River Road Reconstruction Update 5-31-16

The contractor continued placing the capping stone for the stone base this week.  The majority of the material was placed on the north half of the project, from Riverview to Henry.  The contractor has mobilized equipment for fine grading the stone base.  Layout and elevation checks for the stone base fine grade operation is taking place.  The fine grade operation is scheduled for next week, weather depending.  Driveway and side street access has been restored throughout the project.    

Subcontractors continue to work on the project.  Underdrain installation was completed from Welwyn to Oakton.  Various manhole adjustments were also made.  Additional landscaping was completed on Oakton on the south side, near the bridge and on River Road near the Forest Preserve property.  Fading and deteriorated pavement markings were refreshed and all traffic control devices were inspected and if needed, were repaired or replaced.

The project is a still behind schedule however the contractor is optimistic, with good weather some days can be recovered.

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.
