Alley Update

Unfortunately, the contractor was unable to pave the alley yesterday as scheduled. The date has been pushed back to sometime next week. We will notify you as soon as we have been informed of the date.

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.

Greenview Road and Briar Place Update

As I am sure you noticed, the binder level of asphalt has been placed, completed yesterday. The contractor will be performing parkway restoration and manhole adjustments over the next several days and then the surface level of asphalt will be placed. When we know the schedule for surface placement, we will inform you. When the asphalt work is being done, we recommend that you park on other streets for the day. The contractor will be placing a prime coat (sticky tack) down before paving. This tack can stick to your vehicle wheels and track onto your driveways. Once again, we will send out a notice with further instructions once the date has been set.

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 or call (815) 459-1260. This work will be completed at a later date.

Schedule changes due to rain.

Due to the amount of rain in the area over the past week, paving has been pushed back to next week. As of right now, the binder will be placed on Wednesday of next week (Aug. 22). Thank you to all the residents for their patience and cooperation. I wish that asphalt was down all ready, it is just completely impossible with all the water!

Tentative concrete schedule

Wednesday, August 8: Remove driveway ramps and set string line for curb installation on the North side of Greenview and the East side of Briar Place.

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.

Installing Curb & Gutter

As you may have noticed, the contractor installed curb and gutter on the south side of Greenview. Once the curb & gutter is installed, the contractor will remove and replace driveways and sidewalk (only some sidewalk is being removed and replaced). Once the driveway is poured, it will be 3 days before you should drive on it.
