Major Construction Work to Start Following July 4th Holiday Weekend

This past week several of the utilities companies were working in the area. ComEd was on-site installing new electrical wires and making all necessary connections. ComEd is expected to be completed with their work early the week of June 23rd.

NPL, a contractor hired by Nicor, arrived on-site to begin installing new gas main and services to all homes in the project area. The contractor is starting to work on the south end of the project along Central Road.  Once the work is completed along Central Road, the contractor will continue move to north along Glendale Drive and Glenayre Drive.

We have met with the general contractor hired by the Village to perform a majority of the work, DiMeo Brothers. The contractor is currently allowing the gas main contractor some time to get ahead of him prior to starting the major construction work. DiMeo is anticipating to start project preparation work including mobilize heavy equipment, grinding the existing pavement along Central Road, set-up traffic control, install erosion control measures, and other items of work the week of June 30th.

Major underground utility construction along Central Road is expected to start the week of July 7th, following the July 4th Holiday.

We understand there are a significant amount of private improvements within the public right-of-way including boulders, paver blocks, irrigation systems, invisible dog fences, and driveways constructed of brick pavers, stamped concrete, or other specialty materials.  We encourage you to please contact either the on-site project representative, Chris Baumann, at or the Village Project Manager, Russ Jensen at 847-904-4418 or at your earliest convenience to discuss relocating or removing these improvements prior the construction work beginning.

The start of the major construction work is coming up soon after many years of planning. We ask for your patience and understanding during the construction phase due to the many inconveniences that you will experience over the coming months. We will do our best to minimize these inconveniences to the greatest extent possible and keep you updated on the progress of the project.
