As part of a continued effort to improve, the drainage throughout the Business Park, the Village will be installing a relief storm sewer under Louis Avenue (existing culvert to Busse Road). This relief storm sewer will take storm water during high rain events from the existing culvert under Louis Avenue east approximately 926 feet and then flow south through a storm sewer discharging back into Higgins Creek Tributary A. This will decrease the surface water elevation during these high rain events. The Village with the assistant of MWRDGC and other governmental agencies will begin construction this spring.
Project Start: June 2019

Previous Construction Updates
The week of June 17, Swallow Construction installed new ductile iron water main from Busse Road through the 1500 block of Louis Avenue. The new water main will be pressure tested and chlorinated prior to transferring water services to the new water main. In the coming weeks, the contractor will begin installing a new sanitary sewer in the existing roadway pavement. The roadway will remain under the one-way westbound only detour until completion in Fall.
The week of June 10, Swallow Construction began the Louis Avenue Culvert Improvement Project. Louis Avenue has a one-way detour westbound only from Busse Road to 1480 Louis. This detour will be in place for most of the summer as the contractor installs new water main, sanitary sewer, and box culverts in the roadway pavement.
Construction on the Louis Avenue Culvert improvement Project will begin on Monday June 10. During construction, Louis Avenue will become one-way in the westbound direction only from Busse Road to 1530 Louis Avenue. Eastbound traffic traveling to Busse Road should follow the posted detour route. The following Construction Notice was delivered to all businesses this past week.
