This week Berger Excavating continued installation of water main along Waukegan Road.  Additionally, Berger chlorinated portions of the new water main that will soon go into service.  A crew was also onsite prepping and surveying the Easy Leg of Waukegan Rd. & Chestnut Ave. for driveway and roadway work that will take place.

Next week Berger is scheduled to begin driveway work at the Taco Bell and will begin removal of existing pavement on the south side of Jefferson Ave.  During roadway work on Jefferson traffic will be limited to westbound traffic only.  This work will take approximately 2-1/2 weeks to complete.
