2018/2019 Roadway Programs - Status Updates

2018 Roadway Program

The spring construction season has not been favorable due to the excessive rain. Not only has it delayed construction, but it also delayed the procurement of various landscaping items. Please remember that all dates specified in these updates are subject to weather and construction issues. Projects of this size almost always encounter delays of some nature and the Village thanks residents and businesses for their continued patience.

The general contractor has completed the rough re-grading of the parkway on Johnson and Lawn Avenue. The landscaping subcontractor will arrive next to finish regrading some areas by hand (around trees, signs, or other parkway elements). They will then install 4" of fresh topsoil and sod all areas. The excessive rain has made the procurement of topsoil difficult, especially in the large volume required for this project. A start date for the topsoil and sod installation will be sent out in a future update, once staff receives it. 

The Village has also procured a separate contractor to repair the few sprinkler systems that were properly marked before construction began and damaged. The irrigation contractor is scheduled to make repairs in the next week. 

2019 Roadway Program

DiNatale Construction was awarded the contract for the 2019 Roadway Program as the lowest, responsible bidder. The Village is still awaiting responses from various state agencies on approval of the contract. Once approval is issued, staff can schedule a pre-construction meeting and determine the actual project start date. The project start date will be posted in a future update when staff receives it.
