Reconstruction Program

Last Updated: May 7, 2021

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:

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.

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

Lampignano & Son Construction has substantially completed all concrete work on the streets listed for Location 1.  The underground contractor is continuing to complete drainage structure adjustments and install pipe underdrain.  Once complete the curb gaps in these areas will be replaced.

J.A. Johnson Paving Company began pavement removal on Dunton Ave today, Friday, May 7 and will continue onto Vail Avenue later today.  Residents on Dunton Ave and Vail Ave should have their vehicles out of the driveway and off the street.  These driveways will not be accessible until the bottom layers of asphalt are 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. 

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 – May 7 and May 10
2. Earth Excavation and Stone subbase placement – May 10 (Dunton Ave) May 11 (Vail Ave)
3. Fine Grading of the stone subbase – 1-2 working days (per street)
4. Bottom layer(s) of asphalt pavement –1 to 2 working days – access to driveways restored (Tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 13)
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)

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.

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

Lampignano & Son will have a delayed start with concrete removal on S. Highland Ave today, May 7.  They must finish the removal at the location they are currently working before moving to S. Highland Ave.  We anticipate their arrival between 10am and 11am.  However, this timeframe is only an estimate.  If you choose to leave your car in the driveway, please stay attentive and move your car as soon as you see work activity.

Concrete curb removal, concrete driveway removal, and intermittent sidewalk removal on S Highland Ave will continue into Monday, May 10, 2021.  S. Highland Ave curb is tentatively scheduled to be replaced on Tuesday, May 11.  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.  If you have not already, please contact Briget Schwab at 847-368-5257 if you have a brick driveway or other decorative material.

Once concrete removal is complete on S Highland Avenue the contractor will move to Cedar St.  Cedar St residents will receive a notice along with parking passes as soon as a removal date is confirmed.

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.

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

Lampignano & Son Construction began sawcutting sidewalks and curbs in preparation for concrete removal.  Sawcutting will continue for several days.  Driveway access will not be affected at this time.

Construction layout and staking will also begin. 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.

Lampignano & Son will begin concrete removal on Princeton Ave and Noyes St after all concrete in Location 2 have been removed.  A concrete removal date for Location 3 has not been finalized.   Once this information has been confirmed, we will provide additional notification and parking passes.

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

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.
