Greenwood PAVING Update - November 3

PAVING UPDATE

As you are aware, the contractor was not able to pave the final layer of asphalt last week as planned due to the unexpected weather. However, the final layer of paving on Greenwood Ave. will take place tomorrow, Monday, November 4, 2019. The contractor has been approved for an early start time to ensure that they are able to complete this work in one day. Also, in an effort to minimize issues with the mandatory priming of the roadway with fresh oil (see reverse side for more info), the contractor will apply the prime coat beginning at 5 a.m. on Monday morning. An early application helps in reducing impacts to the traveling vehicles.

Paving operations will include heavy truck traffic and will present major delays to through traffic. During this time and if possible, please avoid the construction operations and utilize adjacent roadways. During paving operations, homeowners will have access to their property at all times via their driveway. However, due to limited space, access to driveways may be impacted while paving operations are in the vicinity. All driveways will be accessible at the completion of the work day.

The contractor will work to ensure that daily traffic is minimally impacted by utilizing traffic flaggers. Please be mindful and obey these flaggers if traveling through the work are
a.

The Village appreciates your effort in helping to complete this improvement. If you have any questions or need additional information, please visit the Village website’s project blog or contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at
