The Village of Arlington Heights, in Cook County, in conjunction with the State of Illinois, has applied for Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the “Race & Chicago Avenue Storm Water Detention” project.

The objective of HMA programs is to fund mitigation measures that reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future hazard events or disasters. The “Race & Chicago Avenue Storm Water Detention” project will construct underground storm water detention facilities along Jo Lane between Chicago Avenue and Illinois Avenue, and along Race Avenue north of Oakton Street near Race Court. The existing storm sewer from the Race Avenue location to the existing sewer on Oakton Street will be upsized. Construction will occur within the public street right-of-way and include the installation of 475-ft of 8’x4’ box culverts, 300-ft of 36” storm sewer, pavement and curb removal and replacement, relocation of water mains and/or house water service lines, relocation of sanitary sewer mains and/or house sanitary service lines, sidewalk removal and replacement to ADA standards, restoration and associated ancillary work. Construction is scheduled for 2024.

Under the National Environmental Policy Act, EO 11988 and EO 11990, public notice is required of any federal actions that may affect floodplains or wetlands. Under the National Historic Preservation Act, public notice is also required for some projects which have the potential to affect historic properties. All necessary permits and approvals will be obtained prior to construction and completion of the project. Public participation is encouraged. Those interested are invited to comment within 30 days by e-mail to [email protected] or by mail to: Duane Castaldi, Regional Environmental Officer
