Work at Intersection of Henley Street and Lincoln Street Next Week

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street between Washington Street and Lincoln Street.

Also last week, the contractor began installing the 48-inch storm sewer along Lehigh Avenue from Henley Street to the south, past Linneman Street, and to the proposed detention pond behind Glenview Methodist Church. It is anticipated this work will be completed early next week.

Mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street behind the Glenview Methodist Church are on-going. The contractor has shaped the southerly berm and south third of the detention pond and will begin re-spreading the existing topsoil.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer and will likely get to the Lincoln Street intersection at the beginning of next week.

Once the crew working on the 48-inch storm sewer to the detention pond is completed, they will begin installing the new water main along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. Residents will be notified prior to any scheduled water shut-downs.
      
Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend!!!

Large Junction Chamber at Washington & Henley Installed.

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street from Harlem Avenue to Washington Street.

The major work completed last week was the installation of the large underground junction chamber at the intersection of Henley Street and Washington Street. This was the 2nd, and final, junction chamber installed as part of the project. The first was installed at the intersection of Henley Street and Lehigh Avenue. We thank you for your understanding while the intersection was closed for several days to accommodate the construction.

Also completed last week was the storm sewer along Lehigh Avenue from Henley Street to the northerly end of the street.

Last week also saw the start of the mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street behind the Glenview Methodist Church. The grading and excavation of this detention pond will take 1 to 2 months to complete.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer at the same time between Washington Street and Lincoln Street.  

The second underground utility crew will begin installing the 48-inch storm along Lehigh Avenue from Henley Street south to the proposed detention pond behind the Glenview Methodist Church.  As schedules and work progress allows, the contractor will begin installing the new water main along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. Residents will be notified prior to any scheduled water shut-downs.

As we have had in the past week, construction can be unpredictable. This is especially evident when it comes to your water service. The existing water main system is old; therefore, being replaced as part of the project. Unfortunately, during the construction, situations arise where the water main breaks or other malfunction occur which require the water main to be shut-off without prior notice. Should these instances occur, we will do our best to notify you as quickly as possible regarding water being shut-off and estimated time for repair. We appreciate your understanding in these situations.
       
Thank you again for your patience and understanding as the construction is well underway in your neighborhood.

Underground Utility Installation Continues along Henley Street

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street from Harlem Avenue to Washington Street.

The major work completed last week was installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer through the intersection of Harlem Avenue and Henley Street.

We apologize for delaying the roadway closure on Monday due to weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding as we closed the intersection on Tuesday and Wednesday to facilitate this work. Thank you for using the posted detour on these days. A full roadway closure is not anticipated at this intersection for the remainder of the project; however, additional work will be performed within the intersection that may cause significant travel delays in the coming weeks.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer at the same time between Harlem Avenue and Washington Street.

A second underground utility crew will begin working next week along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. This crew will be installing the storm and sanitary sewer services to the residents along the block.  This crew will also install the storm sewer along Lehigh Avenue north of Henley Street. The contractor may also begin installing water main along Henley Street, starting at Lehigh Avenue. If this work is started and a water main shut down is required, residents will be notified prior  to the water being turned off.

The Village would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during the intersection closure last week and throughout the project.

Harlem Road Closure Delayed

Due to the weather conditions and amount of rainfall over-night, the contractor is unable to perform the work through the intersection of Henley Street and Harlem Avenue.

The intersection is currently scheduled to be closed and work performed on Tuesday, August 12th & Wednesday, August 13th. The timing of the work is dependent on the weather conditions.

We apologize for the inconvenience and delay in schedule.

Intersection of Harlem Avenue and Henley Street to be Closed on Monday and Tuesday

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street from Lehigh Avenue to Harlem Avenue.

On Monday, August 11th, and Tuesday, August 12th, the intersection of Harlem Avenue and Henley Street will be closed to all traffic as the contractor installs the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer through the intersection.  We understand this will have a large effect on the north-south traffic along Harlem Avenue and the east-west traffic along Henley Street. A detour route for Harlem Avenue will be set-up utilizing Central Road, Shermer Road, and Glenview Road. Advanced warning signs have been posted and detour route signs will be installed prior the intersection being closed to through traffic. The intersection closure is scheduled to be in effect from 7 AM to 5 PM on Monday and Tuesday, depending on the work progress. The intersection will be opened to through traffic during the overnight hours.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer at the same time west of Harlem Avenue.

Once the mainline storm sewer and sanitary sewer work is completed along Henley Street from Lehigh Avenue to Harlem Avenue, a separate crew will begin installing the storm and sanitary sewer services to the residents along the block. Currently, the contractor has been making temporary service connections to the new sanitary sewer prior to the replacement of the sanitary sewer services to each home. During this process, the contractor will be excavating across the street; therefore, getting through Henley Street will be increasingly more difficult. The roadway will be open to traffic after working hours each day.

While the work continues along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue, residents in the area will be able to utilize the temporary construction roadway for accessing their homes.
 
We understand the closure of the intersection of Harlem Avenue and Henley Street will create significant delays to all residents in and around the construction site. We believe it is the quickest and most efficient way to get the work done in a timely manner. The Village would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during the intersection closure and throughout the project.

Storm Sewer and Sanitary Sewer Started along Henley Street

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  began installing the storm sewer improvements at the intersection of Lehigh Avenue and Henley Street. The contractor installed the first of two large junction chambers at the intersection of Lehigh Avenue and Henley Street. The second junction chamber will be installed at Henley Street and Washington Street.

The contractor then began to install the 48-inch storm sewer west along Henley Street from Lehigh Avenue towards Harlem Avenue.

At the same time the contractor is installing the new 48-inch storm sewer, they are also replacing the existing 8-inch clay sanitary sewer with a new 8-inch PVC sewer pipe. The reason the contractor is doing this is because the pipelines are in close enough proximity that it is easier to install at the same time vs. one at a time.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer at the same time.

Once the contractor has completed installing the storm sewer and sanitary sewer along Henley Street from Harlem to Lehigh, a separate crew will be on-site installing new water main in this same block. The storm and sanitary sewer installation crew will continue working west of Harlem on Henley Street, while the water main installation will be working behind them. This staging will continue throughout the construction process.  

While the work continues along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue, residents in the area will be able to utilize the temporary construction roadway for accessing their homes.

The Village understands the impacts and inconveniences the construction work has on the adjacent residents including dust, delays in getting around the area, and difficulty in getting to you homes. Please understand the Village will do everything possible to make the work progress a smoothly as possible to minimize these inconveniences.
