2018 Construction Projects



2018 Sewer Lining

This project will involve the installation of cured-in-place pipeliner in existing sanitary sewer in several locations within the City as noted in the attached map. Innovative Underground, LLC will begin sanitary sewer lining improvements generally located in the area east of Bridge Street, south of Hydraulic Avenue and north of Stagecoach Trail. This project is anticipated to begin May 9th and should be completed by mid-summer. Impacts to traffic are expected to be minimal; however daytime lane and roadway closures should be expected. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during the lining process.

Fox Highland – Raintree Village Water Main Interconnect

This project will involve the installation of 1,010 feet of 8 inch water main along Hazeltine Way and Kingsmill Street bounded between the Fox Highland and Raintree Village Subdivisions. This project is anticipated to be underway in July and should be completed by the end of September. Impacts to traffic are expected to be minimal; however daytime lane and roadway closures should be expected.


Whispering Meadows

This project consists of a roadway resurfacing in Units 1, 2 and 4 (with the exclusion of Faxon Road), curb and gutter repairs, sidewalk ramp improvements, street light repairs as needed, and various work items on the sanitary sewer, water main and storm sewer. 


The project is being funded with local funds and funds acquired from the developer’s bonding company. Geneva Construction Company of Aurora was awarded the contract.  Geneva Construction will likely utilize several sub-contractors throughout the project to complete various construction items.


The City has contracted with Engineering Enterprises, Inc. (EEI) to provide engineering oversight during the project. EEI will serve as the point of contact for the residents, the contractor, and City throughout the project. EEI’s tasks include ensuring the project is constructed according to the appropriate plans and specifications as well as communicating and coordinating with residents affected by the construction.


UPDATED INFORMATION (July 3, 2018)

The tentative schedule is as follows:

Geneva Construction will complete paving binder and may start paving Thursday of this week (7/5).


Please note this is an approximate schedule and can change due to weather, equipment breakdown, etc.  At locations where the existing pavement is removed/milled down to the stone base, the contractor will be providing temporary aggregate ramps at each driveway to maintain driveway access prior to paving.


During paving operations, please do not park your car on the streets within the project limits. Please have your vehicles off the road by 7:00 am. You should be able to park along the street after 5:00 pm. The contractor will be priming the street ahead of the paving operations.
Please pay attention to the “Fresh Oil” signs.


Restoration - The general contractor, Geneva Construction Company, has initiated grass
restoration efforts. The disturbed areas have been or will be restored with topsoil, grass seed, fertilizer and hydro-mulch. Due to the weather conditions and time of year, less than favorable results are being seen on these restored areas. Grass restoration will be an ongoing process until such a time as the City has deemed it acceptable. We anticipate that the unacceptable areas will be reseeded in late August or September during more favorable weather conditions. In the meantime, the contractor is responsible for maintaining the restored areas including weed control. We thank you for your cooperation and patience during this process.


Location map and public flyer for the specific dates the contractor will be working in your area.


Daily Work Hours – Exact work hours will vary throughout the project. Typical daily work hours are from 7:00AM to 7:00PM, Monday to Friday. Work on Saturdays may be needed depending on work progress. No work is permitted on Sundays and holidays.

Utility Markings – As part of the construction process, the contractor frequently calls J.U.L.I.E. to help assist in the location of buried utilities. We ask for your cooperation in maintaining the marks and flags as they are located. We realize this can be a burden during mowing, however, if it is necessary to remove the flags please replace them in their exact location. Your cooperation will help avoid unnecessary utility outages.

Parking / Access to Driveways – Access to driveways will be maintained throughout the project. Temporary loss of access may occur periodically due to construction operations. Residents will be notified in advance of any loss of access. Please adhere to all parking laws and signs in the project area.

Garbage Pickup – Residents in the project area should continue with garbage service as usual. The Resident Engineer will be in contact with the garbage pick-up company and will coordinate with the residents if any changes are needed.

Traffic Control – Lane closures should be anticipated throughout construction. The contractor will make every effort to keep the roadway clear and maintain appropriate traffic control, however please use caution when driving in the project area.

The primary intent of the traffic control signage is to minimize traffic flow to local residents only and for the safety of the public and workers.  Please obey all posted construction signs, barricades and warnings.

Mail Deliveries – The USPS will deliver mail as usual.  The City will work with the USPS Postmaster if special conditions are warranted during construction. 

Irrigation / Sprinkler Systems / Pet Fences / Private Drains – The City asks for your cooperation in locating private irrigation systems, private drains and pet fences as these systems do not appear on standard J.U.L.I.E. locates. Every effort will be made to avoid damage to these systems. If you are aware of an irrigation system or pet fence at your residence, please call the Resident Engineer (contact info below) so she can make the Contractor aware. The more information we receive from the residents, the better the opportunity we will have to help avoid unnecessary and expensive repair bills.

Parkway Materials and Plantings – Major parkway reconstruction is not anticipated for this project.  However materials and plantings may be in conflict with sidewalk, curb and gutter or underground utility repairs.  If you wish to retain plants or other homeowner installed materials that currently are located in the public right-of-way, please move them from the work area prior to construction. If special arrangements or assistance is required, please contact the Resident Engineer.

Safety Concerns –Please exercise caution while within the project area, even when construction is not taking place. Should there be a condition that requires immediate attention, please contact the Resident Engineer.

The Resident Engineer will be on site during all construction operations and will be the main contact for residents. Nadia Simek of EEI will be providing this vital role for this project.
