Roadway Improvements Continue

Work Performed, July 10th to July 14th   
·         Completed underground utility improvements.
·         Began roadway excavation and aggregate base installation
·         Work progress delayed due to heavy rains.

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.
