Deerfield Road Update - 7/22/2020

Posted on July 22, 2020 at 12:22 PM by Tyler Dickinson


Work Completed
Through June and early July, the contractor completed the required underground repairs and the replacement of roadway curbs and sidewalks. Early this week, the contractor completed the removal of the existing pavement surface from the Metra viaduct to Wilmot Road. 

Anticipated Upcoming Work
This week, the contractor will begin the necessary roadway patching which will require traffic control around these patches. There are a few patches that require repair within the Chestnut intersection. This area will be reduced to 2 lanes of traffic through the intersection and at times, will require flagging of traffic through the work area.  This work will cause delays in traffic and the Village recommends using alternate routes if possible. 

Over the course of the next month, the contractor will work diligently to complete the project prior to the opening of school. This may include working on Saturdays to help meet the schedule.

The Village would like to remind all motorists to be alert while driving through the construction zone as traffic patterns and closures may change. The Village appreciates your 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.
