Home / MUNICIPAL / Highway & Transportation Projects


As Village Engineers for several municipalities, HBE has taken a proactive approach to existing roadway rehabilitation and reconstruction. Our staff of engineers and technicians have extensive expertise and knowledge in planning, design and construction of roadway and alley improvements. HBE believes strongly in providing value engineering to our municipal clients, while considering the needs of our residential, commercial and industrial residents who must live and work through the inconvenience of a road reconstruction project.

The following are some examples of our more recent roadway projects:

Residential Streets/Bond Issue
Willow Springs, IL

As Village Engineers, Hoefferle-Butler Engineering was responsible for the preliminary evaluations, topographic mapping, field reconnaissance, design, construction staking and project management for a $3.7 million multi-year road program in the Village of Willow Springs, IL. Alternate Revenue Bonds were issued for the project based upon Bond Council projections using opinions of project costs developed by HBE. Residents of the Village were consulted and kept informed of the project scope through numerous advisory meetings in addition to required Public Hearings. The project involved the removal of approximately three miles of existing rural cross section local streets and parkway drainage ditches and replacement with urban streets meeting current design
standards, including curb/gutter, new storm sewer, and landscaping restoration. Care was taken throughout design to minimize any damage to mature trees, a valued asset to this community. Included in the roadway improvement project was the $450,000 rehabilitation of existing sanitary sewers. Sewers along the construction route were televised, inspected and evaluated for repairs prior to any roadway construction

2001-2003 Street Improvements
Bridgeview, IL

HBE provided to the village professional services for plans, specifications, contracts and in-house field services for the reconstruction of numerous streets within the Village of Bridgeview. Projects consisted of the removal and replacement of 8.6 miles of bituminous pavement surface, reconstruction of 430 drainage structures, and the removal of 11,300 lineal feet of curb and gutter.
