Canterbury Drive – Highland Avenue to Suffield Drive
Highland Avenue - Suffield Drive to Hintz Road
Waverly Drive - Windsor Drive to Crabtree Drive
Yale Avenue - White Oak Street to the south

Construction is substantially complete. 

Parkway restoration is also included as part of this project.  Initial backfill has started.  The sod preparation and installation will be scheduled at a later date.

Davis Street – Bristol Lane to Beverly Lane
Beverly Lane – Davis Street to Lynden Lane
Fairview Street – Lincoln Lane to Dryden Place

All work in the Scarsdale neighborhood is substantially complete. Watering the sod and establishing the root system is included in the cost of the contract.  However, we do ask for resident cooperation so the sod will flourish.  Please do not cut your new sod until the root system has been established, approximately 14 days.  Please cut new sod at a high height of three inches for the season.  This will help your new sod grow and stay healthy.

Phase 1 street removal will be open to traffic once the paving operation is complete on Monday, July 8. 

Weather permitting, Arrow Road Construction anticipates street removal on PHASE 2 to begin on Tuesday, July 9 at approximately 7 a.m. on Campus Drive.

PHASE 2 – Businesses located from Ridge Avenue to Campus Court will have one entrance accessible at all times.  However, there will be difficulty getting down the street and there may be significant wait times.  We are requesting that only essential deliveries take place and employees park on Phase 1 or Ridge Avenue to minimize disruption to the work on Phase 2. See map. 

PHASE 1 – Businesses located from University Drive through Campus Court will have full access during the construction on Phase 2. However, please enter and exit Campus Drive from University Drive.  Additionally, please have all deliveries enter and exit through University Drive.  No through traffic will be allowed during construction of Phase 2. See map.

Huron Street – Verde Drive to Champlain Street

The Village of Arlington Heights completed construction layout and staking. Stakes are set three feet behind the proposed location of the curb and are used as an elevation guide during construction (they are not the location of the new back of curb). Please do not disturb the construction stakes until after the curb has been poured. In addition, the contractor will call in a J.U.L.I.E. locate to mark out the underground utilities, please leave the utility flags in place.  The concrete removal date has not been confirmed at this time.
