Parking Logistics: During construction the alleys will be closed and you will not have access to drive vehicles through the alley.  Any vehicles you need to use must be removed from the alley and parked on the street. The Contractor will provide notice when the alley is reopened.  Parking during the project will be permitted on adjacent streets.

Garbage Collection Logistics:Garbage pick-up will be conducted on the streets in front of your home during construction.  Place your existing roller carts at the parkway curb in front of your house. Refuse, recycling, and yard waste pickup will occur on your regular pickup day.

Scott Street Resurfacing (Seymour Avenue to Waveland Avenue)

Chicagoland Paving, Inc. is the Contractor that will be completing the work.  The work is being funded primarily with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, which are part of a federal grant program that the Village applied to and was awarded money from.

The project will primarily consist of grinding the top layers of asphalt, patching of the underlying pavement, and then a final overlay of the entire roadway with new asphalt.  Also included in the project is removal and replacement of selected portions of the curb and gutter, sidewalk, and driveways or carriage walks located behind the curb being replaced.

Schedule: Work began the week of May 11, 2020. Completion is expected before June 30th. Landscape restoration of the parkways will be completed after the paving portion of the project is complete.

Driveway Access: Some homes will have their curb and gutter removed which will affect their driveway. This means you will not have access to your driveway or garage during this time.  If work is being done that will interrupt access to your driveway, you will receive a notice from the Contractor at least one day in advance.  The interruption of access to your driveway could last up to 10 days but will likely require less time. 

Parking: During curb, gutter and driveway work, parking will be prohibited on the side of the street where the work is taking place. During this time, parking will be allowed on the other side of the street. We are asking residents to avoid street parking between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, to allow for a safer work environment for the Contractor and to assist roadway traffic flow.

There will be other days during the project, when the existing asphalt is being removed and when the two lifts of asphalt (one day for each lift) are placed, that parking will be prohibited on both sides of the street. The duration for each of these interruptions will be one day or less. “No Parking” signs will be posted on the street in advance.

IDOT River Road Resurfacing


River Road from Foster Ave. to IL 171 (1st Avenue), and Lawrence Ave. from River Road to Ridgewood Ave. - 4.4 miles of pavement milling, patching, resurfacing, ADA sidewalk repairs, shoulder and drainage improvements.


April 2020 through November 2020

What to Expect:

The contractor: 1) digs in the pavement to remove manhole lids, 2) grinds off the top 2-inches of asphalt, 3) digs in the pavement as needed to repair sewers and patch soft sections of pavement, 4) removes and replaces failed section of curb and gutter, 5) removes and replaces sidewalk at intersections to meet the new ADA requirements, 6) repaves the top 2-inches of asphalt, 7) replaces pavement striping. 

Since this project is a long section of road to be improved, the contractors work in sections.  It will be common to see barricades and lane closures while it appears no one is working.  Although it may look like no one is working, the contractors will be working on a different section of the project outside of the Village.
