Mayor's Newsletter Public Works Street Closures


The City of Jerseyville Street Department, in combination with a private contractor, is scheduled to complete our annual oil & chip seal program the week of September 11, weather-permitting.

The following streets are scheduled for the 2023 program: Lott, Oak, Woodlawn, Northmoor, Dressel, Hawbrook, West Fairgrounds, Sunset, Chestnut, Walnut, Sarah, Liberty, Warren, Woodlawn, Fremont, Leavett, Snedeker, Short, Oakwood, Davis, Forest, Pleasant, Lovejoy, and possibly others.

No parking will be allowed on the streets from 7:00AM to 6:00PM, and residents in these areas will experience short-term street closures, traffic/biking/walking delays, blocked driveways, and potential garbage collection delays.

Access will be provided in the event of emergencies only. The contractor will be installing a layer of oil and a layer of small rock. There will be short-term dust and some loose rock on the street after placement, which the City will sweep-up at a later date on an as-needed basis.

Please note that for the next few weeks prior to September 11, the City crews will be completing preparatory work on the affected streets – grading along edges, patching, ditch cleaning – so some of the roadway areas will be in rough condition between the time of prep work and oil/chip seal work.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we complete these important improvements within our street system, in your neighborhood. For more detailed information regarding this notice, please call 618-498-3312 or visit our website at
