2017 Street Improvement Project 

As part of the Village’s Capital Improvement Program, the 2017 Street Improvement Program targets specific streets within the Village for improvements. The program is part of larger overall plans which track the aging and wear of streets in neighborhoods throughout the Village. Further, it suggests a multi-year schedule for updates and improvements based on inspection and criteria - such as when and how the streets were originally constructed. In addition, and where appropriate, curb and storm sewer inlets are improved so as to improve drainage, which in and of itself, can extend the service life of a given street.

If you wish to receive periodic updates about the project to your email please sign up here.

If you have any questions, or would like more information regarding the program, you may contact Kyle Johnson at the Village’s Engineering Division at 847-459-2523 on weekdays between 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM.  Sarah Ronan of Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc (GHA) will be your first point of contact as she has been hired by the Village to handle the day-to-day operations and inspection of the project.  She can be reached at 847-946-5808 or sronan@gha-engineers.com.

  • the method facilitates an overall cleanliness of the project, as opposed to the excavation of entire road section,
  • substantial economic savings can be realized,
  • it can be applied to pipeline materials such as cast iron, steel or ductile iron,
  • the pipeline can be rehabilitated while in place,
  • the rehabilitated areas are supplied with water and fire protection via a temporary by-pass system with a minimal disruption of water service to residents,
  • a minimal disruption of services and traffic because small excavation pits are used to access the pipe,
  • individual water services do not have to be excavated,
  • future deterioration of road beds and asphalt due to trenching are minimized.

Final_Spec_Book_3.14.17
All sections of roadway included in this project will be resurfaced, some may be completely reconstructed (refer to the map above).  Resurfacing means that either the top few inches or asphalt or all the asphalt will be removed and replaced.  Reconstruction means the base of the road, along with the surface, will be replaced.  Which type of process your street will be depends on the overall thickness of asphalt your street is made of.  During the resurfacing process your access will not be restricted but may be delayed as the asphalt is either removed or replaced in front of your home.  On the days work is taking place please plan for slowed travel to and from your home.

For all sections, curb, sidewalk and apron repairs will only be completed as needed.  Not all curbs, sidewalks or aprons will be replaced. Aprons will only be replaced/repaired in accordance with Village Code limits.   If the curb in front of your home warrants removal and replacement the contractor will notify you directly, in writing, about the disruption to your access and provide instructions on where you can park in the meantime.  Grass restoration will be the last step in the process and conclude the project.
