Oakmont Road Storm Sewer Improvement Project to Resume April 15, 2019

The scope of work includes removal of the existing corrugated metal storm sewer pipe and replacement with a new reinforced concrete storm sewer pipe along the north parkway of Oakmont Road (to 1572 Oakmont Road) and continuing south between 1573 and 1583 Oakmont Road to Golf Road.  This pipe is planned for replacement due to continued deterioration as the pipe is showing signs of failure and flow restrictions.  Once completed, the new pipe will have the proper capacity to convey storm water for most rain events and instances of overland drainage will be reduced.  Roadway resurfacing will also be completed within the section of Oakmont Road that is impacted by the sewer construction.  Location Map

Project Update - April 11, 2019 

Construction activities are scheduled to resume Monday, April 15th.  Removal of the existing pavement surface course is scheduled to be completed on Monday, April 15th.  Pavement resurfacing is scheduled to be completed by the end of the week of April 15th, weather permitting.  You will not lose access to the street or your driveway during the resurfacing, but please reference the information below which describes the paving preparation process.

On the day prior to the application of the new asphalt surface an application of oil will be placed on the street.  Any driving on your street after "Fresh Oil" signs are installed will be AT YOUR OWN RISK.  The Village and contractor are not responsible for oil on your car when the "Fresh Oil" signs are standing.  This material may track onto your driveway, and/or adhere to your car.  Note:  the freshly oiled surface can remain wet, and may splatter until the asphalt is applied.  If street access is necessary, driving at less than 10 mph is recommended, and at your own risk.  Paving signs will also be placed at the ends of the street on the day prior to asphalt installation.

Permanent restoration and cleanup will begin upon completion of the pavement resurfacing.  We expect all items to be completed within the next few weeks.

Should you have any questions before or during the resurfacing process, please call the Transportation and Engineering Division at (847) 252-5800 or email at roadconstruction@hoffmanestates.org.

  

Westbound Entrance Ramp to I-90 at Central Road Open to Thru Traffic - updated 11-6-18

The new westbound ramp to I-90 from Central Road is now open and functions as the fourth ramp for the Roselle Road interchange.  Central Road is open to two lanes of traffic in each direction and the reconstructed bicycle path in the Forest Preserve is complete.  Cook County, in cooperation with the Illinois Tollway and Schaumburg, reconstructed Central Road as a part of the project.  The road work involved building an extensive land bridge which required driving piles to support the road in areas with poor soils.  Signal equipment at the new westbound entrance has been installed and will be scheduled to be turned on by the County.  Please continue to use caution while driving in construction zones.  To view the Cook County Highway Construction Map, click here.
