Other Maintenance

Traffic Signs

We erect and maintain most of the stop, speed-limit and caution signs on the Township right-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.

Asphalt Patching

Potholes are filled as required.

Crack Sealing

Cracks are sealed to prevent water from seeping into the road. This extends the life of the base pavement.

Streetlights

Within unincorporated York Township, streetlights are maintained by Commonwealth Edison. If you see a streetlight with a burned-out bulb, please call our office, and we will notify Commonwealth Edison’s customer service.

Street Sweeping

Subdivisions with curbs and gutters are swept several times during the year, with special sweeping following construction projects.

Storm Sewers

Storm sewer basins are cleaned as needed. Inlet grates in the street are inspected and cleaned during and after most rainstorms. You may have an inlet on your property. It is your responsibility to keep the grate and basin clean. If you suspect a problem with your backyard drainage, call DuPage County Storm Water Management at (630)407-6800.

The York Township Road District is equipped to handle most of these duties and to contract some with private enterprises. We have excellent intergovernmental cooperation with the municipalities in and around township boundaries. Manpower and equipment are often exchanged to make all of us more efficient.
