Construction Update – 2023 Roadway & Infrastructure Improvements – Phase 2 - Week of March 20, 2023

The project will consist of installation of new storm sewer, replacement of a water main, reconstruction of roadways to include curb and gutter along streets that do not currently have curb and gutter and resurfacing of streets in the project area that already have curb and gutter. 

The Village has contracted with John Neri Construction Company to construct the project which is two distinct geographic areas. The west work area is bounded by Orchard Street/Walnut Street/North Street/Catalpa Avenue. The east work area is located on N. Elm Street from Bryn Mawr Avenue to North Street, North Street from Elm Street to Rush Street and Linden Street from Division Street to North Street.

This coming week, the contractor will begin to mobilize materials, equipment, traffic control warning signs and changeable message signs advising the motoring public of the start of construction. During the week of March 20th, the contractor will grind the roadway trenches for sanitary sewer installation on N. Elm Street between North Street and Bryn Mawr Avenue; and storm sewer along N. Maple Street between Center Street and North Street; and W. Center Street between Catalpa Avenue and Maple Street. The grinding is scheduled to begin at 9 am on Wednesday, March 22nd on N. Elm Street at the intersection of E. North Street. Roadway grinding, for the sewer installations, is expected to be complete on N. Elm Street, N. Maple Street and W. Center Street by Friday, March 24th.

Beginning Monday, March 27th, while Peacock School is not in session, the construction of a new sanitary sewer will begin at the intersection of North Street and Elm Street, proceeding north to Bryn Mawr Avenue. Concurrently, storm sewers will be installed on N. Maple Street beginning at Center Street and proceeding north to North Street and on W. Center Street from N. Maple Street to approximately 300 feet west of Willow Street. The sewer installations are scheduled to be completed in approximately three weeks. Work is expected to occur between 7 am and 4:30 pm. Through traffic will be detoured around the work areas. One lane of traffic will be open to local traffic with flaggers. We thank you for your patience. During this work expect the following:

  • All roads will be open to emergency vehicles
  • Access to driveways may be briefly interrupted
  • Workers will inform residents of driveway interruption prior to its occurrence
  • Temporary truck staging is expected on roadways and adjacent streets
