2018 Roadway Program - Nicor Gas Main Conflict on Lawn Avenue

The contractor has discovered a very shallow 2" Nicor gas main on Lawn Avenue. The main in question was displayed on the plans and specifications, but its depth was shallower than the standard depth for Nicor. Village staff and the contractor are working with Nicor to determine if the gas main needs to be lowered as part of this project. The contractor has moved all crews over to Johnson Avenue for the time being. If the main needs to be relocated, Nicor will be on-site next week to lower the gas main before the contractor returns. Nicor estimates the lowering of the gas main to take 2-3 days. If it does not, the contractor will return to pour curb and the west lane of Johnson.
