August 12, 2019

Work Completed Last Week:

The contractor completed the water main work near / under the Metra tracks last week, thereby completing the new water main.
 The contractor also continued to remove and prepare the existing sub base for the new roadway. On Friday, the contractor completed the installation of the new curbs on both sides of the road.

Anticipated Schedule for This Week:

The contractor will be working expeditiously this week to ensure that the roadway is opened before school begins next week as planned.

The contractor will be replacing sidewalks and concrete driveway aprons today. On Tuesday, they will be fine grading the roadway for planned paving on Wednesday. During paving operations, residential driveways and Greenwood Ct will be impacted during the day during paving but will be accessible again at the end of the day. At the end of the week, the contractor will be completing traffic signal work, pavement striping, and other miscellaneous items to ensure the roadway is opened as planned before school.

Percentage Complete: 36%

Neighborhood Impacts:

Residents who live within the full roadway closure will need to be aware of the contractor’s location as that may dictate the best way to get out of the closure. At times, vehicles will not be able to pass the contractor’s work operations which may result in delays to local traffic. Caution should be practiced through the construction work zone and residents must be alert for workers and construction equipment. During the curb installation, residents will need to find alternative parking locations during the concrete curing process.

The Village appreciates your patience while we complete this improvement. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490.

Please be advised that the information communicated here is a forecast of proposed operations which may change due to contractor availability and/or weather conditions.
