Asphalt Surface Paving to be Completed

This past week the paving sub-contractor, Peter Baker & Sons, performed the pavement milling of Colfax Avenue from Waukegan Road to Harlem Avenue. The paving contractor also swept the existing asphalt surfaces and installed the asphalt prime or tack coat on all the roadways in preparation for asphalt surface paving. DiMeo Brothers was on-site during the week performing some miscellaneous repair work identified during the final walk-through.

Asphalt surface paving of Nora Avenue, Neva Avenue, and Colfax Avenue is scheduled to begin on Saturday, October 19th, depending on weather conditions. Parking will not be allowed on any of the roadways scheduled to be paved on the day of paving. Traffic along Colfax Avenue will be allowed, but will be congested during the paving operations and we suggest alternates are utilized. Access to homes south of Colfax Avenue from Waukegan Road to Harlem Avenue will be maintained throughout the process. We ask for your cooperation during the paving process and request you minimize, to the greatest extent possible, the number of trips within the construction area.
Additional information regarding parking restrictions and access will be provided to residents in the area. 

The landscape sub-contractor is also scheduled to be on-site next week to complete the remaining sod restoration along Colfax Avenue.

The pavement markings alolng Colfax Avenue are also scheduled to be compelted next week.
The long construction season you have all endured is nearing its completion with the paving of the asphalt surface. We request your cooperation during these final stages of construction.
