Restoration Work to Begin

Last week, limited work was performed on-site. The manhole lining contractor began installing the 3rd, and final, application of the lining process. The contractor began spraying the inside of the manholes with the epoxy material. This work is anticipated to be completed by the end of next week.

The contractor is also planning to be on-site on Saturday to complete some minor repairs and remaining work associated with the underground utility improvements. No roadways are anticipated to be dug up.

The Village worked diligently to determine a schedule from Nicor Gas to complete the gas main and service replacement project. Unfortunately, Nicor was not responsive the Village’s request. Therefore, the Village has decide to move forward with the completion and restoration of the project. Nicor Gas will now be responsible for restoring anything they damage during their construction.

The following is the anticipated schedule to complete the project:
Next week: Landscaper to spray weeds that have grown through the topsoil.
Week of September 22nd: Final grading of topsoil and installation of sod.
Early October: Asphalt surface paving.

You likely have noticed crews from National Power Rodding on-site cleaning and televising the sanitary sewers. This work is part of the Village’s 2014 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project. This is a separate project from the Colfax Avenue Project. This work is done under a separate contract as a cost-saving measure.

Thank you again for your patience as we get closer to the completion and final restoration of the project.
