River Road Reconstruction Update 5-19-16

The contractor has completed the majority of excavation and placement of the stone base from the south limit to Oakton.  Excavation and stone placement is now being performed from Oakton to the north limit.  This work is temporarily restricting driveway and side street access for a few days but the contractor is keeping these restrictions to a minimum.  It is anticipated that the major excavation and stone placement will be complete by the end of May.

Concurrently subcontractors are continuing their work on the project.  Underground work is being completed for the new traffic signals and lighting at the Oakton intersection as well as improvements to the traffic signals at Algonquin.  Landscape restoration has occurred on the east side of River Road, along the Forest Preserve property.  Traffic control is constantly being monitored and adjustments are made as needed depending on construction operations.

Construction signage and flaggers will continue to be used throughout the project.  Expect delays while traveling through the project area and use an alternate route if possible.
