Southwest Elmhurst Stormwater Mitigation Project-Phase I - Update 10.09.18

The underground contractor is currently working on Parkside and Prospect to complete a small amount of sewer work as the sewer work nears completion. The asphalt base course was paved last week along Bryan, and the restoration behind the new curbs will take place over the next week. Once all of the sewer work is complete, the final pavement surface will be installed over Jackson and Bryan at the same time; which is expected to take place over the next couple weeks. The installation of the slurry wall at the basin near Royal York Condominiums was completed last week, and the full scale excavation has begun.

Southwest Elmhurst Stormwater Mitigation Project-Phase I Update 9.26.18

Posted on September 26, 2018 at 9:29 AM by Barbara Petrucci

The contractor completed all underground work along Bryan Street, and the concrete work on the roadway is nearing completion. Bryan Street will have the stone base graded in preparation for asphalt paving which will take place in the next few weeks. The sewer crew is continuing west along Jackson Street, and once complete will do a small amount of sewer work to improve drainage on Parkside Avenue and Prospect Avenue. Work around the detention basin on the City property in between Royal York Condominiums, Messiah Lutheran Church, and Timothy Christian began last week. Tree trimming took place and the installation of an underground slurry wall is currently underway. The slurry wall will limit the amount of ground water that will seep into the basin once excavated. Mass excavation of the basin is expected to begin within 1-3 weeks.

Southwest Elmhurst Stormwater Mitigation Project-Phase I

The contractor recently finished installing the 48” storm sewer in the centerline of Bryan up to the intersection of Jackson this week. The crew is now replacing a portion of the sanitary sewer between Van Buren and Jackson. There will be one more new 18” storm sewer main to be installed between Van Buren and Jackson to replace the existing sewer that was removed, and the crew will then begin replacing all damaged and lead water service lines that were exposed during sewer installation. In early-to-mid September the roadway restoration on Bryan, Jackson to Harrison, will begin and include curb repairs and roadway restoration.
