This past week the contractor performed landscape grading along the project site.
On Wednesday, August 28th, a resident meeting was conducted to discuss possible traffic calming islands and pavement markings along Colfax Avenue at the Nora Avenue and Nottingham Avenue intersections. As a result of that meeting, the Village is moving forward with the construction of the proposed traffic calming measures.
The work along Colfax Avenue will also include concrete curb & gutter repairs and resurfacing from Harlem Avenue to Waukegan Road. The Colfax Avenue improvements are anticipated to begin in the near future once final plans are prepared and negotiations with the contractor are completed.
Depending on the weather conditions, the contractor may begin installing sod. Otherwise, the contractor will wait until the weather is cooler for more favorable growing conditions.
The final asphalt pavement surface layer will not be installed until all landscape restorations are completed and Colfax Avenue is ready for asphalt pavement.
We appreciate all of your patience while the Colfax Avenue improvements are being finalized.
