Woodvale Ave Update - 4/27/2020

April 27, 2020

Last week, the contractor completed the roadway removals and excavation along Woodvale Ave. After the completion of the removals, the contractor started preparing for the new concrete curbs and sidewalk.

Below is the planned construction schedule for this week and is subject to change due to weather conditions.

As previously communicated via hand delivered notices, the contractor plans on pouring the new concrete curbs tomorrow (Tuesday). The contractor anticipates continuing with the sidewalk installation on Wednesday and Thursday. Please see the below map for locations of this work. Once these items are completed, the contractor will then begin preparing to pave the first layers of asphalt in the next week or two.


This phase of construction will result in heavy truck traffic as material is moved in and out of the site.

TRASH: During the roadway reconstruction phase, please continue to move trash out close to the curb as you normally would. The contractor will be in early on Tuesday mornings to move the trash from the parkway to the street, thereby allowing the trash collection trucks to empty them.

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 is still 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 to with someone regarding the Woodvale Avenue Project.
