FAQs

 
Why is this project necessary?
The Village has experienced significant break history along Roosevelt Road.

How does this benefit the Village?
This project will reduce future water main breaks, provide more than a 50-year life span of the existing water main and provide greater safety for Village personnel during future maintenance.
 
Will the road be closed?
Northbound Finley north of Roosevelt will be closed while the contractor works at the intersection of Roosevelt and Finley. The westbound right turn lane for Roosevelt at Main will be closed when the contractor is working at that intersection. Westbound traffic will be intermittently be reduced to one lane throughout the project.

Will there be detours?
There will be detours for the road closures at Main and Finley described above. Detour maps will be available prior to the commencement of the construction for the project.

Will my driveway be inaccessible?
All driveways will remain open for the most part. The only time driveways will be affected is during construction of a by-pass main, which will be a short time period, generally no more than a day. Notice will be given prior to any scheduled driveway closures.

Will my water service be affected?
Water service will be interrupted for a very short period when the contractor installs a by-pass water main system for the project. Notice will be given prior to any scheduled water service interruption.

9/23/16: Beginning the week of 9/26, the contractor will start lining the existing water main at Main and working their way east. At this time all customers between Main and Fairfield are connected to the by-pass main. The westbound right lane of Roosevelt between Finley and Main is anticipated to re-open next Friday, 9/30. By October 2nd, all customers along Roosevelt between Finley and Main are expected to be reconnected to the newly lined main.     


9/9/16:

Approximately 2,000 feet of watermain has been cleaned and lined, new fire hydrants are being installed, and each water valve along Roosevelt Road is being replaced. Several locations of watermain are being replaced due to such poor condition that the watermain could not be lined. Half of the businesses along Roosevelt Road, between Finley Road and Main Street, are now connected to the newly lined watermain. Several businesses now have an increase in their water pressure. The installation of the temporary by-pass watermain has been completed and businesses between Main Street and Fairfield Avenue will begin to be connected over the next couple weeks. 

We would like to remind motorists that no right turn is allowed on Main Street from westbound Roosevelt Road. The Lombard Police Department is aware of this restricted movement and will be ticketing violators. Please also be aware of the closed right lane of Main Street south of Roosevelt Road. The construction workers are doing their best to get the work within the Main Street intersection completed as soon as possible. 

The right lane closure of Roosevelt Road remains in place on westbound Roosevelt Road from Main Street to Finley Road. This closure is anticipated to be removed within the next three weeks. Also, during daytime hours, daily outside lane closures will be used between Fairfield Avenue and Main Street to complete the excavation of pits.


 

8/26/16: Northbound Finley is open. Beginning Tuesday, 8/30, westbound traffic on Roosevelt Road will not be permitted to turn right on Main Street due to a lane closure on Main Street.


8/19/2016: Rehabilitation of Lombard’s existing watermain system along Roosevelt Road is in full swing.  Over 1,200 feet of watermain has been cleaned and lined, new fire hydrants are being installed, and each water valve along Roosevelt Road is being replaced. All businesses along Roosevelt Road, between Finley Road and Main Street, are now connected to the temporary by-pass watermain while lining activities continue. Over the next few weeks, excavation of access pits and installation of the temporary by-pass watermain will be proceeding for Phase II (Main Street to Fairfield Avenue).
 
Great news…
northbound Finley Road is scheduled to re-open Monday, August 22. The right lane closure will remain in place on westbound Roosevelt Road from Main Street to Finley Road. Also, during daytime hours, daily outside lane closures may be used between Fairfield Avenue and Main Street.
