The Village identified three outfalls for rehabilitation in 2021 near Ridge Lane, Oak Lane, and Crest Lane. V3 Companies is anticipated to begin work on the project beginning the week of November 29 and should conclude before the end of the year, pending weather or other unforeseen construction issues. Construction will occur from the creek, with access for construction equipment coming from Ridgewood Drive.
The removal of undesirable trees, invasive brush (i.e. buckthorn) or other landscaping within the public utility easement, Illinois Tollway property or bank of Flagg Creek may be required to complete the repair work. Any removals or damage that occurs on private property will be restored by the Village. The Village will be separately contacting those residents who are adjacent to the storm-sewer outfalls to coordinate construction access through existing public utility easements. A project page has been setup at wsprings.com/flaggcreekoutfalls. Project updates will only be posted on the project page and residents are encouraged to sign up to receive email notifications through the Village website.
