2017 Street Rehab Project

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 11:03 AM by David Fitzgerald

Dear Resident:

The purpose of this correspondence is to inform you of the upcoming street rehabilitation construction project on your street and to inform you of the project related public meeting that will be held on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. The meeting will take place at Deerfield Village Hall, located at 850 Waukegan Road.

The purpose of this project is to reconstruct and/or rehabilitate the existing Village-owned infrastructure on several streets throughout the Village.  The project will include complete rehabilitation/replacement of the existing roadway, storm sewer repair/replacement, intermittent curb and gutter repair/replacement, and sidewalk replacement. 

The Department of Public Works and Engineering has identified the following locations to be included in this year’s project.
Street Construction Limits Estimated Start Date
1a Pine St Lake Cook to Hackberry March 15, 2017
1b Laurel Ave Pine to Willow March 15, 2017
1c Terrace Ct Pine to west limits March 15, 2017
2 Garand Dr Montgomery to Wilmot June 2017
3 Fair Oaks Oakley to Chestnut July 2017
4a Wincanton Ave North to Warwick August 2017
4b East Canton Cul-de-sac August 2017
4c West Canton Cul-de-sac August 2017

Project Schedule: To facilitate the work and keep the contractor on schedule, the project will be divided into three stages within each location: Stage I - underground utility work; Stage II - concrete curb removal/replacement, sidewalk repair and roadway rehabilitation; and Stage III - parkway restoration. Construction will be underway at various locations simultaneously.

Stage I:  Underground utility work
Stage I includes storm sewer work as it relates to roadway drainage and minor water main repairs. The majority of construction will be performed in the roadway area with the exception of the replacement of storm sewer structures within the parkway area. If you have existing appurtenances within the parkway or Village Right of Way, such as sprinkler system, electronic “invisible” dog  fence, landscape features, special decorative rocks, special vegetative plantings, etc., you should remove or  store these items to avoid damage by construction activity. The Village will not repair or replace private appurtenances left within the parkway or Village Right of Way that are damaged during construction. 

Stage II:   Concrete curb removal/replacement, sidewalk repair, roadway rehabilitation

Stage II will begin upon completion of the underground utility work.  Work will be performed as follows:  

Removal and replacement of all deteriorated curbs and sidewalks.
Removal of roadway pavement and placement of new bituminous asphalt pavement.          
Repair of driveway sections and sidewalk impacted by construction.  

During Stage II residents may not have access to their driveways and the road will be closed to through traffic while concrete curbs, driveway aprons, and concrete sidewalk are being installed. Residents will be advised to park their vehicles on adjacent streets during construction hours (7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) or in front of their homes after construction hours. The Deerfield Police Department will be notified that residents will be parking in these areas during this stage of construction. Note: The final surface is scheduled to be completed in the first half of October.

Stage III:    Parkway restoration   
All parkway areas disturbed by construction activity will be restored. Construction is expected to be completed by November 15, 2017. However, due to the complex nature of the project and the unpredictability of the weather, some delays and disruptions may occur.  Additional construction notices will be provided as the project progresses.  If you are planning a special event, such as a wedding or large party, or have special needs, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
