Construction Update – DCEO Street Lighting Project - Week of June 21, 2021 

Over the past week, Utility Dynamics has completed the installation of all of the light pole foundations along North Street.  Installation of cable and roadway crossings has begun along the south portion of Catalpa Avenue.

This coming week, the contractor will continue the installation of the Unit Duct cable and roadway crossings along Catalpa Avenue, Bryn Mawr and North Street. 

Temporary lane closures and delays may be experienced; however, they will only last for a short period of time during the construction operations.  

We ask for your full understanding and cooperation during construction.

If you have any questions, please contact our Public Works at (630) 773-2455 or the field engineer, Mr. Rob Borchering of Robinson Engineering, Ltd., at (708) 473-8068.

Construction Update – DCEO Street Lighting Project - Week of June 14, 2021 

Construction of the DCEO Street Lighting Project started last week.  Utility Dynamics has installed all of the light pole foundations along Catalpa Avenue and Bryn Mawr Avenue; and has completed approximately half of the light pole foundations along North Street this past week.

 

This coming week, the remainder of the light pole foundations are scheduled to be installed, along with pouring the electrical control cabinet pads on Bryn Mawr Avenue and North Street.  Unit Duct cable installation is also scheduled to start mid-week along Catalpa Avenue. The Unit Duct will be installed by directional drilling to minimize the disturbance of the parkways.  Unit Duct installation will then proceed on Bryn Mawr Avenue and North Street once the installation on Catalpa Avenue is complete.

 

Temporary lane closures and delays may be experienced; however, they will only last for a short period of time during the construction operations.  

 

We ask for your full understanding and cooperation during construction.

Project Summary 

 

The Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) has granted the village approximately $250,000 towards installation of street lighting along local school corridors.  The project is intended to improve safety along major school corridors by providing street lighting to create a safer environment for pedestrians traversing to school.

The project will include the installation of streetlights along Catalpa Avenue from Center Street to Bryn Mawr Avenue; along Bryn Mawr Avenue from Catalpa Avenue to Maple Ave; and along North Street from Walnut Street to Arlington Heights Road (see the project location exhibit).

The project will consist of installation of 33 LED streetlights on aluminum poles.  The design of the light pole locations was based on photometric calculations in accordance with Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) standards. These calculations determined the spacing of the poles. Other design considerations were avoidance of driveways, fire hydrants and other utility conflicts.  The contractor will utilize directional drilling for the electrical conduit installation and helical foundations to minimize the disturbance of the parkway areas.  Any disturbed parkway areas will be restored with topsoil and hydroseed. During the project, street parking will be prohibited in areas designated by signs or cones to allow the contractor access to the parkways as needed. Driveway access will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.  Please take extra care travelling through these areas and obey all construction signage and personnel.

If you have any questions, please contact our Public Works at (630) 773-2455 or the field engineer, Mr. Rob Borchering of Robinson Engineering, Ltd., at (708) 473-8068.

Project Completion: July 16, 2021


Construction Update  – 2021 Street Resurfacing Program - Week of June 21

Construction of the 2021 Street Resurfacing Program continues.  Curb and gutter have been installed along George Street and a portion of Bonnie Brae.  Concrete driveways along George Street have also been poured.

The contractor is scheduled to continue to pour the concrete curb the week of June 21st on Bonnie Brae, Shiller St, Maple Ave. Cherry St., and Lombard Rd.  A reminder that during this time, driveway access will be prohibited for a period of 5 to 7 days to allow the concrete to properly cure (harden) for location where curb crosses your driveway.  Access to newly poured driveway aprons will be allowed 5 days after the concrete is poured.

Parking will be prohibited along George Street during this time period.  Please note the Itasca Police Department has been notified that overnight parking will be allowed on the side streets from George Street during this period.

Street grinding and resurfacing is scheduled to start towards the end of the week (Thursday or Friday), weather pending.

Temporary lane closures and delays may be experienced; however, they will only last for a short period of time during the construction operations.  

We ask for your full understanding and cooperation during construction.

Project Summary

The Annual Street Resurfacing Program is intended to make systematic repairs to streets and curbs within the Village.  Streets are inspected and receive ratings which are used to identify deficient roadways for crack filling, patching, or resurfacing. Other information, such as forthcoming capital infrastructure projects is also considered so that we maintain the greatest longevity for our roadways.  

We are pleased to report that the Village of Itasca has awarded a contract to Brothers Asphalt Paving to perform roadway resurfacing on the street that you reside. The work includes grinding of the existing pavement, curb and gutter removal and replacement, pavement patching, and may also include storm sewer installation and driveway apron removal and replacement.

Due to the nature of the work, on-street parking in these areas will be temporarily prohibited on the list of streets below until construction is complete.  Pavement patching, pavement marking, and crack sealing will also be taking place Village-wide. Please take extra care travelling through these areas and obey all construction signage and personnel.

It is also possible that you may not have access to your driveway during working hours when construction activity occurs, however, in no case should your driveway be out of service overnight, except for when any new concrete driveway and/or curb is poured to allow proper time for the concrete to cure (Approximately 5 to 7 days). The contractor has been instructed to ensure that residents to be impacted by construction are notified in advance.
