Project Schedule: 

To facilitate the work and keep the contractor on schedule, the project will be divided into three stages: (Stage I) underground utility work; (Stage II) concrete curb removal/replacement, sidewalk repair and roadway rehabilitation; and (Stage III) parkway restoration. Construction will be underway at various locations simultaneously. Therefore, further notification regarding scheduled operations per location will be communicated as it becomes available utilizing the Village’s website and email notifications.

Stage I:  Underground utility work
Stage I includes underground utility work and will include storm sewer and some fire hydrant replacement. The majority of construction will be performed in the roadway area with the exception of the replacement of storm sewer structures and sidewalks within the parkway area. If you have existing appurtenances within the parkway or Village Right of Way 

(i.e. sprinkler system, electronic “invisible” dog fence, landscape features, special decorative rocks, brick driveways, special vegetative plantings, etc.) you should remove or store these items to avoid damage by construction activity. The Village will not repair or replace private appurtenances left within the parkway, or Village Right of Way, which are damaged during construction.

Stage II:   Concrete curb removal/replacement, sidewalk repair, roadway rehabilitation

Stage II will begin upon completion of the underground utility work.  The work will be performed as follows: 

• Removal and replacement of all deteriorated curbs and sidewalks.

• Removal of roadway pavement and placement of new bituminous asphalt pavement. (Concrete patching on Stratford Rd.)

• Note: The final surface is scheduled to be completed in the first half of October.

• Repair of driveway sections, parkway, and sidewalk impacted by construction. 

During Stage II residents may not have access to their driveways and the road will be closed to through traffic while concrete curbs, driveway aprons and concrete sidewalk are being installed. Residents will be advised to park their vehicles on adjacent streets during construction hours (7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) or in front of their homes after construction hours. The Deerfield Police Department will be notified that residents will be parking in these areas during this stage of construction.

Stage III:    Parkway restoration   
All parkway areas disturbed by construction activity will be restored. Construction is expected to be completed by October 1, 2014. However, due to the complex nature of the project and the unpredictability of the weather, some delays and disruptions may occur.  Additional construction notices will be provided as the project progresses.  If you are planning a special event, such as a wedding or large party, or have special needs, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Most importantly, the Village will be sending out email notifications to those who have subscribed to receive them. Residents are able to subscribe to location-specific email notifications by clicking on the banner provided below.  Users can subscribe to multiple locations and subscribing to VILLAGE WIDE notices is recommended.  However, please be certain to subscribe to your location specifically, as special notices may be sent to these subscribers relative to construction operations.
