Woodvale Ave Update - 5/4/2020

May 4, 2020

Last week and despite the rain, the contractor completed the majority of the concrete curb and sidewalk installation along the south/west side of Woodvale. They were also able to complete half of Woodridge Court concrete. 

Today, the contractor plans to pour the last remaining sidewalk along this section.

Also, as previously communicated via hand delivered notices on Friday, the contractor will begin preparing for paving this week. This will include driveway impacts to those that live on the south/west side of Woodvale starting tomorrow (Tuesday). Once fine grading has been completed, the paving contractor will begin paving on Thursday or Friday. This work will impact traffic and also side road access during the paving of these intersections.


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.
