2019 Roadway Improvements - General Update 11/1/2019

The contractor is on schedule to complete pouring the west lane of Lawn Avenue (47th to Burlington) today, weather permitting. The west lane and driveways will remain closed to the public for 7-10 days as the concrete cures. Please do not drive on the west lane until you have been notified, via another update, that it is re-opened. Applying an excessive load, like a vehicle, to uncured concrete will significantly decrease the lifespan of the new pavement. Individuals discovered driving on the uncured concrete will be held financially responsible for repairs or replacement. 

Village staff and the contractor will be reviewing the weather forecast for November to determine if it will be acceptable to install sod this year. The alternative is to back-fill all areas in the parkways so the ground is level, and return in the early spring to re-grade and install sod. Another update will be sent out next week with more information. 

Please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at with any questions or concerns.
