The 1st phase of concrete curb & gutter and asphalt pavement installation has been completed.  This is a significant project milestone for that area because the amount of dust is greatly reduced and a smooth driving surface is provided.

The 2nd phase of concrete curb & gutter and asphalt pavement will begin next week along Raleigh Road from York Road to approximately 200 feet north of Drake Road. We request all residents in this area have their vehicles removed from their driveways and garages by Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00 AM. Access is anticipated to be restored by Friday, September 29th.  All residents affected have received prior notification from the Village of Glenview. At this time, residents are allowed to parking along York Road and Hudson Road where the asphalt pavement was previously installed.

During this 2nd Phase the contractor will be working extensively along Raleigh Road between Hudson Road and Drake Road. This area becomes difficult to travel along as construction operations are on-going.  We ask that you are patient as you travel through the area.  As in the past, we may request you park your vehicles along Drake Road if you need access during working hours. Additional information will be provided should this request be made.

Roadway excavation and base course installation has been completed along Raleigh Road.  The final roadway to be completed is Baffin Road. It is anticipated the remaining portion of Baffin Road will be completed by the end of next week.

Thanks again to the residents along Phase 1 as you dealt with the significant inconvenience of not having driveway access for approximately 2 weeks.  Thank you in advance for those residents along Phase 2 that will be without driveway access starting on Tuesday, September 19th. Due to the patience and understanding of all the residents, the project is moving along as quickly as possible.

The underground utility improvements (sanitary sewer, water main, and storm sewer) of the project are nearly completed. It is anticipated the work will be completed by the end of this week. There are likely some minor adjustments and work to be completed following this week, but the major construction of these items will be completed.

The contractor is beginning the roadway improvements along Hudson Road and York Road this week. The roadway improvements will include removing the existing asphalt pavement, installing new gravel base materials, repair unstable areas of the existing materials under the roadway, new concrete curb & gutter, and new asphalt pavement. Likely, the roadway excavation and aggregate base course installation will be performed this week, with concrete curb & gutter performed in the coming weeks.

Additional conflicts with utility company underground cables were identified this week. The Village has been in contact with these companies and requesting the cables be relocated and quickly as possible to prevent further delays in the project.

Storm Sewer Installation Continues

Work Performed, July 24th to July 28th 
·         Continued with storm sewer installation along Raleigh Road from Drake Road north to Glenview Road
·         Continued with storm sewer installation along Raleigh Road from Drake Road to the south
·         Started storm sewer installation along Baffin Road
·         Nicor Gas has completed making all the connections between the new gas main and each residence.

Work Anticipated to be performed, July 31st to August 4th 
·         Continue with storm sewer installation along Raleigh Road, Baffin Road, and Drake Road
·         Grind-in-place the existing pavement along York Road, Hudson Road, and Raleigh Road south of Hudson Road
·         Nicor to complete abandonments of existing gas main and services.

The contractor has continued installing storm sewer along Raleigh Road. Due to several conflicts within existing utility companies (ComEd, AT&T, and WOW!), the contractor will be moving around to different areas of the jobsite until the utilities in conflict are relocated.  It is anticipated the storm sewer will be completed by the 2nd week of August.

Once the storm sewer along Raleigh is completed, the contractor will begin roadway improvements on the south half of the project along Hudson Road and York Road. The first step will be to grind-in-place the existing pavement in the area where it was not previously completed. As roadway construction and excavation begins, it will be increasingly more difficult to travel along the roadways because the entire roadway width will be under construction. The Village will provide notices regarding anticipated timeframes for work along each section of roadway.

The roadway improvements will include removing the existing asphalt pavement, installing new gravel base materials, repair unstable areas of the existing materials under the roadway, new concrete curb & gutter, and new asphalt pavement.

Thanks again for all your understanding as construction continues.
