Project Completed

This past week, the final lift of asphalt pavement was installed along Debra Lane, Sandy Lane, and sections of Mary Kay Lane. This completes the major construction items for the project!!! There are a few minor repairs and items to complete.

This will be last blog post for the project. We hope you found the updates informative and useful. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Robert Steele, project manager, at 847-904-4423 or rsteele@glenview.il.us

A resident survey will be sent out in the next few weeks for your comments and reaction to the entire construction process. Please take the time to fill out the survey and return to the Village, we review each survey in an attempt to make the process better each year.

We do understand the great inconveniences you experienced throughout the spring and summer living in a construction zone, for that we did appreciate all your patience and understanding.

Sod Restoration Completed

This past week, the landscape contractor completed final grading and installation of topsoil. The contractor also completed the sod restoration along the project site. The contractor will continue to water the newly installed sod until it takes root and a healthy stand of grass is established.

This week, we anticipate work in preparation for the final layer of asphalt pavement to be completed. Work will include cleaning the roadway, milling joints, and pavement milling along Mary Kay Lane.

The final lift of asphalt pavement is currently scheduled for the first part of the week of July 27th

Thanks again for all your patience during the construction.

Sod Restoration Scheduled Week of July 13th

As you can tell by the reduced activity on-site, the major construction items are now completed. Last week the contractor performed some miscellaneous landscape grading, site clean-up, and various testing and inspections.

Sod restoration is currently anticipated to begin on late this week or early this week of July 13th.

Once all the work is completed, a final walk-through of the project will be completed to determine any items that need repair or additional work to be completed. Once all work is completed, inspections performed, and tests passed; the final lift of asphalt pavement will be installed. We are currently anticipating the final lift of asphalt pavement will be installed by July 24th.

The rain events throughout the week caused the scheduled concrete work to be pushed back and begin this Monday, June 22nd.

We anticipate access will be allowed prior to the July 4th Holiday, once the concrete work is completed and given time to cure as well as having the first 2 layers of asphalt pavement installed.

The Village understands the significant inconvenience that is caused to residents while they are not allowed to access their driveways and garages. The Village is committed to ensuring that access is restored as quickly as possible, but please understand all work is weather dependent. Should additional delays be encountered, residents will be notified with an updated schedule.

Thank you again for all your patience and understanding during the upcoming concrete construction.

Roadway Reconstruction On-Going. Concrete Curb & Gutter Next Week.

Work Completed Last Week:
·         Removal of existing concrete cub & gutter, sidewalks, and driveways
·         Installed temporary access ramps at driveways
·         Roadway excavation
·         Installation of aggregate base course
·         Nicor Gas continued with main line and service replacements 

Work Anticipated This Week:
DiMeo Brothers (Roadway Reconstruction)
·         Roadway excavation
·         Installation of aggregate base course
·         Grading in preparation for concrete curb & gutter.
·         Preparation work prior to concrete curb & gutter
·         Pouring of concrete curb & gutter.
 
Nicor Gas (Gas Main and Service Replacement)
·         Continuation of main line and service replacements.

The roadway excavation portion of the project is currently under way. During this phase, getting around the neighborhood will be difficult due to the number of trucks required and construction operations on-going. During the concrete curb & gutter, driveway, and sidewalk installations, access to driveways will be restricted to allow for the concrete to be poured, allow sufficient curing time, and asphalt pavement to be installed. We anticipate residents will be out of their driveways for approximately 2 weeks once the concrete work begins to having the roadway paved with access restored. Exact timing is yet to be determined, but will likely begin the middle of next week. Residents will be notified of exact timing and parking instructions.

The contractor is also anticipated to work on Saturday, June 13th starting at 8:00 AM

Thank you again for all your patience and understanding during construction.
