Paving Tuesday on Elmwood Resulting in Complete Road Closure

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.
