Roadway reconstruction has continued throughout the week.  The excavation of the existing roadway, repair of poor soils below the existing pavement, and installation of gravel base is now completed. The next step is the installation of the concrete curb & gutter.

The concrete curb & gutter is planned to be poured on Monday, July 24th. During the concrete pouring and curing period, access to driveways will be restricted. Please have all vehicles removed from your garages and driveways by 7:00 AM on Monday, July 24th. We anticipate access will be restored by Friday, July 28th, pending any unforeseen delays or inclement weather.

Thanks again for all your patience as you deal with not being able to use your driveway for the coming week.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, July 17th to July 21st  
·         Complete roadway excavation and aggregate base installation
·         Prepare for concrete curb & gutter pouring
·         Grading of aggregate base

 Roadway reconstruction will continue next week.

Over the next few weeks, driveway access will be restricted to all residents along the project site. Access will be restricted from the time the string-line for the concrete curb & gutter is set to the paving of the first layers of asphalt pavement. The exact dates for the beginning of driveway restrictions is not yet determined, but it will likely start early the week of July 24h with access restored within 2 weeks.  The Village of Glenview will provided notices to all residents affected by the driveway restrictions. The notification will include dates and times to have vehicles removed from the driveway, available parking options, and anticipated timeframe access will be restored.

As you are aware, a significant rainfall event occurred during the middle of the week.  Unfortunately due to the stage of the construction, a portion of the roadway was very difficult to travel along until additional repairs could be made the following day. Due to the heavy rains, construction was delayed for the remainder of the week and will resume next week.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding as you deal with the extended driveway restriction in the coming weeks and difficult traveling conditions during construction.

·         No work anticipated on-site on Tuesday, July 4th
·         Complete remaining underground utility improvements, only minor items remain
·         Begin roadway reconstruction

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

During roadway construction, access to Linneman Street will be limited during working hours. As you have been dealing with over the past several weeks, heavy construction equipment and work has made it very difficult to travel along Linneman Street. 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 installation, driveway access will be restricted for approximately 5 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.

As stated in previous posts, since this project is funded by the Village of Glenview, construction will not be delayed due to the current shut-down of IDOT projects.

Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th Weekend.
