Monday, December 16, 2013

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.

Next week, the concrete subcontractor is scheduled to be installing concrete sidewalk in various locations that were previously gapped due to conflicts, these locations could not be installed last week due to cold temperatures.  The landscaping subcontractor is also scheduled to be onsite next week grading and installing topsoil on the east side of Waukegan Rd. 

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 will begin the design necessary to relocate the box. A construction schedule is yet to be determined.

Asphalt Surface Paving On-Going and Complete Soon.

This past week Berger Excavating was on-site performing manhole adjustments within the asphalt pavement in preparation for asphalt surface paving. Berger Excavating also began landscape grading and general site clean-up prior to topsoil installation.

Peter Baker, the paving sub-contractor, was on-site installing the surface layer of various asphalt driveways along the project site. The contractor started on the north end of the project on the west side of the street and completed the asphalt driveways to Chestnut Avenue.

Peter Baker began paving the asphalt surface along Waukegan Road on Friday, November 15th. The contractor will continue to pave the asphalt surface along Waukegan Road, Chestnut Avenue, Jefferson Avenue, and Pleasant Lane on Saturday, November 16th. Depending on weather, the asphalt roadway paving should be completed by Monday, November 18th. The paving sub-contractor should have all asphalt driveway paving completed by mid-week.

Elmund Nelson, the electrical contractor, was on-site last week continuing to install the street lighting and traffic signal systems, including installing the detector loops for the traffic signals within the pavement.

Next week, Peter Baker will complete the remaining asphalt paving of the roadways and driveways.

Berger Excavating will be on-site continuing to grade the existing landscape and perform general site clean-up.

Precision Pavement Marking is scheduled to be on-site mid-week to perform the pavement striping along the entire project site.

Berquist, the concrete sub-contractor, will be on-site pouring some additional concrete sidewalk that was skipped previously due to other work in the area.

Elmund Nelson will be on-site continuing to install the street lighting and traffic signal systems. Once the asphalt pavement is installed and pavement markings are completed, the temporary traffic signal timings will be adjusted to a more favorable condition to allow better turning movements. The electrical sub-contractor may also begin re-installing the street lights along the roadway.

We apologize for the lengthy delays the past few weeks as the contractor has been working within the driving lanes on a more consistent basis. We appreciate your patience and understanding during the construction operations. We understand it has been a long construction project and navigating through the intersection has been difficult throughout the summer and fall. The traffic congestion should be reduced in the near future as the project is nearing the end.

Friday, November 1, 2013


This week Berger Excavating continued grading in various locations along Waukegan Rd.  Also, this week Berger’s asphalt subcontractor, Peter Baker & Sons, removed existing asphalt surface on Waukegan Road, Chestnut Avenue, Pleasant Lane, and Jefferson Avenue by grinding method.  Berger’s electrical subcontractor, Elmund & Nelson, was installing electrical handholes for streetlights in various locations.    Additionally, the landscape subcontractor, Gary Weiss, was installing the retaining wall on Chestnut Avenue.

Next week, Berger Excavating is scheduled to be removing pavement in several locations to patch the existing pavement base course and adjust utility structures located in the pavement after the first layer of asphalt is installed.  Peter Baker & Sons is scheduled to begin installation of asphalt on Waukegan Road, Chestnut Avenue, Pleasant Lane, and Jefferson Avenue early next week and later in the week Peter Baker & Sons will begin installation of the final layer of driveway pavement on all driveways on the project.  Elmund & Nelson will also be on site next week continuing to install concrete foundations and handholes for streetlights. 

Please note that during asphalt paving operations next week, there will be periods of extreme delays.  We thank you in advance for your patience during these operations.

Change in Traffic Pattern Coming Week of October 21st

Starting next week, northbound traffic along Waukegan Road will be limited to two lanes with no designated left turn lane at Chestnut Avenue. The right lane will be a dedicated through lane, the left lane will be a left turn and through lane. The northbound traffic will also be shifted closer to the new concrete curb & gutter. Southbound traffic along Waukegan Road will continue to have the same number of lanes, but will be shifted closer to the new concrete curb & gutter. Chestnut Avenue will also have the east bound left turn lane closed. Pavement striping will be changed to delineate the new lane configurations.  The temporary traffic signals will also be adjusted to accommodate the reduction and shifting of lanes. 

Changeable Message Boards will be installed along Waukegan Road to notify drivers of the change in traffic pattern and reduction of turning lanes.

We apologize for the inconvenience these changes will cause and understand some additional traffic delays will be expected. Please understand the Village is committed to ensuring the work is completed as quickly as possible and the full lane designations will be restored as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and patience during the construction operations.

Work along West Side of Waukegan Road is Nearing End

This past week Berger Excavating continued to excavate and prepare for asphalt driveway installation and concrete curb & gutter, driveways, and sidewalks along the west side of Waukegan Road and the south side of Chestnut Avenue. The asphalt sub-contractor, Peter Baker & Sons, completed installing the asphalt binder course for the remaining asphalt driveways along Waukegan Road and Chestnut Avenue. The electrical sub-contractor, Elmund-Nelson, excavated for and poured concrete pole foundations for street lighting and traffic signals and hand-holes. The concrete sub-contractor, Berquist, performed forming and pouring of concrete curb & gutter, sidewalks, and driveways at miscellaneous locations throughout the project site.

Next week, the work will transition from the west side of the Waukegan Road to the center of the roadway for the construction of the center line median, traffic signal hand-holes, and other miscellaneous items. Up to this point, the work zone was primarily limited to the east and west sides of the roadway. The transition of the work zone from the outside edges to the center of the roadway will create some additional challenges and require a shift in the traffic pattern.

Once the work within the center of the lanes is completed, the asphalt milling and paving process will begin.
