Reconstruction Program

Updated July 23, 2021 @ 2:30PM

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

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 1
Dunton Avenue – Cypress St to Magnolia St
Vail Avenue – Cypress St to Magnolia St
Highland Avenue – Cypress St to Magnolia St
Magnolia Street – Highland Ave to Evergreen Ave

All work in this location is substantially complete. The final surface was placed on Tuesday, May 25.  Final parkway restoration will be completed in the fall.

LOCATION 2 
Highland Avenue – Pickwick Rd to White Oak St
Cedar Street – Ridge Ave to Highland Ave
Ridge Avenue – Cedar St to White Oak St
Walnut Avenue – Cedar St to White Oak St

All work in this location is substantially complete.  The final surface was placed on Friday, July 2.  Final parkway restoration will be completed in the fall.


LOCATION 3
Princeton Avenue – Kennicott Ave to White Oak St
Noyes Street – Yale Ave to Princeton Ave

Johnson Paving completed all earth excavation and roughly placed the stone subbase throughout Princeton and Noyes St. The contractor is scheduled to complete the fine grading of the stone subbase on Friday, July 23. The Village will complete the final inspection of the stone subbase on Friday, July 23. In anticipation of the inspection passing and nice weather forecast, Johnson Paving is set up to pave on Monday, July 26.

Weather permitting, the paving operation is set to begin at 7am Monday, July 26 and Johnson Paving anticipates getting the entire first lift of asphalt in and will start the second lift. In the event they aren't able finish the second lift, they will ramp the remaining driveways in so access will be restored to all driveways on Monday, July 26. Residents will be able to use driveways once the paving operation is complete. 

There are some miscellaneous concrete curb repairs that need to take place before the remaining second lift (if needed) and final surface can be placed. We are working to get the concrete subcontractor back to this area as soon as possible and are hopeful that they are able to get in the week of July 26. Once miscellaneous concrete curb repairs are complete, Johnson Paving will schedule the remaining paving work. Another notice will be provided before the prime coat, remaining second lift (if needed), and final surface is placed.

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 removal is scheduled to be complete by the end of day July 23.  Weather permitting, the curb is scheduled to be replaced on Saturday, July 24th.  Concrete driveways and sidewalks will be replaced once the curb has been poured.  Driveways will be closed for at least 3 days after the concrete has been poured to allow for concrete curing time.  Asphalt driveways will also be removed and replaced as part of the construction project, but will be completed at a later date.  

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.

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

Construction layout and staking has been 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.

Drainage structure repairs and improvements have been completed.  Concrete removal will tentatively begin in early August.  Once a date has been confirmed by the contractor, residents will receive hand delivered notification with further details.

Overview of the 2021 Resurfacing Program
Updated May 27, 2021 @ 11:00 AM


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.

Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Project
Updated May 27, 2021 @ 11:00 AM

Starting on June 1, weather permitting, all Village streets that were resurfaced in 2020 will have a Reclamite Maltene Based Rejuvenating Agent applied to them, which is designed to extend the life of pavement by sealing the roadway from the elements. This pavement rejuvenation process will be handled by Corrective Asphalt Materials (CAM), which has been contracted by the Village for this process. To view the map of the affected streets, please click here. The work should take approximately one week to complete all streets.  

The process involves a few hours of work, depending on the weather. During that time the street must be free of parked vehicles to complete the maintenance work. The process includes having the street swept, spraying the liquid Reclamite on the pavement one lane at a time, and then applying limestone screenings.  Once the first lane has cured, CAM will then apply the Reclamite to the other lane.

You will be able  to  exit  your  driveway and drive through the work area. Please note that driving onto a driveway  before the curing process is complete may temporarily stain sidewalk, concrete, and brick  driveways. To avoid this, you may want to park on an adjacent street until the product has cured.

Construction signs will also be posted at the limits of each street stating "Fresh Oil Loose Gravel" prior to the work taking place. For more information on CAM or the Reclamite process, please visit their website, Corrective Asphalt Materials. You can also contact the Engineering Division at 847.368.5250 to speak with the Project Engineer, Aldair Vargas.
