2019 Roadway Improvements - Lawn Avenue West Lane and Sodding Schedule

Lawn Avenue (47th - Elm) West Lane

The contractor is scheduled to open the majority of the west lane of Lawn Avenue tomorrow morning, pending concrete testing. Most of the west lane was poured 7 days ago and the testing results are trending for the concrete to reach the proper strength by tomorrow. The contractor will remove the barricades once the west lane is re-opened for public use. All residents on the west side of Lawn will be able to access driveways at that time unless you have been notified otherwise by Village staff. The portion of Lawn Avenue that was poured late last week, near Elm St., will remain closed until it is fully cured. 

Sodding Schedule

The re-grading and sodding of the parkways will occur in the spring of 2020 due to the time of year and approaching freezing temperatures. The parkway, which is the area between the curb and the sidewalk, will remain largely unchanged until next spring. The contractor will return in the next week to fill in any areas behind the curb, next to driveways and near sidewalks for the winter. In the spring, the contractor will return to re-grade the parkway and install new sod throughout the project area.
