Update – 11/25/19
Because of the snow and ground conditions, there was no road construction work the week of November 11th.
Last week, pavement and existing storm sewer pipes were removed at select locations on Quentin Road to facilitate retaining wall construction. Erosion control measures were installed on the west side of Quentin Road throughout the project limits. The final concrete ADA ramps on the east side of Quentin Road were poured at Boschome Drive and Greenwood Drive. Hot-mix asphalt was paved on East Cuba Road and the westbound lanes were striped to accommodate separate left and right turn lanes. Pavement markings throughout the project were restriped with a higher durability epoxy paint for the winter period.
Work anticipated this week includes earthwork in preparation for retaining wall construction and temporary soil stabilization.
Nicor gas crews continued removing the 18” gas line that was retired last May. Removal efforts started near West Cuba Road and have progressed to south of Bristol Trail. This work will continue through the end of the year.
ComEd is almost finished removing aerial cables and poles on the west side of Quentin Road between East and West Cuba Roads. These overhead lines were relocated to the west side of Quentin Road this past summer.
