Pavement Removal North of Willow Road to Start Early on Thursday, September 8th

Due to the large amount of businesses and lack of residential homes north of Willow Road along Patriot Boulevard, pavement removal will begin in the early morning on Thursday, September 8th.

Businesses in this area include the Fields car dealership, Home Depot, and Costco. The early morning start will allow a majority of the work to be completed prior to the heavy traffic during business hours.

It is anticipated the pavement removal along Patriot Boulevard south of Willow Road will be completed by the end of the week. Asphalt paving is scheduled to begin during the middle of the week of September 12th.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding.

Work to Begin July 18th

The Glen Street Resurfacing project is scheduled to start the week of July 18th.

As previously mentioned in earlier posts, the project was delayed due to the potential IDOT shut-down if a budget bill was not passed by the state legislature. A budget bill was passed at the last moment; however, the Village and contractor did want to start until the budget was officially passed and were notified by IDOT to proceed with the project. The Village also wanted to ensure the contractor had an updated scheduled to complete the project in a timely manner prior to starting.

The contractor will begin saw-cutting the existing concrete curb & gutter and sidewalks to be replaced starting the week of July 11th, with more significant saw-cutting to be performed the week of July 18th.

The contractor will begin concrete curb & gutter and sidewalk removal and replacement along Chestnut Avenue and Patriot Blvd starting later in the week of July 18th or the week of July 25th.

State Budget Bill Passed for Transportation Funding. Schedule for Work to Begin being Finalized

As you may have heard in the news, the state government passed a temporary budget bill to allow for construction projects to continue for the next 12 months.

This is good news because the Glen Street Resurfacing project will move forward this year. However, due to the anticipated shut-down and per direction from IDOT, many of the upfront tasks to get prepared for a project of this size were put on hold.

The Village is currently working with the contractor to develop a new schedule for completing the work. As soon as we know more, additional information will be provided.

Please be on the look-out for additional Blog Posts regarding the start of construction. Also, the message boards along the project site will be updated with the new project start dates.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding as we were waiting to determine how the state legislature was going to move forward with the potential of not having a passed budget bill.

IDOT Road Work Halt May Cause Project to be Delayed.


The Village of Glenview was officially notified Thursday that the Illinois Department of Transportation has directed all contractors and consultants working on road projects funded by the State of Illinois or for which federal funds pass through the State of Illinois to cease operations after Thursday, June 30. The directive comes in response to the absence of a state budget, without which IDOT has stated it lacks the appropriation authority to incur additional spending.


This action means ongoing projects would be safely shut down and no new work would commence. This would impact three federally-funded projects in the Village of Glenview-- for which IDOT has contracted for construction directly with a contractor -- that had been scheduled to start July 5, which includes the Glen Street Resurfacing project.
