Posted on May 8, 2018 at 8:33 AM by John Guccione

Public Meeting Reminder
The Village will host a project-related public meeting 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.

Somerset Ave & Osterman Ave

Removal of curb will begin at the Osterman and Somerset locations this week with a concrete pour planned on the southern portion of these locations this Thursday. This work will result in residents not having access to their driveway until concrete cures. Residents of this location have been notified.

Oxford Road

Underground utility repairs have begun on Oxford Ave. This work may result in road closures of small portions of Oxford Rd.  Local traffic will be diverted to adjacent local roads. Access will be granted to those who reside within the limits and to emergency vehicles. 

Bristol Estates Subdivision, Bristol Drive, Kenmore Ave & Central Ave
Grinding of the existing surface course has been completed on Kenmore and Central Ave locations. The contractor is working to complete grinding operations in the Bristol Estates subdivision and on Bristol Drive. Paving of asphalt leveling course will begin Wednesday (weather permitting) on Central and Kenmore, with paving to follow in the Bristol Estates subdivision and on Bristol Drive. Surface course paving will follow within the next 2-3 week after the level binder installation.

Prior to the paving operations, the contractor is required to install fresh oil on the streets. This oil allows for a better bond to the existing roadway and lengthens the service life of the new pavement. Residents should be advised to drive slowly during this time so as not to get any oil on their vehicles. The contractor will install ‘FRESH OIL’ signs during this time


Both the pavement removal and paving operations will include heavy truck traffic and may present minor access delays to residential driveways and to through traffic. During this time and if possible, please avoid the construction operations and utilize the side roads. All driveways will be accessible at the completion of the work day.

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.
