This week, the contractor completed the pavement removals throughout the area. For the remainder of the week, the contractor will continue to prepare the roadway base for paving the first layer of asphalt early next week. Additional notification will be delivered later this week once next week's paving schedule is confirmed. 

Greenwood Avenue

The contractor completed the remaining underground items this week and started the pavement removals today. The contractor anticipates completing the required pavement removals by the end of this week which will allow the new concrete curb to be installed early next week. 

The pavement removals and subsequent curb installation will require vehicles to park offsite while this work is taking place. The Village appreciates the cooperation during this time.

As discussed in the preconstruction meeting, this roadway will be receiving a new curb as part of the project.  The contractor anticipates beginning the first round of curb removal and replacements in the next 1-2 weeks.

Ambleside, Dimmeydale, and Windcrest

This week, the contractor was able to complete the first round of the curb installation as well as approximately half of the sidewalk. Today, the contractor installed the sidewalk in front of all impacted driveways, thereby allowing access again on Monday once the contractor opens them up.

Next week, the contractor will complete the remaining sidewalk and also begin curb and sidewalk removals on the other side of the streets. These removals will impact driveways beginning on Wednesday. A hand delivered notice with more information was distributed this afternoon.


Greenwood Avenue


Greenwood Avenue will be open for parking this weekend and residents are encouraged to park as usual. There will not be a need to park along Deere Park Ct until Monday morning.

The contractor continued the water main and storm sewer installation this week, including the new water main connection out to Deere Park Ct. With the exception of the private water service transfers to the new main, the contractor anticipates completing the remaining underground work by the end of the week. Once appropriate testing is completed on the water main, the contractor will return to complete the water service transfers to the new main.
