Neighborhood Road Improvement Program - July 15, 2014
2013 Roadway Maintenance AreasProject Status - Update July 15, 2014

The Preserves of Marley Creek and the Breckenridge -
The contractor is continuing work removing and replacing the deficient curb and sidewalks in the subdivisions.  Storm sewer structure repairs are also being completed as the concrete is replaced.  Construction was started at the north end of the subdivision near 179th Street and is progressing southerly through the Preserves and then will proceed west  into Breckenridge.  This work will continue for the next couple of weeks followed by underdrain installation, pavement removal, Shotcrete repairs and eventually the final paving work.    

The contractor will be working on additional asphalt patching in various neighborhoods throughout the coming weeks.

151st Street between Ravinia Avenue and El Cameno Re'al has been resurfaced and striped.  This area is complete.

The 2013 Road Improvement Program is 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.  The electrical subcontractor is completing the wiring for the 12 new street lights.  Unfortunately, it may take several months before the lights will be on.  ComEd must make the electrical connection to turn the lights 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!
