This week Berger Excavating removed the existing curb, sidewalk and driveway pavement and installed a portion of the storm sewer in the work zone along the east side of Waukegan Rd.  Additionally, Berger installed the gravel base on Jefferson Ave.  A subcontractor for Berger Excavating also installed curb and sidewalk on Jefferson Ave.

Next week, Berger Excavating is scheduled to continue earth excavation and storm sewer work along the east side of Waukegan Rd.  Berger's concrete subcontractor is scheduled to install the remaining curb on Jefferson Ave.  Additionally, Berger's paving crew is scheduled to be in late next week or early the following week to pave Jefferson Ave.

Also next week, Berger will begin construction of the east side of the intersection of Waukegan Rd an Chestnut Ave.  This will consist of earth excavation, gravel base installation, and curb installation next week.  This work is scheduled to last for 10 days (weather permitting) at which time there will be no access to the east side of the intersection.
