To those residents that had brick or stone driveways, you are free to re-install those now. As stated in letters and notices that were sent before the project began, any brick/stone work is the responsibility of the resident.
Residents: Please keep your eyes out for a survey from the Village. The Village really appreciates any responses/comments you may have to better improve future year projects. Thanks for all your cooperation throughout the work.

The contractor will follow up immediately with the placing of 2 inches of asphalt on Thursday and Friday. Of course paving is weather contingent, if paving cannot start Thursday, then it will begin the next available dry day.
Access to driveways will still be available, although there may be short delays during the paving process. Please adjust schedules accordingly. We will be in contact with the school buses to notify them of the schedule.

After the contractor has completed paving the first layer of asphalt on all streets, work will begin to remove all of the debris from the site, grade the parkways and place topsoil, in preparation for sod. The sod work will not begin until September, when temperatures are cool enough to ensure that the sod does not die in the heat of the day.

Underground utility work is nearing completion. All work that remains is located on the north half of Glen Oak. This includes water services and sanitary manholes. This work should be completed by the end of next week, weather permitting.

DiMeo is presently grading the road in preparation for asphalt paving. The asphalt paving subcontractor, Arrow Road Construction, will be onsite in the next few days to complete the prep work for the roadway on East Ridgewood, Pleasant, and West Ridgewood (south of Pleasant only) for paving with asphalt. The schedule is to place the binder lift (bottom layer) of asphalt on those roads sometime in the next week. Please plan accordingly when coming and going on any day paving is taking place; residents may need to wait a few minutes or find a different route. Thanks for understanding!

Nicor Gas was on site to relocate the gas main on West Ridgewood this week to make way for the new storm sewer. Their work is now complete and they have moved off site.
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
DiMeo Bros. Construction has successfully completed all water main installation onsite. Though a few water services do remain to be completed, as well as two final connections to existing water main, work on water main is largely complete. Storm sewer installation has resumed starting at the intersection of Pleasant Lane and East Ridgewood Lane. Construction of storm sewer and drainage structures will continue for the next several weeks. As DiMeo Bros. Construction works down the street they will be removing asphalt pavement as they go. Due to the nature of the work being completed, road closures are necessary and will be posted as such.

Each house will receive an inlet in the front yard, within Right Of Way, to be connected the storm sewer. Residents will be receiving a stake, painted green, with a note of instructions for the location of drainage structures along the parkway. Drainage structures are typically placed in an area in the parkway that is low and holds water, so that these areas will drain properly. Connections can then be made by homeowners to drain other areas of the property, or connect sump pumps
Water main is now installed on Ridgewood East. It has been pressure tested and service installation on that road will begin this week. Services have been completed along the south end of Ridgewood West and Pleasant. All that remains for water main installation is along the north end of Ridgewood West, Glen Oak Drive and Linden Lane.
The contractor will continue to work on water main, with the plan to have all water main and service lines installed by mid next week. Once that is complete, work will continue on the storm sewer, which has been installed up to Pleasant and Ridgewood East.

Water Main Installation
The crew completed water main installation along Ridgewood West (south from Pleasant) at the end of last week. The water main was pressure tested and passed. A pressure test is when the newly installed water main is filled with water to a pressure of 150 psi (pounds per square inch). The water main needs to hold that pressure for 2 hours. If the pressure were to drop, that could signal a leak. Leaks are nothing to worry about in this stage because the water main has not been connected yet, so they’re easy to fix. After the pressure test, a water main is chlorinated to get it nice and clean. Then it is tested (to make sure there’s not chlorine remaining in the system), and flushed numerous times. Now that the water main is installed and tested along Ridgewood West (south of Pleasant to Wildwood), the contractor will begin installing house services. This will involve a short-duration water shut off to each house, but residents will be notified when that will happen. This work should begin on Monday, weather permitting.
The crew that has been working on
A Nicor crew should be out on Monday at Kenilworth and Balmoral to lower a gas main.
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
The water main along Kenilworth and Balmoral will need to be shut down at 9 AM on Thursday, May 14, 2009 for approximately 4 hours. Public Works will be distributing notices to those residents affected. Thank you for your understanding!

Water Main Installation
Water main installation has continued on Ridgewood Lane West, south from Pleasant. The new water main will connect to the existing water main at Wildwood. Once the connection is made, the crew will start installing water main along Pleasant.
Construction along Kenilworth
The crew that is working on Kenilworth is doing a couple different things right now. Storm sewer installation is almost complete on Balmoral (just need to do a connection at the intersection of Kenilworth), and continues on Kenilworth. The water main shut down that happened yesterday, May 7th, was done because the water main connection on Kenilworth has to go under the storm sewer. So the crew made the connection, placed a little bit of water main, and turned the water back on. They will continue on water main installation. From Kenilworth, they will proceed north on Ridgewood Lane East.
Di Meo will be placing water main on Pleasant next week. The bus company has been alerted that there may be short delays, but the crew WILL accommodate them.
The bus that runs along Ridgewood Lane East will be rerouted on Wednesday, May 13th. Please be looking for an update from the bus company. We are doing everything we can to accommodate the buses and to make sure everyone gets to school smoothly. Thanks for understanding!

A second crew began working on Tuesday, April 28th. They started watermain installation at the intersection of Sunset Ridge Rd and Pleasant Lane. They will first install watermain on Ridgewood West, south from Pleasant.
