Update – 09/16/2020
Work on the project was slowed for several weeks as we waited for ComEd to relocate their underground facilities out of conflict with the noise wall south of Bristol Trail Road. The facility was moved just before the Labor Day holiday. We were able to find a rain-free window last week to jog southbound Quentin Road traffic east so work on the wall could begin. Crews will begin drilling the foundations this week and anticipate installing the columns and panels next week. The adjacent sidewalk, topsoil and landscaping work will be scheduled after the wall is compete. This work will take several weeks to complete and after which southbound traffic will be returned to the outermost lane.
After traffic is returned to the outermost lanes, the final asphalt surface will be placed. We are currently anticipating this work to begin in mid-October. This will be followed by placement of the permanent pavement markings, final landscaping and turning on the new traffic signals. Other work that is anticipated is a structural concrete liner that will be placed in an existing culvert that crosses under Quentin Road, north of East Cuba Road. Decorative landscaping stone is being installed between the noise abatement walls and concrete sidewalk. The stone provides a low maintenance decorative surface.
