Construction to Begin Soon

With the warm weather just around the corner, construction crews will be on site within the next few weeks.

The electrical contractor has started work on the traffic signals at the intersections of Wadsworth Rd and Green Bay (IL 131) and Cambridge Blvd.

Check back to the site for updated information.

Construction Season Winding Down

With the winter weather upon us, the construction season is winding down quickly. The contractor will continue to work on the final landscaping on the east leg of Wadsworth Road (north side) in order to complete this before end of the month. At that time there will be no further roadway work until spring when tree planting will occur and the final surface course will be placed. During this winter period the traffic signals may be adjusted, so please use caution when workers are present.

The roadway has been opened up to its final configuration with temporary pavement markings. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the construction of the intersection.

See you in the spring!

Construction Update

Today crews are finishing hot-mix-asphalt paving for driveways and other winterization items including temporary ramps for snow plowing.  Due to the extreme cold weather coming much sooner than expected, the final lift of hot-mix-asphalt surface will not be placed this year.

Surfacing along with new traffic signals, shoulder work, tree plantings and other punch list work will be completed in spring 2015.

Next week (starting 12/1/14) the new pavement will be striped, traffic control barrels removed and the full width of the roadway opened to traffic.  New pavement markings will be in place as proposed for the full final lane configuration.

Additional work the week of 12/1/14 will include:

  • Final parkway grading and topsoil placement at Wadsworth Rd east of Green Bay Rd and other various locations in preparation for final landscaping
  • Finish landscaping as weather permits
