Westminster Way Watermain Replacement and Roadway Rehabilitation Project

7/18 Project Update - Last week, most of the final surface pavement was placed on Westminster Way and Sutton Place in residential areas. Driveway pavements were also restored. Paving of the final surface layer will take place on Westminster between the Tri-State Business Park and Half Day Road on Saturday, weather permitting. Parkway restorations are ongoing and anticipated to be completed this week. Please use caution when traveling through the project area due to the number of construction vehicles and workers that are on-site.

2018 04 27 Westminster Way Watermain2

Project Summary - The Village of Lincolnshire will continue to show its commitment towards maintaining its aging infrastructure by conducting road resurfacing in the northeast area of the Village in 2018. The 2018 04 27 Westminster Way Watermain1following streets are scheduled for resurfacing: Westminster Way in its entirety and Sutton Court. These areas will see a complete resurfacing of pavement, along with limited curb removal and replacement and storm sewer repairs. Also, part of the project will involve replacing the watermain along Westminster Way between the entrance to the Tri-State office complex and Sutton Court as well as Sutton Court and Sommerset Lane (see map for additional information). This is being done as corrosive soil conditions have contributed to a large number of watermain breaks in this area over the last several years. New installation practices and protective pipe materials will be used to address the corrosive soil issue. This project is expected to begin in mid-March and run through July/August.

A public information meeting was held on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. The following information was shared and is now available to provide information regarding this project:

 

Port Clinton Road Construction Update – Paving Work Scheduled for July 19 - 20

07/18 Project Update – Last week, widening was completed and the first layer of asphalt was placed on the expanded areas. The section of Port Clinton Road in front of the entrance to Stevenson High School scheduled to be paved this Thursday and Friday (July 19-20), weather permitting. During this time, the Port Clinton Road entrance to Stevenson High School will be closed. Please expect delays during this time and avoid the area if possible. Next week, final restorations and pavement markings are scheduled to be completed. For additional information, click here.

Project Summary - The construction work on Port Clinton Road at the entrance to Stevenson High School is now scheduled to begin on Monday June 11th. These improvements are being done as part of the ongoing $28 million expansion to Stevenson High School. The project will involve the construction of a dedicated right and left turn lane which will allow busses entering and exiting the campus to do so without conflicting each other or the need for police officers to stop traffic to allow for these turning movements to occur. This will also improve the flow of traffic for users of Port Clinton Road who are not going to Stevenson High School. Drivers should plan to avoid the area as delays are expected. All work will be done under single lane closures and flaggers during the day. At times during the project, access to the Port Clinton Road entrance to Stevenson High School may be restricted. Stevenson Drive is planned to be an entrance only. All vehicles on the Stevenson campus will be required to exit via Route 22 (Half Day Road). The project is anticipated to be completed by early August before the start of the new school year.
