·         Began Roadway excavation and installation of gravel base.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, July 17th to July 21st

·         Prepare for concrete curb & gutter installation

The underground utility work has been completed along the project site including water main replacement, water service replacement, sanitary sewer service replacement, and storm sewer improvements. The project has now moved into the roadway reconstruction phase.

The roadway reconstruction phase includes removing the existing concrete pavement and existing materials below the pavement to obtain a stable base. The roadway will be constructed with a geotechnical fabric between existing ground the gravel base, new 3-inch and 1 ¼-inch gravel base with a total depth of approximately 12-inches, 9-inches of asphalt pavement, and new concrete curb & gutter.

The roadway excavation and installation of geotechnical fabric and gravel base are in the process of being constructed. The next step will be to prepare for and pour the concrete curb & gutter followed to fine grading the gravel base and paving the first layers of asphalt pavement.

Over the next 2 weeks, driveway access will be restricted to all residents along the project site. Access will be restricted from the time the string-line for the concrete curb & gutter is set to the paving of the first layers of asphalt pavement. The exact dates for the beginning of driveway restrictions is not yet determined, but it will likely start early the week of July 17th with access restored by July 28thThe Village of Glenview will provided notices to all residents affected by the driveway restrictions. The notification will include dates and times to have vehicles removed from the driveway, available parking options, and anticipated timeframe access will be restored.

As you are aware, a significant rainfall event occurred during the middle of the week.  Unfortunately due to the stage of the construction, a portion of the roadway was closed until the roadway could be made passible the following day.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding as you deal with the extended driveway restriction in the coming weeks.

The contractor will continue with water service replacements. Water services will be replaced from the new water main to the existing valve and box located in front of each home. During the water service replacement, water to individual homes will be shut-off for approximately 2-3 hours while the transition from the old service to the new service is made. The contractor will notify each resident individually regarding the approximate time and day of the water shut-off prior to turning off the water.

As stated in previous posts, since this project is funded by the Village of Glenview, construction will not be delayed due to the current shut-down of IDOT projects.


Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th Weekend.
