Paving prep begins

Rollins Road Gateway Construction


Work is continuing on the south leg of IL Rte. 83. The stone base will be trimmed to its final grade by the end of the day. The week of 11/24 will see the contractor placing reinforcing baskets and prepping the area for paving. The paving may start as early as 11/26 or could be pushed back to 12/1. Once the paving is underway, it will take about two weeks to complete. That means we should be able to open the intersection of Rollins Road/IL Rte 83 back up the week of 12/15.

The cold has slowed progress down. We will still be able to pave in the cold, but it means extra precautions must be taken to prevent the stone and concrete from freezing. The good news is that ComEd is now clear of our work, so we only have the weather to contend with.

Throughout the rest of the site, the contractor is continuing to work on a retaining wall east of Hainesville. This retaining wall will allow ComEd and NICOR to service their underground transmission lines that run the east-west overhead towers, while giving us as large an area as we need for the new retention pond being dug south of Rollins Road and east of Hainesville.

Elsewhere, the contractor is installing some of the underground facilities for new traffic signals and otherwise buttoning up the site for winter.
