The purpose of this newsletter is to inform you that the City of West Chicago has awarded the 2014 Alta Vista Gardens Roadway Rehabilitation Project (Project) to A-Lamp Concrete Contractors, Inc. Based upon an updated schedule provided by the contractor, construction is scheduled to begin during the week of Monday, October 27, 2014, and is anticipated to be completed by June 30, 2015, weather depending.
The Project includes roadway and storm sewer rehabilitation in the Alta Vista Gardens Neighborhood, along the street north of Forest Avenue and south of Church Street and Ann Street. The Project’s work generally consists of pavement milling, patching, and resurfacing, storm sewer structure improvement, concrete curb and gutter replacement with depressed driveway access, and sidewalk replacement at intersections for ADA compliance.
The Project’s local road improvement is funded by both the City and the DuPage County Community Development Commission & the US Department of Housing and Urban Development through a Community Development Block Grant.
Driveway access may be periodically restricted during construction. Please note all construction activities are scheduled between 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday. Traffic will be restricted during construction hours, but all streets will be open to traffic at the end of each business day.
Please note that once the curb and gutter is removed for replacement, the United States Postal Service may choose to stop mail service to your mail box. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate mail delivery, but if service is stopped, mail will be held and readily available for pick up at the post office located at 1130 W. Washington St. If mail service is stopped, it will only be temporary (approximately a few weeks) until the new curb and gutter is installed.
Traffic control signs will be posted prior to and during construction notifying residents of the proposed construction and/or detour routes.
As the work progresses, the City will update you on the project’s status. Please visit www.westchicago.org periodically for the latest construction news update. If you should have any questions regarding the Alta Vista Gardens Roadway Rehabilitation Project, please contact:
