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.
