Project Description

This project involves the installation of new water main from Glenview Road to the South, removal of existing sanitary to be replaced with new, some storm sewer installation and the reconstruction of the road.

Friday, July 30, 2010

The water main installation started on Thursday. The water main is being installed by a method call Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). In this method, a reamer is used to push a tunnel through the ground. Then the pipe is pulled through/into this tunnel. This process will be done in two sections due to the length of the main. Once the pipe is installed, the contractor comes back and installs the valves (which turn the water on and off), fire hydrants and water services.

The strike was resolved this week and new contracts between the unions and contractors have been signed and are in effect. The contractor resumed work this week!

The contractor plans to begin watermain installation early next week.

Dear Resident:

Thank you for your ongoing patience during the Village construction project adjacent to your home. At this time, the Village has been notified that Chicagoland Construction Labor Unions are going on strike. The conflict is between the Contracting Companies and the Unions, not involving the Village.

Work has therefore been temporarily shut down on your street. We are insuring that all construction sites are safe to the general public and will continue to actively monitor each site.

If any issues arise, or if you should have any questions, please contact the Village Project Manager or the Capital Projects Department at (847) 998-9500.

As of today, we do not have any information on how long this strike could last. We will inform you when this issue is resolved and work will resume.

Thank you again for your patience while this matter is resolved.


We invite all residents to the Informational Meeting at the Police Station on Thursday July 8th at 6 PM.
