Greenwood PAVING Update - October 25

Posted on October 25, 2019 at 2:54 PM by Tyler Dickinson

October 25, 2019


This is a notice that the first layer of paving will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The contractor has been approved for a 7:30 a.m. 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 this prime coat beginning at 5 a.m. on Saturday. An early application helps in reducing impacts to the traveling vehicles.

During tomorrow’s operation, the contractor will place the first layer of hot mix asphalt. Once this lift of asphalt has time to cool, traffic will be permitted to travel across it. This will leave roughly 2 inch gap at the curb which is accessible by slow moving vehicles through the driveway approaches.  The contractor will return next week (tentatively Wednesday) to place the remaining surface course asphalt.  Additional notice will be provided prior to surface course paving.

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. 

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.
