Nicor Gas Main and Service Replacement Delayed. Roadway Reconstruction to Begin June 8th.

It was initially scheduled to have Nicor gas replace the existing gas main and services to each home prior to starting the roadway reconstruction phase of the project. Due to numerous delays, lack of coordination and communication, and without a definitive schedule from Nicor to begin the work, the Village has decided to move forward with the roadway reconstruction phase of the project. Nicor gas will be forced to complete their work following the roadway reconstruction and make any necessary restorations due to damage they cause.

The roadway reconstruction is currently scheduled to begin the week of June 8th with excavation and installation of aggregate base course.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience the delays resulting from Nicor’s poor management has caused. If we knew the gas main and service replacement would be delayed this much, we would have started the roadway reconstruction immediately following the completion of the underground utility construction.
