Park Hill Drive & Orland Woods Subdivision
Curb repairs and concrete work has been completed.  Pavement grinding was done this week.  Asphalt paving is expected on October 1 and 2, weather permitting. 

Park Hill Drive will be CLOSED to through traffic on October 1 north of the retail shops to Sunrise Lane.  The road will only be closed for a few hours during the day.


The Preserves of Marley Creek and the Breckenridge -
All work in these neighborhood is completed except for restorations. Sod will be installed in late autumn when cooler temperatures will help establish healthy lawn repairs.

Asphalt Patching -
The contractor continues working on additional asphalt patching in various neighborhoods throughout the village.

The 2013 Road Improvement Program 
Completed in the Orland Golfview subdivision north of Wheeler Drive and west of 82nd Avenue.   The area has been completed for the curb, sidewalk and asphalt repairs and replacements.

The street lighting in the Orland Hills Gardens area is being finalized.  Village staff is working with ComEd to have the new street lights connected. Unfortunately, it may take several months before the lights will be on. 


Project Description
A street maintenance program is approved annually by the mayor and Board of Trustees. Various village-owned and -accepted streets are scheduled for rehabilitation this year. The purpose of this program is to reconstruct streets which have deteriorated over and above normal maintenance.

Miscellaneous roadway patching will occur in areas throughout the village.

Inclusions
The program includes replacement of hazardous sidewalks, repair or replacement of non-functioning curbs and gutters, milling of the existing street, and new surface layer of asphalt. This program does not include:
  • Replacement of driveways
  • Replacement of driveway aprons
  • Entry walks
  • Functioning curb and gutter meeting engineering standards

Please note: The above items are the responsibility of the homeowner.  Replacement cost is the responsibility of the homeowner. Remember that any driveway reconstruction / replacement requires a building permit.

Delays & Concerns
Street rehabilitation is unfortunately subject to weather conditions. Most materials and construction methods do not fair well in poor weather. Bad weather can therefore delay the project for a few days. We ask for your patience as we wait for better weather.

Most importantly, public safety is a primary concern for the village, contractor, and residents during the rehabilitation process. We ask that you please drive slowly and cautiously through the work areas. We realize that the project presents a significant inconvenience to many residents. Your patience during the construction process is greatly appreciated!
