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

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.

Thank you to all the residents that were without access to their driveways for approximately 1.5 weeks. Your patience and understanding was greatly appreciated. Now that the concrete work and first 2 layers of asphalt pavement are completed, we do not anticipate any further driveway restrictions.

Currently, the contractor is working on the landscape restoration along the entire project site. Once this work is completed, the contractor will begin performing the final inspections and testing prior to finalizing the project. Once all testing and inspections are completed and approved, the final lift of asphalt pavement will be installed. We currently do not have a schedule for this work, but we will provide you an update as the timing is finalized.

Have a safe and happy July 4th Holiday.
