2022 Street Rehabilitation Construction Notice & Invitation to Public Meeting

Posted on April 18, 2022 at 12:22 PM by John Guccione

The purpose of this correspondence is to inform you of the upcoming street rehabilitation construction project on or near your street.  This notice also serves as an invitation to the project-related public meeting that will be held at Village Hall, 850 Waukegan Road (2nd Floor) on Wednesday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m.  For those who are unable to attend, the meeting will be recorded and posted on the Village website for viewing at your convenience.

The project schedule is currently being finalized and will be presented at the public meeting. However, locations near schools will be coordinated to minimize impacts.

This year’s project locations and scope of work per location is provided below:  (PRINTABLE MAP )

While the scope of work varies per location, the following description of work describes a snapshot of what to expect during this year’s construction season. 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. Most of the construction will be performed in the roadway area except for the replacement of storm sewer structures and/or fire hydrants within the parkway area. If you have existing items 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 workWork will be performed as follows:  

 •           Removal and replacement of deteriorated curbs and sidewalks, and/or sidewalks to be expanded.

•           Removal of roadway pavement and placement of new bituminous asphalt pavement (Note: Reconstruction requires complete removal and replacement of the roadway, down to sub-base, while resurfacing requires the removal and replacement of only the top 2-4 inches of pavement.)                                                     

•           Repair of driveway 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 October 14, 2022. 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.

 Moving 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 can subscribe to email notifications by visiting www.deerfield.il.us.   

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

 The Village appreciates your effort in helping to complete this improvement. If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction because of a disability, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the 2022 Street Rehabilitation Project.

 Please remember to drive and walk carefully through the construction zone.
