Brierhill Road Project Construction Update #1

The Village would like to thank all of you that showed up to Wednesday’s Brierhill Road Project public meeting. The meeting was well attended and many important topics were covered. Some of the topics that were covered were:

LIMITING DAILY TRAFFIC

  • Temporary mailboxes will be set up near Deerfield Rd. The USPS will utilize these temporary mailboxes throughout the project to ensure daily delivery. Delivery to these temp mailboxes will begin Wednesday the 22nd.
  • Beginning Wednesday the 22nd, Waste Management will be starting weekly trash collection at 6am. This will help to avoid conflicts with the contractor during construction. Please be sure to have both trash and recycling out Tuesday night.
  • Landscapers will be asked to not come during regular business hours when the contractor will be working, regardless of whether or not they can park in a driveway. Therefore, all landscapers are asked to come between 5:30pm – 8:30pm during the week and 8:30am – 5:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

OFFSITE PARKING

  • Brierhill-Road-Parking-MapThe Village will be allowing offsite parking for the duration of the project for those that wish to do so. The map on the right has the approved overnight parking locations. This information has been communicated with the Village Police Department. If parking offsite, please remember to park on the correct side of the road and not to park in front of driveways or fire hydrants. Also, this is a blanket approval through this area so license plates or window placards are not necessary. Parking on these side streets will be allowed beginning Monday, March 27th.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

Next Monday, the contractor will begin tree and brush removals as well as installation of erosion control measures. Due to a procurement issue, the contractor is now planning on starting the water main work on Monday the 27th.

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.

Please drive through the construction zone.
