Drivers on Shooting Park Road in Peru should have noticed a smoother ride this week.

The project to repave a mile of Shooting Park Road between Peoria and Pulaski streets is all but done, with only the surface course left to be applied, said Eric Carls, city engineer.

A pavement marking company was set to start painting late this week or early next week, he said.

A shorter, second phase of complete repaving of Shooting Park Road from Peoria Street west to Church Street will soon begin. This will start with gutter and sidewalk spot repairs, Carls said.

The Shooting Park Road work is more involved than standard resurfacing because it removed all old paving and completely replaced it. It required a base layer, binder course and surface course, with testing and inspections along the way, Carls said.

Len Trovero Construction of La Salle also applied a new asphalt layer this week to Marquette Road, he said.
