This past week, the electrical subcontractor Elmund & Nelson installed the temporary traffic signal posts at the intersection of Waukegan Road and Chestnut Avenue.  Elmund and Nelson also removed a portion of the street lights that will be in conflict with construction which will be reinstalled after the road widening has taken place.  Additionally this past week, the tree removal subcontractor Homer Tree Service began removal of trees that will be in conflict with construction.

Next week, the general contractor Berger Excavating Contractors will be digging small holes in the parkways to determine existing utility location, the electrical subcontractor will continue removal of the existing streetlights along Waukegan and work on the temporary traffic signals, the tree removal subcontractor will continue tree removal, tree root pruning and tree trunk protection.
