Work has resumed and substantial progress has been made. The new Waukegan water main is live and all work on it has been completed. The new North Chicago water main is in place and is being tested. Once the test results are accepted, the contractor will connect the new services and abandon the existing main. This should be complete in 2-3 weeks.
The aggregate base has been installed for the stage 1 pavement from Lewis to Dugdale. The contractor will continue excavating and placing the aggregate base east of Lewis heading toward Jackson this week and next.
The remaining sidewalk from IL-131 to Dugdale will be placed this week and the curb along the north side of 14th from Lewis to Dugdale will get started this week.
The multi-use path along Dugdale and 14th to IL-131 has been graded and will be paved in the next few weeks. The asphalt base will also be placed west of Lewis once the concrete curb has enough strength.
The Lewis and 14th intersection will have a new traffic pattern soon. There will be one lane in each direction for both roads with no turn lanes. This configuration will be a temporary condition that will only last 2-3 weeks and it will allow the project to combine sub-stages to provide a superior final product in a shorter overall time frame. Please use caution through this area.
