The Public Works Department is responsible for 87 miles of Village-owned roadways, including street patching, signs and pavement markings, snow and ice management, sidewalk improvement program, street sweeping, parking meter maintenance, and parking lot and street light maintenance in the Central Business District. 
Street and Sidewalk Maintenance
The Village of Glen Ellyn maintains a majority of streets and sidewalks within the Village limits; however several major thoroughfares are maintained by the DuPage County Department of Transportation and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).  Geneva Road, St. Charles Road and Park Boulevard south of Raintree Drive/Buena Vista Drive are maintained by the DuPage County Department of Transportation.  If you have questions or concerns regarding a street maintained by DuPage County, please call 630-407-6900.  Roosevelt Road (Route 38), Route 53, and Butterfield Road (Route 56) are the responsibility of the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).  If you have questions or concerns regarding a street maintained by IDOT, please call 847-705-4000.
Resurfacing and reconstruction of Village streets is included in the Street Rehabilitation Program, which ensures that Village streets do not deteriorate excessively. For more information on the current 10-Year program, please visit the Engineering and Construction Webpage.
