Construction Update

The new traffic pattern is in place and all lanes of traffic are on the new pavement.   Cleanup and removal work has started for the final stage on the north side of Wadsworth Rd and the west side of Green Bay Rd.  Today the existing pavement is being removed, barrier wall eliminated and ramps excavated for driveways on the north side of Wadsworth Rd east of Green Bay Rd, where the change in roadway elevation is most significant.  Pavement removal will continue this week (including Saturday) for all remaining existing pavement on the north side of Wadsworth Rd and west side of Green Bay Rd.

Week of 9/15/2014:

  • Finish existing pavement removal.
  • Excavate and begin grading for the roadway/parkway starting at Wadsworth Rd east of Green Bay Rd.
  • Install remaining storm sewer laterals and driveway culverts on the north side of Wadsworth Rd and west side of Green Bay Rd.
  • Begin water main installation from the northeast corner of Wadsworth Rd and Green Bay Rd to the east.

Please be cautious traveling through the work zone as the traffic pattern has changed.

 

 

Traffic Pattern Change 9/9/2014

NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN STARTING TUESDAY 9/9/14 – PLEASE BE ALERT AS THE TRAFFIC PATTERN HAS CHANGED!

The westbound lane of Wadsworth Rd and southbound lane of Green Bay Rd will be moved to the new pavement next to the eastbound and northbound lanes already in place.

Construction Update

This week the aggregate base has been prepared and fine graded for all areas to be paved at the centerline of Wadsworth Rd and Green Bay Rd, adjacent to the new pavement.  Today (9/5) hot-mix asphalt paving has started and will be completed for Wadsworth Rd  from west of Cambridge Blvd to Lynch Ave.  Final landscaping has also been completed for most of the east side of Green Bay Rd.

There will be no work onsite Saturday 9/6/14 with the Waukegan Air Show Festivities.

Week of 9/8/14:

  • Finish paving hot-mix asphalt in the middle area of Green Bay Rd adjacent to the new pavement.
  • NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN STARTING MONDAY 9/8/14 – The westbound lane of Wadsworth Rd and southbound lane of Green Bay Rd will be moved to the new pavement next to the eastbound and northbound lanes already in place.  This will allow vehicles to turn either direction from all driveways and side streets.
  • Remove the existing pavement and start earth excavation on the north side of Wadsworth Rd and west side of Green Bay Rd.  These areas were constructed temporarily at the start of the project and will now be finished to match the profile of the new roadway.  Access will be provided through the work zone for driveways and side streets on the north side of Wadsworth Rd and west side of Green Bay Rd.
