2019 Construction Updates
OLD RAND SANITARY SEWER IMPROVEMENTS (LAST UPDATE 6-12-2019)
Work crews are currently on site paving Old Rand Road. Residents should be aware that street paving is a significant operation with constant trucking and many moving pieces of equipment. However, residents will be able to drive on the fresh pavement by the end of the paving day.
After completion of paving operations, the Village should be able to remove most of the barricades and allow for two-way traffic on North Old Rand Road by the day’s end. Other items that will be addressed are minor punch-list items and landscaping; the contractor plans to address these utilizing daytime flaggers to allow for the area to start returning to normal traffic conditions.
The new sewer main is tested and active with all existing services connected and flowing.
As part of ongoing efforts to extend the life of our aging infrastructure, the Village has contracted with Insituform Technologies USA to install cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining in large diameter sanitary sewers in your neighborhood. This process allows for the trenchless installation of a protective pipe liner with limited ground disturbance to the surrounding area.
For this work, the contractor will be accessing the manholes located along streets and in the public utility easements in the area. These manholes will be accessed for cleaning prior to the lining, then once again for lining activities, and finally for inspection. You may notice temporary piping and cables laid between manholes during construction operations or overnight between operations. If piping is laid across driveways or streets, Insituform will be providing access via temporary ramps for vehicles as needed.
Typically, each section of sewer to be lined will require up to twelve (12) hours to complete, generally between the hours of 7 am & 7 pm. During this time, the sewer connection to some homes will be sealed off. Homeowners will be asked to make limited use of toilet facilities and refrain from doing laundry until the service connection can be reestablished. Additional precautions residents can take during the period of service interruption include keeping toilet lids down and pouring 1-2 cups of water into basement floor drains to keep any odors from entering the home (this recommendation can be done regularly).
Manhole access will be intermittent as construction activities progress. The contractor, Insituform Technologies USA and/or the Construction Manager will attempt to contact you in person before to accessing the easements through backyards (if necessary). Prior to limited water usage period, affected homes will receive a white door hanger informing of the date and times of service interruption. (If work is canceled for that date a red door hanger will notify homeowners of the cancellation).

Bristol Trail Lift Station (LAST UPDATE 6-13-2019)
The Village has a sanitary sewer lift station located on Bristol Trail Road which is in need of repair. In order to make these necessary repairs, wastewater will be by-passed via pumps from the lift station to a sanitary sewer manhole located off Stanton Road.
At two locations, pumps are set up to convey wastewater. The road will be closed until further notice. The map below indicates the location of the pumping and road closure.
Work started on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 and bypass pumping operations will continue until completed on Friday, June 14, 2019.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we do appreciate your time and consideration for this necessary lift station repair.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Public Works Utilities Supervisor Dave Pearson at 847.540.1696, extension 8009.
HARVEST DRIVE SANITARY SEWER LINING (PROJECT COMPLETE)
Work has been completed on in early June on lining the 30 inch sewer under Harvest Drive and a portion of Old Mill Grove Road.
WATER MAIN IMPROVEMENTS (LAST UPDATE 6-14-2019)
The Village is contracting with Vian Construction of Elk Grove Village to install 900 feet of 8-inch water main pipe on Kim Trail and 400 feet of 6-inch water main pipe on Cherokee Road. The project scope includes fire hydrants, valves, and connections to the existing water main and water services. The design also includes the installation of a water main loop on Cherokee Road to improve water main quality.
Portions of the work will be completed under the pavement and sidewalk, requiring asphalt and concrete patching / landscape restoration upon complete.
Work is not scheduled to begin until later this summer.
2019 Summer Road Resurfacing (LAST UPDATE 6-12-2019)
The Village is using over $1.5 million of Non-Home Rule Sales Tax to fund the annual road resurfacing program for 2019. Locations identified for this year's program includes Old Mill Grove, Countryside, Old Rand Road, Kuechmann park, and Ash Street, which covers 3.3 miles of local streets.
Locations are chosen based on engineering studies of pavement conditions and rates of deterioration. Work is not scheduled to begin until after the July 4th holiday.
Work includes pavement resurfacing, concrete repair, and utility structure repairs. Once complete, the new surfaces should last 15-20 years without the need for additional resurfacing.
