Providence Village Subdivision Drainage Improvements

The Village of Gurnee Board of Trustees has directed the Engineering Division to undertake drainage improvement projects in the Providence Village Subdivision in response to frequent complaints of standing water and erosion in the drainage swales. 

Due to the size of the project the work effort will be split into multiple years. Areas south of Middle Road were budgeted for work this year and Engineering staff has prepared a scope of work. Areas north of Middle Road will be conducted in the second phase of the project.

All proposed work is expected to occur within the public utility and drainage easements, however, numerous properties have personal effects in these easement areas such as plantings, fencing, sheds, etc. that will need to be removed to allow access with machinery. Due to these impacts, Mayor Kovarik and the Engineering Division wish to invite you to a public meeting on Monday, September 17, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at the Village Hall (325 N O'Plaine Road) to discuss the overall project.
