2016 Contract B - Construction Update 8/23/16

Cambridge Road (Northwest Highway to Wisconsin)

Work on Cambridge is currently on hold.  We are still waiting for Nicor Gas to lower multiple gas service lines that are too high and in conflict with the new road base.  Once the gas services have been lowered, the contractor will return to remove the dirt at the old gas service areas and replace it with stone.  Once this activity is completed, one side of sidewalk will be scheduled to be removed and replaced, as necessary.  The curb and driveway aprons will then be poured.  One side of Cambridge will be completed at a time to prevent all residents from losing driveway access at the same time.

Rusty Drive (Touhy to Parkwood)

The contractor has removed 2" of the existing pavement.  Weather permitting, Public Works plans to complete the resurfacing this week.

Debra Drive (Marshall to Lillian) & Locust Street (Welwyn to Howard)

The contractor removed 2" of pavement from Debra and Locust.  Paving is scheduled for the end of this week, weather permitting.
