Update – 6/3/19

Last week storm sewer installation continued across from Bristol Trail and will be complete in the next couple of days. A second crew will start this week north of East Cuba Road. The two crews will work in tandem to complete the underground pipe installation from East Cuba Road to Greenwood Drive. New sanitary pipe is being installed in the same general area north of East Cuba Road. Work on the sanitary sewer will continue through the end of this week and be stopped until work in the ground improvement areas is complete. Rain over Memorial Day weekend and throughout last week prevented large scale earth excavation operations from moving forward. With a favorable forecast, these operations will resume this week. Work on the retaining wall south of Illinois Route 22 was also impacted. Concrete leveling pads for this wall are now planned to be poured this week. The pads serve as a base to place precast concrete wall panels on. Sheeting installation for the temporary sheet pile wall north and south of Buffalo Creek completed last week. Tie backs to help secure the wall are scheduled to be installed this week and will be followed by excavation of soils for the permanent wall.
