Crabtree & Elmwood - Curb Removal/Replacement

Posted on September 4, 2018 at 3:06 PM by Tyler Dickinson

Tomorrow, the contractor will begin removing concrete curbs on Crabtree Lane and the south side of Elmwood Ave in preparation for the placement of new concrete curbs on Friday 9/7/2018, weather permitting.

Upon completing removal on Wednesday, the contractor will restore driveway access using aggregate material (stone). The temporary stone driveway will be removed on Friday morning at 7:30 AM when the new curb is scheduled to be poured. After the curb has been poured, residents whose driveways are impacted will not be able to access their driveways until the concrete cures (3-5 Days) and passes strength tests.

If you are concerned with parking on the street overnight, the Village recommends taking a neighborly approach to this inconvenience. If possible, please coordinate with your neighbors to allow for overnight parking on their driveway while access to your driveway is impacted. Residents that require daily access to their driveways are encouraged to contact the engineering department.

The Village appreciates your effort in helping to complete this improvement. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the project, (or reach John Guccione on his mobile phone at 847-561-1851 (jguccione@deerfield.il.us)).

Please drive carefully through construction zones.

Paving Tomorrow on Oxford Road and Byron Court

Posted on August 9, 2018 at 3:32 PM by John Guccione

Paving of the final surface course will take place tomorrow on Oxford Road at 7 AM and on Byron Court at 12 pm. 

In efforts to achieve optimal smoothness, this paving operation will result in the complete closure of the roadway.
Therefore, we ask that resident vehicles on Oxford Road be relocated prior to 7 AM on Friday morning, and vehicles on Byron Court be relocated prior to 12 pm on Friday. 

Once paving and compaction is completed, residents will have full access to their driveways
(usually 2-3 hour after compaction (rolling) of the asphalt mix).

During paving operations, please note that homeowners will have access to their property at all times via the parkways and/or sidewalks. However, due to limited space during daytime operations, access to driveways may be delayed or denied at times. Please allow ample time for relocation of vehicles and temporary delays that may occur. Though driveway access may be denied during paving operations, access will be re-established at the end of daytime operations.

Fresh oil will be placed on the pavement early tomorrow morning. This oil allows for a better bond to the existing roadway and lengthens the service life of the new pavement. Residents are advised to drive slowly during this time to prevent oil from splashing on their vehicles. 

Paving operations often include heavy truck traffic and may present minor access delays to residential driveways and to through traffic. During this time and if possible, please avoid the construction operations and utilize the alternate routes.
