Posted on October 22, 2018 at 10:43 AM by John Guccione

This is a courtesy notice to inform you that paving will take place on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 on Elmwood Ave.  Full-width paving operations will require the complete closure of Elmwood Ave beginning around 7 AM and should be completed by 4 PM.

Due to Elmwood Ave being a dead-end street, it is necessary to close the road completely. During Tuesdays’s closure, the contractor will place reflective crack-control fabric prior to placing the final layer of hot mix asphalt. Traffic will be permitted on the new pavement 1-2 hours after completion.

During paving operations, please note that homeowners will have access to their property at all times via the parkway area. However, due to limited space, access to driveways will be denied during paving operations. Please allow ample time for relocation of vehicles and temporary delays. Driveway access will be re-established at the end of paving operations.

The Village appreciates your patience and effort in helping to complete this improvement. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the project.

During the day, between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM, please park your vehicle(s) away from the construction area to allow the contractor complete access to the job site. Overnight parking on village streets will not be required, as access to driveways will be re-established at the end of daytime operations.

**Emergency vehicles will always be granted access in emergency situations.

NOTE REGARDING LEAF COLLECTION: With leaf collection beginning next week, the Village will perform a special leaf collection on Tuesday morning to ensure that leaves are removed prior to prime coat application and paving operations. Therefore, the Village has coordinated an early morning leaf collection on Tuesday morning before paving (between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM).  Please place leaves behind the curb and not in the roadway in time for this collection.  **NO LANDSCAPING SERVICES WILL BE ALLOWED TO ACCESS ELMWOOD ON TUESDAY. If your service is on Tuesday please contact your landscaping service to reschedule.

Due to  both Elmwood and Crabtree both being dead end streets, these roads will need to be completely closed to traffic during this work.

On Monday, full-width paving operations will result in the complete closure of Elmwood Ave. beginning around 7 a.m. and should be completed by noon.

Also on Monday, full-width paving operations will result in the complete closure of Crabtree Ave. beginning around 7 a.m. and should be completed by 4 p.m.

During paving operations, please note that homeowners will have access to their property at all times via the parkway area. However, due to limited space, access to driveways will be denied during paving operations. Please allow ample time for relocation of vehicles and temporary delays that may occur. Though driveway access may be denied during paving operations, access will be re-established at the end of paving operations.

Overnight parking on adjacent streets will be permitted during this phase of construction. During the day, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., please park your vehicle(s) away from the construction area to allow the contractor complete access to the job site.

Pavement Removal Begins Wednesday on Elmwood Ave

Posted on October 5, 2018 at 3:33 PM by John Guccione

Pavement removal/grinding will begin on Wednesday October 3rd on Elmwood Ave (beginning around 12pm). During this operation, the contractor will remove the top 3” – 4” of pavement in order to expose the concrete sub-base. Once the surface layer is removed, Village staff will inspect the concrete subbase to identify any required subbase surface patching that would be required prior to replacing the surface course in the next 10 days. 

Pavement removal operations include heavy truck traffic and will present delays in accessing residential driveways, as the contractor works to remove/grind half of the roadway at a time. 

Once the roadway’s surface course is removed, residents will have access to their driveway, but should drive slowly when accessing driveways due to the difference in subbase pavement to curb elevation.  

Though most driveways will be accessible during pavement removal/grinding operations, we ask that residents try to avoid traveling through the work zone or minimize trips in and out during daytime operations.  

Additional notification will be provided prior to paving operations which will take place in the next 10 days.
