Construction Update - October 24, 2018
The Public Works team would like to update you regarding the status of the project. Given that the resurfacing work on Main Street from Roosevelt to Fairview and on Park Boulevard from Fairview to Crescent is substantially complete, this notice will focus on providing an update for the section of Park under reconstruction between Roosevelt and Fairview.
The underground contractor has completed the installation of all water services and is in the process of completing the final connections of the new water main to the existing water distribution system. The underground contractor is also wrapping up the storm sewer installation work including installation of structures that were in conflict with the old water main as well as installing underdrain pipes. It is currently anticipated that the underground utility work will be substantially complete by Saturday, October 27.
The general contractor is in the process of constructing the new aggregate base for the roadway. Concurrent with this operation, the contractor will commence construction of the new concrete curb/gutter and concrete driveway approaches.
At the time of this notice, the general contractor is wrapping up the roadway base construction effort on the south half of Park between Maiden and Roosevelt. This work has also advanced to the north with the aggregate base construction on the section of Park from Fairview to Maiden having commenced on Tuesday, October 23. It is anticipated that the contractor will start constructing the new curb and driveway approaches on the south end of Park on Friday, October 26. Construction of the new curb and driveway approaches on the northern end of Park between Maiden and Fairview is anticipated to commence on Thursday, November 1. A separate notice will be provided to those residences losing driveway access (Starting Around November 1). At that time, residents should anticipate to be out of their driveways for approximately 10-14 days while the new concrete curb and driveway approaches are constructed and curing to sufficient strength. During this same driveway closure period, the contractor will be paving the roadway to an elevation approximately 2-inches below the final surface elevation of the street, thereby allowing driveway access to be restored shortly thereafter. Weather permitting, it is currently anticipated that this work will be complete by approximately November 9 with driveways re-opened by November 12.
Weather permitting, it is currently anticipated that the final 2-inch thick asphalt surface layer of the roadway will be paved and line-striped by approximately November 16 with the roadway re-opened to two-way traffic at that time. Restoration of disturbed lawn areas will be completed as weather and the availability of sod permits.
We would like to take a moment to sincerely thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout the conduct of this project. We are looking forward to completing the final phases of work and delivering another quality infrastructure improvement project to the Village of Glen Ellyn.
