Storm Water Drainage Improvement Projects


Weekly Construction Update: Friday, July 21

Storm Water Drainage Improvement Projects

  • After some delays due to inclement weather, Berger Excavating has resumed pipe installations on Grove Street today. In the upcoming week, residents may expect to see continued work on Grove Street and Park Avenue (neat the intersection of Park Avenue and Greenwood Avenue).
  • Residents near the intersection of Madison Avenue and Greenwood Avenue can expect to see the mobilization of the paving contractor. Initial work will involve making of pavement to be patched, followed by pavement preparation, and ending in pavement patching. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as these and other major Community Improvement Program (CIP) projects move along this summer. 


Storm Water Drainage Projects Background
A series of storm water improvement projects were proposed after a comprehensive study, conducted in 2014, found that the storm water collection infrastructure in the Skokie Ridge and Terrace Court neighborhoods, Greenwood Avenue Basin, the Madison Avenue Basin and the Hazel Avenue Underpass was insufficient to ensure proper drainage of our streets during/after rain events. Voters approved a bond referendum in April 2015 supporting these projects, and in 2016 improvements were made within the Skokie Ridge and Terrace Court basins.

The remaining three projects are slated for this summer per the following schedule:

  • Madison Avenue Basin: Late May through late June
  • Greenwood Avenue/Park Avenue Basin: Early June through late July
  • Hazel Avenue Underpass: August

The Village selected contractor Berger Excavating Contractors, Inc. of Wauconda, Illinois to complete this project, however questions can be forwarded to Village Engineer Anna Kesler at akesler@villageofglencoe.org / (847) 461-1119. Please note, that neighbors to the project may experience restricted day-time access to driveways and there may be minimal impact to the street, parkway, curb and gutter.

More details will be posted here and shared via Glencoe CONNECT, Village eNews and social media as they become available.  

Water Main Replacement

Improvements to water main infrastructure are triggered by one of three reasons: 1) replacement due to age/deterioration of existing pipe, 2) replacement to accommodate increased residential supply needs or 3) addition or replacement to accommodate increased firefighting supply needs.

The Village has four water main improvements slated for 2017:

  • Sunset Lane: Increase fire flow
  • Wentworth Avenue/Mary Street: Loop water main due to increased residential needs
  • Mary Street: Increase pipe size due to increased residential needs
  • Brookside Lane: Increase fire flow

Street Resurfacing


Weekly Construction Update: Friday, July 21

Street Resurfacing Projects

  • Concrete replacement work (curb and gutter/sidewalk) throughout the Village is well underway. All removal of existing concrete has been completed; the contractor is now in full replacement mode.
  • Grinding of existing pavement in preparation for resurfacing is anticipated to start in approximately two weeks. The paving contractor will notify Village staff weekly with the streets which will be affected the following week. These updates will be communicated to all residents so that motorists may find alternate routes.

In 2016, the Village of Glencoe retained Infrastructure Management Services (IMS) to assess the surface conditions of all public roadways maintained by the Village. Taking into account Fiscal Year 2018 budget quantities, Village staff used the condition assessment data to select those streets which were identified as being in the poorest shape.


Glencoe is a pedestrian friendly community. With the high frequency of foot and stroller traffic on Village sidewalks, coupled with natural settling which occurs over time, Village staff keep a running list of sidewalk sections which need replacing.

The 2017 Sidewalk Replacement Program is scheduled to start as early as late July. 


Weekly Construction Update: Friday, July 21

Sidewalk Replacement Projects

  • All sidewalk on the Village’s list for replacement has been marked by Village staff. At this time, any additional sidewalk replacement can be incorporated into this year’s program. Requests can be forwarded to Public Work’s staff for review and incorporation into next year’s sidewalk replacement program.
  • Underground utility locates will begin next week. Residents will notice colorful spray paint on sidewalks and streets associated with this work.
  • The contractor does not anticipate being able to start on replacement for a minimum of 2-3 weeks.
