsibility of the Streets and Electrical Division. Maintenance activities include: pothole repair, utility dig patching, grinding and paving of side streets, leaf sweeping and removing debris in the public right-of-way which includes the road, parkway and public sidewalk.
Within Lombard, various streets are maintained by the Village, IDOT, York Township, DuPage County and ISTHA. View the Street Jurisdiction map to check jurisdiction of specific streets.
During the winter months this division concentrates on snow and ice removal on the Village's streets and Village owned parking lots. More information can be found on the Snow Plowing page.
Public Sidewalk Maintenance
There are 220 miles of public sidewalk in Lombard. The Village offers two programs to residents concerning repair or replacement of public sidewalk.
If a trip hazard (an elevation difference of more than 1¼ inch) in the public sidewalk is brought to the Village’s attention, a Public Works crew will either grind the area or ramp the trip hazard with asphalt to mitigate the immediate hazard. If asphalt is applied, the location is added to a list for repair or replacement.
If public sidewalk is in poor aesthetic condition (cracked, crumbling, etc.), residents wishing to replace it may participate in the 50/50 Sidewalk Replacement Program. Through this program, residents pay 50% of the cost to replace each sidewalk square. To apply for this program, download and fill out the application and submit it to the Public Works Department.
Sidewalk Cutting Program
The Village also uses a contractor for sidewalk cutting, which is a process where sidewalk squares raised less than 1-1/4" are sliced and sanded down, in order to avoid having to replace the entire sidewalk. This process is more efficient, improves our community, and costs less than replacement.
Street Lighting is provided by both the Village and ComEd. The Village is responsible for the maintenance of street lights on concrete and metal poles. ComEd is responsible for the maintenance of street lights on wooden poles.
To report a ComEd light out go to comed.streetlightoutages.com or call (800)-EDISON1 (800-334-7661).
