Work has begun on the Modular Retaining Wall at the corner of Greenview and Arlington Heights. This should take all week to complete.
Once both these tasks are complete, the final lift of asphalt will be placed. As of right now, that is scheduled for Monday, October 8.

Thursday: Pave Alley
Next week: Sod and surface (hopefully!)
What's a structure adjustment?
All the structures (manholes) that are in the roadway were covered by the binder level of asphalt. The contractor comes back in, digs up the structure covers and raises them to the appropriate height, closing in the hole with concrete. So until the surface level is placed, the structure frames will be slightly higher than the road.

The contractor has been instructed to ramp the entrance to the alley and all driveways. The alley has also been compacted and is drivable. However, if you wish to park on the street, that will be allowed. The Itasca Police Department has been notified of the schedule. If you plan to park on the street, please notify the Police Department, giving your name, address, vehicle make, model, and license plate number for safety. The PD non-emergency telephone number is (630) 773-1004. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
REGARDING SPRINKLER SYSTEMS:We have been informed of two places where the sprinkler system was broken (711 Greenview Road and 405 Briar Place). If any other sprinkler systems have been broken due to the construction, please contact Kerry Megraw with your address and number of breaks. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (815) 459-1260. This work will be completed at a later date.

Thursday, August 9: Pour curb on above locations.
Friday, August 10: Remove, frame and pour driveways on above locations.
Monday, August 13: Access to driveways on above locations restored.
Please remember: this is a tentative schedule and always possible to change. The biggest factor is the weather, and this rain isn't helping out right now. We will do the best we can to keep everyone informed!
The contractor asks that residents park on nearby streets on the day they pour curb. Once the curb is poured, residents are allowed to park on that street.

Either way, the top of curb (where your grass meets the curb) to the bottom of the smaller sized stone that goes everywhere (under cut or not) measures 20". When we add one foot of under cut, we're talking 36" (three feet!). And that is why it seems so deep.

The schedule for construction has changed. The contractor will be grinding the pavement from Greenview Road and Briar Place starting on Tuesday, July 17, 2007. This will be followed by the excavation and removal of stone and subgrade from Greenview, commencing on Thursday, July 19, 2007. Access will remain on both streets with periodic closures of driveways and the roadway.
Once the street has been excavated, the contractor will install curb and gutter on one side of Greenview. Only after this has been done will excavation begin on Briar Place. Residents will receive notice before work begins on any curb and gutter.
