Reconstruction Program

Updated August 11, 2021 at 4 p.m. 

Village streets selected for reconstruction are at a stage of deterioration where the curb and gutter is no longer functioning properly, there is failure of the street's subbase and the main part of the street is in poor condition. On April 5, 2021, the Village Board awarded a contract for $3,990,700.00 to J.A. Johnson Paving Company for the 2021 MFT Street Reconstruction Program. This work is funded by the Village’s share of the State’s Motor Fuel Taxes (MFT) and the REBUILD Illinois Bond Grant Funds. The Project Engineer for the Street Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Program is Briget Schwab. The following streets are included in this year’s program:

 

Street  From  To
DUNTON AVE  CYPRESS ST  S SIDE MAGNOLIA ST
HIGHLAND AVE  N SIDE CYPRESS ST  185'S SIDE MAGNOLIA ST
MAGNOLIA ST  E SIDE HIGHLAND AVE  W SIDE EVERGREEN AVE
VAIL AVE  CYPRESS ST  S SIDE MAGNOLIA ST
CEDAR ST  E SIDE RIDGE AVE  W SIDE HIGHLAND AVE
HIGHLAND AVE  S SIDE CEDAR ST  N SIDE PICKWICK RD
RIDGE AVE  S SIDE CEDAR ST  S SIDE WHITE OAK ST
WALNUT AVE  N SIDE CEDAR ST  S SIDE WHITE OAK ST
HIGHLAND CT  W SIDE LILLIAN AVE  COURT
HIGHLAND AVE  N SIDE LILLIAN AVE  S SIDE PALATINE RD
VAIL AVE  N SIDE LILLIAN AVE  CUL-DE-SAC
FLEMING DR  W SIDE WILSHIRE LN  W SIDE WILSHIRE LN
KINGSBURY CT  S SIDE KINGSBURY DR  CUL-DE-SAC
KINGSBURY DR  CUL-DE-SAC  15'E SIDE RIDGE AVE
NOYES ST  E SIDE YALE AVE  W SIDE PRINCETON AVE
PRINCETON AVE  W SIDE KENNICOTT AVE  S SIDE WHITE OAK ST


Construction on each street is expected to take approximately 10 to 12 weeks to complete from start to finish. However, the most disruptive portion of the work will last approximately 4 to 6 weeks. This overall time frame includes days that work may not be taking place. For example, concrete has to cure for a few days and during the curing time you may not see any work taking place on your street.  The estimated substantial completion date for the 2021 Street Reconstruction program for all streets is August 27, 2021. However, parkway restoration will not take place until September or October.

LOCATION 4
Highland Court – Highland Ave to Lilian Ave
Highland Avenue – Lillian Ave to Palatine Frontage Rd
Vail Avenue – Lillian Ave to North Cul-de-sac

Concrete work is substantially complete for all streets in Location 4.  
J.A. Johnson Paving began the street removal stage of construction in the afternoon of Wednesday, August 4 in Location 4.  Street removal is complete on N Vail and N Highland from Lillian Lane to the Palatine Frontage Rd and both streets have a stone subbase.  Johnson Paving will work on fine grading the stone base and anticipates paving the bottom layers by Friday, August 13.  

Street removal on N Highland Ave cul-de-sac located at the west end of Lillian Ln began on Tuesday, August 10 afternoon.   Weather permitting, stone placement is scheduled to be complete by Thursday, August 12. Paving is still tentatively scheduled for Friday, August 13.

LOCATION 5
Kingsbury Drive – West Cul-de-sac to Ridge Ave
Kingsbury Court – South Cul-de-sac to Kingsbury Dr

Lampignano completed concrete removal on Friday, August 6 and poured majority of the curb on Saturday, August 7.  While they did experience weather delays on Monday, August 9 they are still on schedule to complete all concrete flatwork by the end of the day Wednesday, August 11.

Weather permitting, J.A. Johnson Paving Company anticipates asphalt pavement removal to begin on Thursday, August 12 at approximately 8:00 a.m. The removal crew is scheduled to start the morning at a different location and will move to Kingsbury Court after work is complete at their starting location.  Therefore, the start time is estimated and may be later than anticipated.  The contractor will start on Kingsbury Court.  Once the asphalt is removed on Kingsbury Court they will begin asphalt removal on Kingsbury Dr starting in the west cul-de-sac and working to the east towards Ridge Ave.  

Residents on Kingsbury Court and Kingsbury Drive, please have all cars out of the driveway and off the street no later than 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 12, as driveways will not be accessible once the asphalt pavement is removed.  Driveway access will not be restored until the second lift of asphalt is placed. 

Parking within construction limits is not allowed Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.   However, residents may park within construction limits overnight and on days when there is no construction taking place. The street will be down to a stone subbase, so please drive slowly to minimize dust and stones kicking up.

For your convenience, we have provided a general sequence of construction activities for this phase of construction.  This schedule is an estimate and subject to change.

1. Pavement Removal – 2-2 1/2 working days 
2. Earth Excavation and Stone subbase placement – 3 to 3 1/2 working days 
3. Fine Grading of the stone subbase –2 to 3 working days 
4. Bottom layer(s) of asphalt pavement –1 to 2 working days – access to driveways restored (Tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 23)
5. Prime coat (fresh oil) and final lift of asphalt placement – 1 day (this will likely be postponed until all other streets in the area have been completed)

LOCATION 6
Fleming Drive – Wilshire Ln to Wilshire Ln

Construction layout and staking has been partially completed.  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.

Concrete removal is tentatively scheduled to begin on Monday, August 16.  Residents will receive hand delivered notification with further details once the date has been confirmed by the contractor.  With the inclement weather we are experiencing this week, the removal date may need to be pushed up.
As a reminder, please mark the location of or move (recommended if within three feet of the back of curb or sidewalk marked for removal) all sprinkler systems, dog fences, or landscaping that may be impacted during construction.   The contractor will not be held responsible for any damage to property located within the Village right-of-way.

Overview of the 2021 Resurfacing Program
Updated August 18, 2021 @ 1:00 PM


Village streets selected for the resurfacing program are in the beginning stages of deterioration. This maintenance program, which involves more streets than Rehabilitation & Reconstruction, is intended to extend the life of the street. Intermittent curb and sidewalk are removed and replaced and the street is milled and resurfaced. This year's program includes 5 miles of asphalt pavement which will performed by Arrow Road Construction per a bid awarded by the Village Board on April 19, 2021 for $2.2 million. The Project Engineer for the Street Resurfacing Program is Aldair Vargas.

August 18, 2021 Update:
“ All the streets north of Northwest Highway (Route 14) have been substantially completed. The final surface layer for Harvard Ave, Forrest Ave, and Donald Ave will be completed on Wednesday, August 18. Final parkway restoration will be completed in the fall. Concrete removal and replacement began on Dunton Ave (Sigwalt St to South Dead End) on August 13. The east side of the street will be completed first before any concrete is removed on the west side. A driveway access notice will be provided to all residents on the west side of the street that will have their driveway access disturbed at least 24-48 hours before concrete removal is set to begin. The construction on Evergreen Ave is tentatively schedule to begin on Monday, August 30.”
