Project Update - November 2017

The contractor is scheduled to place the final surface of pavement on Leicester Road on Wednesday, November 8th. This operation will be performed with the use of flaggers to ensure two-way traffic is maintained at all times. On Tuesday, November 7th the contractor will be placing primer, “fresh oil”, in preparation for Wednesday’s work.

To fix several reoccurring potholes adjacent to the crosswalks on Biesterfield Road the contractor removed an 2-foot wide strip of pavement adjacent to the crosswalks on Saturday, November 3rd.  Grindings were placed to fill the void until the final pavement can be placed on Tuesday, November 7th

In addition, the full closure of Leicester Road between the two Alexian Brothers entrances was reopened to two-way traffic on Saturday, November 4th.

This summer the will be reconstructing Leicester Road from Biesterfield Road north to Wellington Avenue as part of the Village’s long-range capital plan Elk Grove 2025: Investing for the Future.  The project is anticipated to begin in July and be completed by mid-November. The project includes full depth pavement removal and replacement, curb, sidewalk and driveway apron removal and replacement, new water main installation, repairs to the existing storm sewer system and landscaping restoration.
