2018 Roadway Program - Topsoil and Restoration Update

The landscaping contractor has procured topsoil for the restoration of the project areas. The stretch of relatively dry days has allowed topsoil manufacturers to  begin producing the product in the quantities required for the project. The landscaping contractor is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 to begin restoring parkways. Their tasks will include the following:

  • Regrading of parkway areas adjacent to trees, hydrants, signs, etc. These areas require manual labor as the heavy equipment could not get close enough without causing potential damages.
  • Installation of ~4" of topsoil
  • Installation of fresh sod
  • Watering for 2 weeks, with the option of supplemental watering if needed

Please understand that there are some sections of sod that may not take properly in a project this large. The Village maintains a 1 year warranty with the contractor, starting on the date that the Village accepts the installed work. Staff will review the area near the termination of the warranty, but please do not hesitate to use the contact information below if you notice areas that will require replacement. 

Please remember that the schedule remains weather dependent. The current forecast does not show significant rain, but that can change quickly. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at
