Deer Lake Road and Estate Drive Project

Project Status: 5% Completed

Project Start:   July 5, 2016
Project Completion:  November 18, 2016


The Village of Deerfield is pleased to announce that work will begin on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. 

The Village is aware that there are a number of businesses that that exist within the project limits. Therefore, we have directed the contractor to post signage stating that all businesses are open during construction.

The project contractor is ALamp Concrete Contractors. The village has designated Christopher Burke Engineering to assist with management of construction and monitoring of daily operations. Both the contractor and engineering consultant have proven to be very approachable. If you require assistance on site, please feel free to communicate directly with our team.

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. 

Stage I:  Underground utility work

Stage I includes storm sewer work as it relates to roadway drainage. The majority of construction will be performed in the roadway area with the exception of the replacement of storm sewer structures within the parkway area. *This project has minimal underground work. Therefore, the project will appear to move directly into stage II on July 5th.

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.                                                        

Note: The final surface is scheduled to be completed mid-August.

Repair of driveway sections and sidewalk impacted by construction.  

During Stage II some access points may be closed to through traffic while concrete curbs, driveway aprons, and concrete sidewalk are being installed. Alternate access will be available and communicated prior to any impacts. 

Stage III:    Parkway restoration   

All parkway areas disturbed by construction activity will be restored. Construction is expected to be completed by September 1, 2016. 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.

The Village appreciates your effort in helping to complete this improvement. If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction as a result of a disability, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding this Project.
