2019 Roadway Program - Nicor Work

The Village has received a number of phone calls pertaining to on-going work on Lawn, Clausen and other nearby streets in the Village. The work occurring on these streets is being performed by Nicor Gas and is not part of the Village roadway program. Nicor Gas has begun a project of gas main relocation and new gas service installation in Western Springs and other surrounding communities. The work on Lawn and Clausen was added to their project once they were made aware that the Village was reconstructing both roadways. In short, they decided to relocate their utilities to keep them out of the new roadway, sewer and water main improvements. They did not make the Village aware of this work until they had already begun. The Village has requested better communication from them in the future as this type of works impacts all facets of the community. Nicor Gas is responsible for restoring any private property that they disturb as part of their project. Areas in the Village right-of-way will be filed with stone and restored as part of the Village roadway program.
