Update September 3, 2019

 

Most of the pavement in the closure has been removed and the contractor continues processing the concrete and the asphalt to re-use. The new storm sewer installation and the removal of the existing storm sewer continues. The new water main installation from Dugdale to Lewis will continue this week. The sheet piling for the retaining wall next to the forest preserve is in and the concrete cap will be added soon. Major grading operations are expected this week to get the base to the proper elevation so aggregate subgrade can be placed.

6/13/2019 Update

ComEd and North Shore Gas are relocating their lines to avoid our construction. They are working in stages to clear the Dugdale and 14th St intersection first. Once they get relocated, they will move to the east and their next section of the relocation. At that point the contractors for AT&T, Comcast, and G4S will begin to relocate their lines near Dugdale and 14th.

The general contractor will start their pavement work when they are confident that we can minimize the full closure at Dugdale and the detour. We are expecting to start the pavement reconstruction work in July.

The contractor will begin working on tree removal, new watermain installation, and temporary traffic signal installation in the next few weeks. This work is not impacted by the utility work.
