The past two weeks Berger Excavating and their subcontractors has been working on punch list work on the project.  This consisted of replacing signage that had been damaged during the winter, minor curb repairs, streetlight testing and  completing the final touches on sanitary, storm and water main related items.

Next week Berger Excavating is scheduled to complete the remaining punch list items.

Saturday (4/12/14) Berger Excavating was on site making the final sanitary sewer repair which could not be completed until the new traffic signals were operational and the temporary traffic signals had been removed.

Last week Berger Excavating was removing temporary sidewalk installed over the winter and starting to clean up the project.  The landscaping subcontractor was also on site completing the remaining sod and mulch.  Also, the concrete subcontractor was on site replacing damaged sidewalk and curb.

This week Berger Excavating is scheduled to begin punch list work, which they anticipate taking a couple of weeks.  Additionally, the electrical subcontractor is scheduling activation of the street lights with ComEd.

On 3/19/14 the electrical contractor returned to the site and began minor work on the traffic signals and street lights.  Due to freezing temperatures some of the equipment was still frozen below the surface.  The contractor installed the traffic signal posts and mast arms during the week of 3/19/14.

 

Last week the contractor was able to start pulling wire through the underground conduits for the traffic signals and installed the traffic signal heads. 

 

This week the contractor is continuing installation of street light and traffic signal wires.  Weather permitting they will start installing street lights late this week or early next week.


The new traffic signals are scheduled to be activated on April 7, 2014.

 

Upon completion of electrical work Berger Excavating will return to the site to complete the final sanitary sewer repair, the concrete contractor will complete the remaining minor concrete items and the landscaper will complete the topsoil and sodding.

Two weeks ago Berger Excavating was onsite grading parkways in preparation for topsoil installation early in the week.  Late that week, the landscaping subcontractor was onsite installing trees in various locations on the project and topsoil Waukegan Rd.  The landscape subcontractor also began sod installation on the east side of Waukegan Rd.  Additionally, two weeks ago the electrical subcontractor continued work on street lighting items including handholes and foundations.

 

Last week the electrical subcontractor was onsite early in the week continuing work on street lighting items.  Additionally, the electrical subcontractor changed the traffic signal timing at the intersection of Waukegan Rd. and Chestnut Ave. to reflect the final timing of the traffic signals.  Due to cold temperatures late in the week, no work took place onsite.

 

This week the electrical subcontractor is scheduled to continue working on street lighting and traffic signal items.  The electrical subcontractor intends to have the new traffic signals installed and operational before the New Year if weather and temperatures will allow, with street lighting to be completed in January.

 

The Village of Glenview has met with ComEd to coordinate the relocation of the large green utility box located on the east side of Waukegan Road south of Pleasant Lane.  ComEd has completed the design necessary to relocate the box and construction required for relocation is scheduled for January.
