Village Construction Projects


Current Construction Projects 

Staff has begun coordinating with contractors to complete several capital improvement projects, detailed in the Village's 10-Year Community Improvement Program (CIP). As we enter the 2018 construction season, stay tuned to the Weekly Construction Updates on this page, register for Glencoe CONNECT and subscribe to Village eNews for timely updates as these projects progress.

Construction Communication Survey

The Village is always looking for ways to improve our communication efforts, and as such, has developed a survey to gauge resident's satisfaction with our outreach during these projects. All response data will be kept anonymous and will be used to inform our future communication plans.

Should you have questions regarding this survey, please contact Management Analyst Adam Hall at ahall@villageofglencoe.org / (847) 461-1115.

Downtown Sidewalk Paver Restoration - COMPLETED

Downtown Sidewalk Paver Restoration Project Background

Fiscal Year 2019 marks the first year of a five-year Downtown Sidewalk Brick Paver Restoration Project. There is approximately 70,000 square feet of brick paver sidewalk in the downtown and this year’s program will restore 8,000 square feet on the north side of Park Avenue from Green Bay Road to Vernon Avenue. The scope of the work includes the removal of all brick pavers/border tiles, regrading of the stone sub-base and finally the resetting of the brick pavers/border tiles including the replacement of any that are stained or cracked. The Village is working with the contractor to limit the impact to businesses and patrons.

Residential Sidewalk Replacement Project - In Progress

Residential Sidewalk Replacement Project Background

The Village maintains over 73 miles of public sidewalk throughout the community. Each year, the Village replaces sidewalk square areas based on the structural condition of the concrete (cracking, spalling or deterioration), heaved sections (trip hazards), excessive sloping and poor drainage. The primary goal of the program is to maintain a safe and functional pedestrian sidewalk system.

Residential sidewalk in the Village is broken into three areas and is inspected on a 3-year cycle. This year, the replacement project will be focused on Area 2 as highlighted on the map at right. The Village estimates that we will replace approximately 30,000 square feet of sidewalk this year. 

  • Total Project Cost: $200,000
  • Project Contractor: Schroeder & Schroeder, Inc. 
  • Project Start Date: August 29, 2018
  • Project Completion Date: October 19, 2018
  • Project Manager: Anna Kesler, Village Engineer
  • Resident Impacts: Temporary sidewalk closures, Parkway restoration for impacted areas
  • Construction Update  - Week of September 10: The contractor has completed all removal and replacement of sidewalk squares in the project area.  Please be advised that parkways and driveways that were impacted by the sidewalk work will continue to be restored at the conclusion of the removal and replacement period, and occur over the next few weeks.

Water Plant SCADA System

Water Plant SCADA System Background

The SCADA system at the water plant was installed in 1996. It currently operates on a Windows XP platform through virtual mode on a Windows 7 computer, as Windows XP is no longer supported. The SCADA system is not compatible with newer operating systems and no updates have been performed to the Windows XP operating system since 2014, which puts Water Plant system operations at risk for a wide variety of issues. Functional improvements, including additional safety features as well as a complete update of all related system components will help to not only improve plant efficiency, but also provide improved system functionality, expansion and other necessary improvements intended to ensure the Village’s water utility is operating effectively, securely and capably, and will offer the flexibility to better manage reporting regulations.

Whitebridge Hill Road Water Main Replacement

Water Main Replacement Project Background

Fiscal Year 2019 improvements to the Village’s water distribution system (water mains and service lines) includes a water main replacement on Whitebridge Hill Road east of Sheridan Road and the elimination of a section of water main on Dell Place.

These projects were identified as needing replacement and removal in 2016 as part of a Water Distribution System Study, completed by Strand Associates. Read the full study here. The study identified segments of water main for replacement based on the analysis of the existing distribution system under peak demand, water main break data, and input from Village staff. Projects are prioritized using a number of factors including the ratio of breaks per 100 feet of pipe and areas with deficient fire flow. Annual distribution system improvements will be coordinated with other Village infrastructure improvements, such as sanitary sewer, storm sewer and street resurfacing. 

  • Total Project Cost: $160,000
  • Project Contractor: TBD
  • Project Start Date: TBD
  • Project Completion Date: TBD
  • Project Manager: Donald Kirk, General Superintendent
  • Resident Impacts: Temporary street and sidewalk closure, Short term water outage during switchover to new services.

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Program

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project Background

This year, sanitary sewer lining, sanitary manhole rehabilitation and the next phase of engineering for inflow/infiltration (I/I) compliance will occur in the area generally north of Dundee Road and west of the UP-North railroad tracks (extending somewhat further south and east in some locations as seen in the map at right).

The Village's sanitary sewer system consists of 40 miles of sanitary sewer main, 900 manholes and eight lift stations. Sanitary sewer lining is a trenchless technology that involves pulling a new liner through an old pipe. Through a process of inflating and curing the material, the pipe is rehabilitated. Lining sanitary sewer mains eliminates inflow and infiltration which contribute to charging the sanitary sewer and results in basement backups. The Village hired an engineering consultant in Fiscal Year 2018 to assist staff in selecting a targeted priority area within the Village system to perform detailed investigation through smoke testing, televising of sewer main, and physical inspections of manholes to check for (I/I).
