A summary of recently completed and forthcoming activities by location is as follows:
Main Street (Roosevelt to Fairview): Work is substantially complete. As a reminder, the Illinois Department of Transportation will be resurfacing the balance of the intersection of Main and Roosevelt this summer/fall as part of its Roosevelt Road resurfacing project.
Park Boulevard (Fairview to Crescent): Work is substantially complete with the exception of parkway lawn restoration which will be completed in the fall.
Park Boulevard (Roosevelt to Fairview): The Contractor has completed the planned sanitary sewer service replacement work. Installation of the new water main has commenced with the contractor starting work from the south leg of the Park and Fairview intersection and heading south towards Roosevelt Road.
Once the new water main has been installed, it will be pressure tested, chlorinated, and sampled in accordance with all IEPA requirements prior to putting it into service. The Contractor will then begin installing new water services to connect properties to the new water main.
Additional utility work to be completed on the east half of Park Boulevard includes replacement of a section of sanitary sewer main at the intersection of Fairview and Park, and installation of new storm sewer and drainage structures along the project corridor.
Once the utility work on the east half of the Park Boulevard is complete, the contractor will commence construction of the east half of the roadway. This work will involve construction of a new stone roadway sub-grade, installation of new curbs, replacement of driveway approaches and sidewalks, and paving of the roadway with asphalt to a level approximately 2-inches below the final roadway surface elevation. The final 2-inch surface layer of asphalt will be paved towards the end of the project along with the west half of the roadway.
Upon construction of the east half of the roadway as described, it will be used for northbound traffic. The Contractor will then commence construction of the utility improvements and roadway on the west half of Park Boulevard. This work should progress more quickly given the majority of the utility work is being completed on the east half of the roadway.
