Will the Village proceed with the project given the Coronavirus pandemic?  Based upon the Executive Order issued by Governor Pritzker construction activity has been determined an essential service.  At this time, the Village has no plans to stop or suspend construction because of this health crisis. Workers who support the construction of critical or strategic infrastructure are considered essential by the Department of Homeland Security and have a special responsibility to maintain a normal work schedule. With our partners in industry, we will strive to keep this construction season on schedule. The Village will continue to ensure that employees and contractors use proper personal protective equipment and guidelines issued by the CDC and IDPH.

Why is this project necessary? The current infrastructure is reaching the end of its service life and needs to be brought up to current Village standards.

How does this benefit the Village? The benefits of the project will be an improved and more resilient water distribution and sewer collection network, economical LED lighting, and the pavement section being brought up to current Village standards.

Will this impact traffic and parking? 
There may be periods of time that residents will not be able to access their driveways due to underground utility construction, roadway excavation, curb and gutter installation, and roadway paving.  Overnight parking passes will be distributed prior to resident being out of their driveways overnight or for extended periods of time.

Construction Updates

5/12/20 - There will be minimal construction the remainder of this week as the new water main is being tested.  The contractor anticipates completing the rest of the storm sewer (west of Magnolia Court) next week.  After that, the water services will be transferred to the new water main.  Be aware of door hangers that will be provided a day before the water service interruption while transferring from the old to the new water main.

4/17/20 - On Monday, April 20th, starting at 9:00 AM residents along Cherry Lane will experience a water service disruption related to water main work for the project. A reminder to all residents; set aside a gallon or two of water for both scheduled disruptions and in the event of an unforeseen shutdown. Door hangers will always be distributed two days before a scheduled shutdown.
