Pavement Milling Next Week. Expect Travel Delays

Work Performed, September 11th to September 15th
·         Poured concrete sidewalk from River Drive to Church Street
·         Poured colored and stamped concrete sidewalk from River Drive to Church Street
·         Poured concrete driveways and sidewalks at public parking lot east of River Drive (next to Oil Lamp Theater). Access is now restored.
·         Lowering of manholes in preparation for pavement milling.
·         Continued with irrigation and street lighting installations along project site.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, September 18th to September 22nd
·         Milling existing pavement along Glenview Road from Harlem Avenue to Waukegan Road (Glenview Road and Harlem Avenue Project)
·         Perform patching of failed pavement sections as identified after milling.
·         Continue with installation of electrical and irrigation systems along project site.
·         Perform repairs to water main system identified during final testing.

On Monday and Tuesday next week, the contractor will be milling the existing pavement along Glenview Road from Harlem Avenue to Waukegan Road as part of the Harlem Avenue Improvement and the Glenview Road Improvements.  The work has been scheduled to be completed at the same time to reduce the length of travel delays. We do anticipate some travel delays along Glenview Road early next week while the work is on-going, please plan accordingly.

Concrete sidewalk work is nearly completed for the entire project with the exception of areas where the temporary traffic signal and light poles are in conflict.

We do anticipate the travel delays to be more significant during the roadway phase since the work will be performed primarily within the travel lanes in lieu of the sidewalks as performed previously. It is anticipated that the first layer of asphalt pavement will be installed the week of September 25th.

Thanks for your understanding and patience as you deal with the travel delays associated with the roadway improvements.

Construction Anticipated to Stop Friday, June 30

Thank you for your cooperation and patience while construction crews are working to complete infrastructure and streetscape improvements on Glenview Road. Due to the lack of a state budget agreement, all construction projects with State/Federal funding have been instructed to suspend construction on Friday, June 30 until a budget or other spending measure is passed by legislators.

The Glenview Road Streetscape project includes State/Federal funding; therefore, construction is anticipated to stop this Friday. The Village of Glenview has taken the following actions to prepare for the pending construction work suspension:
  • Ongoing underground work that requires the need for the Dewes Street detour is being expedited by the contractor with the goal of substantial completion by Friday, June 30 at 3 p.m. This will allow the roadway to be reopened before the shutdown, without the need to reinstate the detour again at a later time after work is allowed to resume.
  • If weather or other delays negatively impact the timing of the underground work completion as outlined in the above item, the roadway will be temporarily restored and the detour will be taken down by Friday, June 30 at 3 p.m. allowing two-way traffic along Glenview Road during the shutdown period.
  • Sidewalks will be restored to a temporary or permanent condition, so that pedestrian travel ways are fully accessible along both sides of the street during the shutdown period.
  • Idled equipment and materials that remain onsite will be moved to a safe and secure location, away from the travel ways and business entrances to the extent possible.
The Village of Glenview will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates.

Potential IDOT Shut-Down would Delay Project

Work Performed, June 19th to June 23rd

·         Performed necessary testing and receiving necessary approvals prior to placing new water main into service
·         Storm sewer installation
·         Poured concrete sidewalk along the west side of Pine Street
·         Poured concrete sidewalk along the north side of Glenview Road east of Pine Street

·         Remove detour route
·         General site clean-up in preparation for July 4th weekend and potential IDOT shut-down.

As you may be aware or heard in the news, the State of Illinois has not passed a budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Due to the fact a budget has not been passed, all projects with State / Federal Funding have been order to stop construction on Friday, June 30th until a budget or other spending measure is passed by the legislature.

The Glenview Road Streetscape project does include State / Federal funding; therefore, construction is currently anticipated to stop on June 30th. Prior to that date, the contractor is hoping to have all the underground utility work and permanent patching completed between Church Street and Waukegan Road. Should this work be completed, the full roadway closure and detour route will be taken down for Glenview Road between Church Street and Waukegan Road.
 
In order to get as much work as possible completed, the contractor will be working this Saturday, June 24th from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Also, the contractor will begin work each morning at 6:00 AM for the entirety of the week.

The contractor will also perform general site clean-up and review the traffic control devices prior the July 4th Weekend.

We apologize for the inconvenience for these delays, but unfortunately there is nothing the Village of Glenview can do in this situation until the State Legislature / IDOT authorizes work to resume.

 

Thanks again for all your patience.
