Gas and Electric Utility Improvements On-Going

DiMeo Brothers, Inc. from Elk Grove Village has been awarded the contract for installation of the water main, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, roadway reconstruction, and landscape restoration for Phase II of the Glenayre Park improvements. This is the same contractor that performed the work last year as part of the Phase I improvements.

Currently the gas (Nicor) and electric (ComEd) utilities are performing system upgrades and replacement of their entire facilities within the Phase II project area.

Due to the close proximity the contractors will be working and the need for the existing gas and electric lines to be removed to avoid conflicts with the proposed storm sewer improvements, it has been determined to wait until Nicor, ComEd, and AT&T have completed their work prior to beginning the village portion of the work. Currently we are anticipating all utilities to be completed with their work by May 15th.  

The anticipated start date for the underground utility (storm sewer, sanitary sewer, water main) phase of the project is mid-May and completed by mid-August.  The roadway reconstruction phase will follow the completion of the underground utility installation and is scheduled to be completed by in early October. Landscape restoration will follow completion of the roadway reconstruction. It is anticipated to have the final asphalt surface installed by early November. As much landscape restoration will be completed as weather conditions allow. Any remaining landscape restoration will be completed in the spring of 2016.

A detailed letter describing the improvements was sent to all residents within Phase II improvements area. If you did not receive this letter or have additional questions or concerns, please contact the Village Project Manager, Russ Jensen, at 847-904-4418 or
