Parkview Estates - Update 3/30/16
Project Update

Parkview Estates – Stage I
The Parkview Estates Stage I stormwater improvement project is located north of 135th Street and east of 88th Avenue.  Due to difficulty securing easements , the design of Stage I improvement project has been significantly altered.  Stage I of the proposed improvements consists of the construction of an overflow pipe to convey offsite flow safely through the subdivision and modifications to the outlet control structure.  Phase II Design and engineering of the alternate route were completed over the Winter and substantial construction was completed in the Spring of 2015.  Resident cooperation and granting of required easements made this project possible and has significantly reduced the risk of flooding for this subdivision.

  
Parkview Estates – Stage II
The Parkview Estates Stage II stormwater improvement project is located south of 139th Street and east of 88th Avenue in the Evergreen View Park.  The second phase of the improvement project will consist of the construction of a detention storage basin at Evergreen View Park and associated conveyance pipes from the Caro Vista Subdivision.  The improvements will provide widespread benefits from throughout this portion of the Village from Caro Vista to Villa West and through Parkview Estates.  Phase I design has been completed.  Phase II design is underway and has been submitted to the Village for review and comment.   

Proposed Phase II


Project Description

The Parkview area has evolved in scope and size to incorporate several other areas of the Village into the study area.  The study area known as Parkview now encompasses portions of Caro Vista and Villa West among others.  Christopher B. Burke Engineering Ltd. (CBBEL) has developed detailed existing and proposed conditions models for the entire area and presented the Village with a number of alterative designs to reduce the risk of future flooding. 

The Village has selected a preferred set of alternatives that will be broken into two phases for design and construction.  The first phase will consist of the construction of an overflow pipe to convey offsite storm water flow through the subdivision and to modify the outlet control structure.  This stage was recently approved by the Village Board as a Design-Build project to be completed this year.  Design and engineering are currently underway with a permit submittal to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) expected to occur in the next several weeks.  Since the existing detention basin was permitted by the MWRD, any modifications must be approved by them. 

The second phase will consist of the construction of a detention storage basin and associated conveyance pipes from the Caro Vista subdivision.


Project History
The project site is located north of 135th Street and east of 88th Avenue. Several residential structures in the area have been subjected to repeated flooding from un-detained runoff flowing from the unincorporated Palos Township located immediately east of the subdivision.
