Roadway Improvements to Begin Next Week.

Work Performed, July 24th to July 28th 
·         Installed topsoil and erosion blanket within ditch lines.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, July 31st to August 4th
·         Complete needed storm repairs within existing system that were identified during televising inspection.
·         Remove existing pavement
·         Perform excavation and installation of gravel base in areas of pavement widening

The contractor installed topsoil with a straw erosion control blanket within the ditch lines and in areas where construction previously occurred. No grass seed was installed under the straw blanket. The contractor will lay sod during the September/October timeframe when growing conditions are more favorable. The straw erosion control blanket was installed to prevent the topsoil from eroding away and entering the storm sewer system during rain events.

Thanks again for all your patience as the project continues.

Many of you have likely heard in the news about the potential for construction shut-downs associated without having a state budget passed by the legislature. This project is not affected by that potential shut-down since no State or Federal funds are being utilized.  This project is 100% funded by the Village of Glenview; therefore, work will continue without delay.

Thank you for all your patience as you are dealing with the inconveniences that come with living in a construction area.
