Find updates here on the status of two major projects - Street Rehabilitation & Reconstruction as well as Resurfacing and Sidewalk construction.  Residents living on streets that are part of the Street Rehabilitation & Reconstruction program (see chart below) should sign-up to receive emails about the work being done on their street.

Rehabilitation & Reconstruction
The Village's Engineering Division oversees the street rehabilitation, reconstruction, resurfacing and sidewalk construction projects. 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.  The Project Engineer for the Street Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Program is Briget Schwab.   If you live on a street affected by this program, please sign-up to receive email updates about the work being done on your street.

Updated on May 27, 2020. 

Greenbrier Court – Shenandoah Drive to Cul-de-Sac
Weather permitting, Suburban Concrete anticipates the removal of concrete curb, concrete driveways and intermittent sidewalk to begin on Thursday, May 28. The curb is tentatively scheduled to be replaced on Friday, May 29. Concrete driveways and sidewalks will be replaced once the curb has been poured. Asphalt driveways will also be removed and replaced as part of the construction project, but will be completed at a later date. Please contact Briget Schwab at 847-368-5257 if you have a brick driveway or other decorative material.

Removal is expected to start on Greenbrier Court at approximately 7 AM. Please have your vehicles out of the driveway and off the street by 7 AM. Thursday. Driveways will not be accessible beginning Thursday, May 28. Please park on any other Village street that is not under construction.

Parking within construction limits is not allowed Monday through Friday between 7 AM and 5 PM; however, residents may park within construction limits overnight and on days when there is no construction taking place.

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.  


Brighton Place (include both courts) – Briar Street to Valley Lane
Suburban Concrete will begin sawcutting sidewalks and curbs in preparation for concrete removal. Sawcutting will begin Wednesday, May 27 at 7 AM on Greenbrier Court. Once complete on Greenbrier Court, the contractor will move to Brighton Place then Stratford.

Construction layout and staking will also begin this week. Stakes will be 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.

Driveway access will not be affected at this time.

Suburban Concrete is tentatively scheduled to begin removing concrete on the west side of Brighton Place and west Brighton Court the week of June 1st. Removal on Brighton Place will be completed one side at a time. A construction notice with additional information will be distributed to all residents before any removal begins.

Resurfacing

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 project is currently out for bid. The Project Engineer for the Street Resurfacing Program is Nanci Julius.
