The major construction operations of the project are now completed. All roadways are paved with limited work remaining to be completed.

In areas of underground utility improvements (primarily storm sewer), the landscape will be restored with topsoil and sod. These areas will have topsoil installed and graded; however, sod will not be installed until mid-September when growing conditions are typically more favorable.

Due to limited work remaining, this will be the final blog post for the project. We hope you found the information provided helpful. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Village Project Manager, Adriana Webb, at 847-904-4414.

Thanks again for all your patience and hopefully you are satisfied with the work that was performed and are enjoying the new streets.
