Water main installation will begin Monday, February 8, on Deerfield Road in the Village of Deerfield. Starting Monday, traffic control will be in place minimizing traffic to one lane in each direction (maintaining left turn lanes at signalized intersections when possible). This will allow the contractor to saw cut and remove pavement to install water main down the center of Deerfield Road. Delivery of materials will take place early next week, with the actual installation of water main beginning about 50 feet east of the intersection of Waukegan and Deerfield Roads on Wednesday. Various other operations will also begin next week, including tree removal and temporary traffic signal installation.
Deerfield Road AT&T Relocation Status: Work continues in Highland Park. Duct installation will be completed on February 12, 2016 completing the scope of Archon’s contract with AT&T. Upon completion of duct installation, AT&T will have 6-8 weeks of work which will overlap the Deerfield Road Construction Project . That work includes pulling fiber optic cable from Deerfield into Highland Park and the splicing of copper lines which will allow the removal of utility poles on the south side of Deerfield Road. The Project Management Team, AT&T and ALamp will coordinate these overlapping operations in efforts to minimize impacts to the reconstruction project’s schedule.
