Roadway Excavation to Begin

Work Performed, July 17th to July 21st  
·         Completed water service replacements
·         Made final connections to existing water main
·         Abandoned / removed existing fire hydrants and valves no longer in service.
·         Began removing sidewalk in preparation for roadway improvements.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, July 24th to July 28th
·         Perform roadway excavation and installation of gravel base.

The underground utility improvements (water main, storm sewer, sanitary sewer) are now completed.

The next phase of construction will be the roadway reconstruction phase. This phase of construction will consists of removing the existing asphalt pavement, repairing any areas of the existing soil below the pavement that are failing, installing new aggregate base, new concrete curb & gutter, new concrete sidewalks, and asphalt pavement.

As the roadway construction phase has started, access to Parkview Lane will be limited during working hours. As you have been dealing with over the past several weeks, heavy construction equipment and number of workers has made it very difficult to travel along Parkview Lane. Next week during working hours, the contractor will be excavating the entire roadway width to remove the existing pavement and perform the work associated with reconstructing the roadway. We ask that you remove your vehicles prior to working hours, then following work completing for the day, you will have access to your driveways.  During concrete curb & gutter and sidewalk installation, driveway access will be restricted for approximately 7 to 10 days. The Village of Glenview will be hand-delivering letters with exact dates of the driveway and travel restrictions as well as parking options, please be on the look-out for these letters on your front door.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding. There have been several unforeseen delays, including inclement weather, that have caused this project to last longer than anticipated. The Village and contractor are committed to getting this project done as quickly as possible.
