WORK COMPLETED
Last week, the contractor continued with the installation of the new storm sewer from North Avenue to the south limits. The contractor also completed the water main connection at North Avenue on Friday for the new section of water main at the north end of Woodvale Avenue.

ANTICIPATED SCHEDULE THIS WEEK
This week, the contractor will work to complete the storm sewer installation throughout the project. This at times will cause delays in through traffic. During these situations, motorists are encouraged to use adjacent roadways to avoid the construction. The contractor will also work perform all necessary testing requirements on the new water main with the anticipation of putting this into service next week.

CORONAVIRUS
The Village’s infrastructure construction projects fit under an exemption per the Governor’s Stay at Home order. Outdoor activities, like construction projects, generally will provide for good social distancing that poses little risk of transmission, but it still is important to ensure the ability to wash or sanitize hands and take other precautions. Village and contractor personnel will continue to practice safe social distancing and sanitation efforts during the construction. 

If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the Woodvale Avenue Project.

Please remember to drive and walk carefully through the construction zone.

The Village would like to thank all of those that attended Wednesday’s Woodvale Avenue Project public meeting. The meeting was well attended and many important topics were covered. Some of the topics that were covered were:

-      Anticipated daily impacts

-      Driveway impacts

-      Water main impacts and associated precautionary boil orders

-      Construction Schedule

-      Offsite Parking

WORK COMPLETED

Last week, the contractor mobilized their equipment to the site and began the new water main installation near North Avenue.

ANTICIPATED SCHEDULE NEXT WEEK

Next Monday, the contractor will begin storm sewer installation throughout the project. This at times will cause delays in through traffic. During these situations, motorists are encouraged to use adjacent roadways to avoid the construction.

CORONAVIRUS

The Village has decided to postpone any work that would impact private water services. Therefore, there will be no planned water main shutdowns until further notice. Construction activities are moving forward as planned.

If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the Woodvale Avenue Project.

WORK COMPLETED

Last week, the contractor completed the installation of water main near North Avenue and began the installation of storm sewer at the north and south ends. The water main that was installed near North Avenue and the remaining work will be completed at a later date when scheduled water impacts can take place.

ANTICIPATED SCHEDULE NEXT WEEK

This week, the contractor will continue storm sewer installation throughout the project. This at times will cause delays in through traffic. During these situations, motorists are encouraged to use adjacent roadways to avoid the construction.

CORONAVIRUS

Per last week’s Stay at Home order from Gov. Pritzker, construction is an exempt activity and therefore, the Woodvale Avenue construction project will continue as scheduled. Additionally, and as communicated last week, the Village has postponed any scheduled work that would impact private water services.


If you have any questions or require special assistance during construction, please contact the Village of Deerfield Engineering Department at 847-317-2490 and request to speak with someone regarding the Woodvale Avenue Project.
