Water Main Improvements Nearly Complete. Please Contact NICOR when Requested

Work Anticipated to be performed, July 17th to July 21st

The new water main installation and service replacements will be completed by the end of the next week. There are a few services yet to replace along with making the final disconnections / connections to the existing main at various intersections.  During the water main connections / disconnections, a limited number of residents will be without water. The Village of Glenview will notify each resident of the day and time which the water will be turned off prior to doing the work.

The contractor will then resume installing storm sewer along Raleigh Road during the middle of next week.

Nicor Gas has been replacing the gas main and services throughout the neighborhood. They will be contacting you to schedule a time to switch-over from your old service to the new service.  As work as progressed, more and more services are able to be switched from the old main to the new main.  This is becoming a critical point in the construction in which the old main needs to be removed to avoid conflicts with the new storm sewer, please contact Nicor as soon as possible after you are contacted to allow them to make the switch.  Your cooperation in this is greatly appreciated and will help in keeping the project moving forward without delays.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding while living in a construction area throughout the neighborhood.

Please be on the look-out for these notices from Nicor Gas.

As stated in previous posts, since this project is funded by the Village of Glenview, construction will not be delayed due to the current shut-down of IDOT projects.

Many of you have likely heard in the news about the potential for construction shut-downs associated without having a state budget passed by the legislature. This project is not affected by that potential shut-down since no State or Federal funds are being utilized.  This project is 100% funded by the Village of Glenview; therefore, work will continue without delay.

Also, Nicor Gas has been replacing the gas main and services throughout the neighborhood. They will be contacting you to schedule a time to switch-over from your old service to the new service. Please make contact with Nicor to schedule this switch-over as soon as possible once your notice is received.  Getting the old gas main abandoned as quickly as possible will help complete the project sooner. Please be on the look-out for these notices from Nicor Gas.

Thank you for all your patience as you are dealing with the inconveniences that come with living in a construction area.

As the work continues south, keeping travel lanes open along Raleigh Road between Drake Road and Hudson Road will not be possible.  Therefore, all the residents that live south of Drake Road will not have access during work hours (8 AM to 3 PM) on Wednesday, June 14th to Friday, June 16th.  Access will be allowed before and after working hours.  The Village of Glenview hand-delivered a letter to each resident affected by this closure.

Thanks again for all your patience during construction. We understand how difficult it is to live within a construction area dealing with the dust and travel delays.

As the work continues south, keeping travel lanes open along Raleigh Road between Drake Road and Hudson Road will be difficult.  It is anticipated Raleigh Road will be closed to traffic during the day from Drake Road to the south, including Hudson Road and York Road.  We will request vehicles be parked north of the construction area with access before and after working hours.  This will likely occur several times during construction due to utility construction, roadway reconstruction, concrete curb & gutter construction, and asphalt paving.  We understand the significant inconvenience this will cause, so we are working to minimize to the greatest extent possible. Additional information regarding these potential roadway closures will be forthcoming.
