Spring construction is on the horizon and the Village of Flossmoor is ready to address some major street rehabilitation projects, Village-wide. Among the largest projects scheduled for the 2022 construction season includes the Berry Lane Drainage Improvements and the Street Pavement Rehabilitation Program. Stay tuned to Village communications via E-news, social media and the Village website to identify road closures and traffic detours.
Berry Lane Drainage Improvements
The Village is currently working with the Army Corps of Engineers on a large-scale drainage project in the north end of the Heather Hill neighborhood on Berry Lane, Bob-o-Link Rd, and Maryland Ave, to provide flood mitigation relief to the area. The project includes the installation of a large storm sewer in the roadway and permeable street pavers on Berry Lane with stormwater storage in the aggregate subbase. The Army Corps of Engineers is managing the construction of the project, which has a total estimated cost of $2,915,724. The Village successfully secured more than $2 million in grants for the project from the Army Corps of Engineers, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
Street Pavement Rehabilitation Program
The Village is working with Milhouse Engineering on the Village-wide street rehabilitation program that will be completed during the upcoming construction season. This program will include street resurfacing, patching, and curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs. The project has been released to bid. It is anticipated that a bid will be awarded by the first week of April.
