Water Main on Longvalley Road Continues

Work Completed Last Week, July 25th to July 29th  
·         Started water main installation along Longvalley Road at east end near river and worked west
·         Nicor Gas continued to replace the existing gas main and services along North Branch Road.

Work Anticipated to be completed This week, August 1st to August 5th  
·         Continue water main installation along Longvalley Road towards North Branch Road
·         Nicor Gas to begin work along Longvalley Road replacing the gas main and services in the area.

The contractor will continue with water main installation along Longvalley Road this week, with hopes of installing on the water main to North Branch Road by the end of the week. During water main installation, the contractor will be excavating along the entire length of the roadway in lieu of across the roadway. This will pose additional challenges in traveling along the roadway due to the construction equipment on-site and excavations on the side of the road. Also, those residents that live adjacent to where the working is occurring during the day, access to your driveway will be temporarily restricted as the excavation occurs in front of your driveway. Residents affected by temporary driveway closures will be notified by knocking on your doors and asking to move any vehicles from the driveway or garage prior to excavation occurring. We will do everything possible to limit the travel delays along Longvalley road, but please use care and allow a little extra time. The excavations will be filled at the end of each day, so access to all driveways and the roadway will be restored.

Due to the construction, an existing ComEd electrical line was hit causing a power-outage in the area. The incident is still under investigation regarding the reasons for the electrical line being hit. The good news is no injuries occurred on-site. We apologize for any inconvenience this interruption in electrical service caused.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding as you live within a construction area.
