Pavement smoothing work on Deerfield Road east of the Metra underpass will result in rolling lane closures this week.
The grinding machines will file down bumps on the new concrete roadway in the Village of Deerfield to ensure a smoother product. Once completed, the contractor will then install the permanent pavement striping. Both operations will require the use of lane closures throughout most of the week.
The project is now 98 percent complete. After this week's operations the only remaining work will include minor parkway restoration and work on the underside of the bridges in Highland Park.
