2014 Crack Sealing Program
What Is the Crack Sealing Program?
Crack sealing is a process of routing the cracks, cleaning the cracks, and then finally sealing the cracks. This keeps the moisture out of the sub-base to extend the life of the pavement. The sealer will take about ten minutes to dry. Streets will be swept within 48 hours of the work to clean up the debris from routing. Residents are asked to refrain from parking on the roadway while the work is being completed on their street until sweeping of the entire street is completed. Download the map  to see which Village streets are a part of the 2014 program.
If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Division at 847-599-7550 between the hours 7:30 am and 4:00 pm.
2014 Road Construction Updates
2014 Street Maintenance Project
The majority of the concrete work has been completed in Area 1, Area 3, and Area 5 and access to driveways in the areas will take place by the middle of the week. Concrete work is progressing in Area 2 (Fairway Ridge) and is expected to be completed by the end of the week.
Surface milling will be ongoing in Area 1 (Ravinia Woods and Korbel Dr.). Once the milling is completed, the contractor will begin the patching operations and follow up with the paving of the leveling binder and the final surface course.
Culvert installations will continue along Blackstone Ave., and Harper Ave. (Area 4) later this week.
2014 Street Maintenance Project
Starting this week sub-contractor operations will begin on this project. Storm sewer installations on Lawrence Ave., Shadowrock Ct., and Greenbriar Ct. will be performed to improve drainage of the roadway and provide sump pump connections to the Village storm sewer system. Staging work and traffic control signage will be erected in the Ravinia Woods and the Elysian Fields (Area 1) to facilitate the start of the curb and sidewalk repairs. The first step in the curb and sidewalk work will be saw cutting of the areas to be replaced. If work is scheduled to be performed on curb or sidewalk that may affect access to your driveway, a door tag will be placed on your door notifying of the day this will occur.
