2017 Brierhill Road Infrastructure Project

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 11:19 AM by David Fitzgerald

A public meeting regarding the upcoming Brierhill Road Infrastructure Improvement Project will be held on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will take place at Deerfield Village Hall, located at 850 Waukegan Road. We will also be introducing our consulting engineer, who will be onsite throughout the project. All residents are strongly encouraged to attend.

The scope of this project will include installation of new water main, lining of the sanitary sewers, complete replacement of the existing roadway, installation of new ribbon curb, and parkway restoration. This project will be challenging due to the dead end roadway and the limited right of way. For these reasons, residents may experience certain inconveniences including but not limited to: water service disruptions, mail delivery (temporary mailboxes will be installed near Deerfield Road), trash collection (moved to a 6 a.m. collection), and limited street parking. As street parking will be prohibited during construction hours, all landscapers will be asked to perform their work on Saturday or Sunday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.. when street parking is allowed.  

Project Schedule: To facilitate the work and keep the contractor on schedule, the project will be divided into three stages: Stage I - underground utility work; Stage II - concrete curb installation and roadway rehabilitation; and Stage III - parkway restoration. The contractor is anticipating beginning construction on Monday, March 20, 2017.

Stage I:
  Underground utility work Stage I will include the traffic control installation, water main and water service installation, and sanitary sewer repairs. The majority of construction will be performed in the roadway area with the exception of the replacement of water services and possible sanitary work within the parkway area. As previously communicated, if you have existing appurtenances within the parkway or Village Right of Way, such as a special decorative mailbox, 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 During Stage II, the contractor will remove the existing roadway pavement, install the new ribbon curb, and pave the roadway. During this work, residents may not have access to their driveways for three to five days  while concrete curbs and driveway aprons are being installed. Residents will be asked to park their vehicles in neighboring driveways during construction hours (7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) or in front of their homes after construction hours.

Stage III:    Parkway restoration   All parkway areas disturbed by construction activity will be restored. Construction is expected to be completed by August 15, 2017, with some restoration expected to take place in September. 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.

The Village appreciates your effort in helping to complete this improvement. 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 Brierhill Road Project.
