Last week, the contractor continued with the installation of the new storm sewer from North Avenue to the south limits. The contractor also completed the water main connection at North Avenue on Friday for the new section of water main at the north end of Woodvale Avenue.

This week, the contractor will work to complete the storm sewer installation throughout the project. This at times will cause delays in through traffic. During these situations, motorists are encouraged to use adjacent roadways to avoid the construction. The contractor will also work perform all necessary testing requirements on the new water main with the anticipation of putting this into service next week.

The Village’s infrastructure construction projects fit under an exemption per the Governor’s Stay at Home order. Outdoor activities, like construction projects, generally will provide for good social distancing that poses little risk of transmission, but it still is important to ensure the ability to wash or sanitize hands and take other precautions. Village and contractor personnel will continue to practice safe social distancing and sanitation efforts during the construction. 

If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the Woodvale Avenue Project.

Please remember to drive and walk carefully through the construction zone.
