Brierhill Road Project Construction Update – 7/14/2017


The contractor continued the pavement removals and curb & gutter installation.


Pavement Removals

Due to the rain, the contractor was not able to finish the pavement removals this week as planned and will finish the pavement removals and excavation on the north end near Deerfield Rd on Monday. The contractor will continue to use a flagger to safely control traffic at Deerfield Rd. Once the removals are complete on Monday (weather dependent), the contractor will move to excavating isolated locations within the roadway that have failed since the initial excavation. These will be at seemingly random locations and will require a smaller operation than the previous pavement excavations.


The contractor will continue to install curbs next week along Brierhill Rd. This curb work will continue to be predominantly one side at a time and may begin to impact driveways towards the end of the week. As previously talked about, the impacts to driveways may require coordination between neighbors as parking in neighboring driveways may be needed. Outside of construction hours, parking in front of homes will be permissible.


In the next 2-3 weeks, the contractor will be ready to pave the roadway. However, due to the width constraints of the roadway and curbs, traffic will be unable to pass the paving operations during the paving of Brierhill Rd. Therefore, the Village has authorized the contractor to pave at night. This will begin on the south end at around 9pm and will be completed by 4 – 5am. This will help limit any impacts to the daytime motorists. The Village will be working with the contractor to give as much advance warning to all residents as possible prior to the paving.



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.
