This week Berger Excavating completed earth excavation and storm sewer installation along the east side of Waukegan Road.  Additionally, Berger Excavating installed the gravel base in the east leg of the intersection of Waukegan Rd. and Chestnut Ave.  The concrete subcontractor, Berquist & Zimmerman, was onsite this week installing curb and gutter and the asphalt subcontractor, Peter Baker & Sons, was onsite installing the asphalt binder course in the east leg of the intersection of Waukegan Rd. and Chestnut Ave.  The east leg of the intersection was opened for traffic on Friday morning.

Next week Berger Excavating is scheduled to install the gravel base along the east side of Waukegan Road in preparation for curb and gutter and asphalt associated with the roadway widening.  Additionally, Berger is scheduled to complete the remaining sanitary sewer repair on Waukegan Rd.  The concrete subcontractor is scheduled to install curb and gutter on Wednesday or Thursday of next week on the east side of Waukegan Rd. and if time allows Jefferson Ave.  During the installation of curb and gutter it will be necessary to close driveways to install the curb across the driveway entrance.  During this process, if a business has two driveways, one driveway will be closed at a time for approximately 1 week each.  If a business has only one driveway, then half of the driveway will be closed for approximately 1 week and then the other half will be closed for approximately 1 week.
