2018 Street Rehab Project

Posted on April 19, 2018 at 3:47 PM by Kylie Cerk

Dear Resident:

The purpose of this correspondence is to inform you of the upcoming street rehabilitation construction project on your street. This notice also serves as an invitation to the project-related public meeting that will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will take place at Deerfield’s Village Hall, located at 850 Waukegan Rd.

The Department of Public Works and Engineering has identified various locations to be included in this year’s project. Locations and scope of work per location is provided on the map linked here
Project Schedule: Construction has already begun at many locations. Please attend the public meeting to learn more about specific start dates per location. 

In general, 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 and/or fire hydrants within the parkway area. If you have existing appurtenances within the parkway or Village right-of-way (i.e. sprinkler system, electronic “invisible” dog fence, landscape features, special decorative rocks, special vegetative plantings), you should remove/relocate 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 and 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  Note: Reconstruction scope equals complete removal and replacement of roadway to sub-base, while resurfacing scope equals 2 inch grinding and replacement of surface course only)                                                     
  • Repair of driveway sections and sidewalk impacted by construction  
During Stage II, the road will be closed to through traffic and driveways may be impacted 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. 

Stage III: Parkway restoration   
All parkway areas disturbed by construction activity will be restored. Construction is expected to be completed by November 16, 2018. 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 the Engineering Department and we will do our best to accommodate you.

SubscribeMoving forward, all future notifications will be provided using the Village email notification system. The Village will be sending out email notifications to those who have subscribed to receive them. Residents are able to subscribe to email notifications by visiting   

Please be advised that multiple email addresses may subscribe per household. Therefore, please be sure to add emails for all individuals that reside in or visit your property regularly.
