Yale Avenue – White Oak Street to the South

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 J.U.L.I.E. locate to mark out the underground utilities, please leave the utility flags in place.   

The new water main installation was completed on April 24, 2019.
  The pressure test and chlorination of the new water main was rescheduled for Wednesday, May 8.  The results were received on Monday, May 13 and the new water main was approved.  

Connecting residential water service lines to the main began on Wednesday, May 15.
  Brief water shut-offs will be required.  The water service interruption for these service connections will only last 15-30 minutes per home.  DeVinci Construction will knock on the door to notify residents prior to shutting of the water.  As of Thursday, May 23, six residential connections still need to be completed which requires approximately one to two more working days.  

After all residential service connections are made, DeVinci Construction will make the final connection to the existing water main on Noyes Street.
  This work is expected to take approximately one working day and momentary water shut-offs will be required.  The Village will provide hand delivered notices before this shut-offs occur.  

Once the water main is completed, the street reconstruction activities will begin.
  In preparation of the street reconstruction portion of the project, Lampignano and Son Construction will begin sawcutting the sidewalk on Friday, May 24.  The tentative start date for concrete removal is Wednesday, May 29.  Another notification with detailed information will be passed out prior to this work starting.
