The City received federal STP funds for the reconstruction of Clavey Road from east of US Route 41 to Green Bay Road. The use of federal funds requires the City to follow federal guidelines in the design and construction of the project. The guidelines call for the project to be administered through the State of Illinois through its Department of Transportation (IDOT). The process includes three major phases for the project. These phases include:
1. Preliminary Engineering (also known as Phase I Engineering)
2. Final Design (also known as Phase II Engineering)
3. Construction and Construction Engineering (also known as Phase III)
The project is currently in Phase I Engineering. During Phase I environmental impacts are identified and evaluated and a conceptual design is developed. The impacts, if any, and the conceptual design will be summarized in a Project Development Report which will be submitted to IDOT for approval.
Subject to IDOT approval, Phase II is scheduled to take place in 2018 and construction is anticipated in late 2018 or early 2019 with completion in late 2019.
Proposed improvements called for in this project include:
• Reconstruction of the old concrete pavement and replacement with a new full-depth asphalt pavement
• Construction of new concrete curb and gutter
• Construction of a new dedicated off-street asphalt multi-use path (bike path) along the south side of Clavey Road
• Construction of new storm sewers and water mains
• Replacement of the existing bridge that carries Clavey Road over the Skokie River with a new bridge
• A new signal at the Clavey Road/Green Bay Road intersection
• Minor landscaping restoration of the grass parkway
During construction it is anticipated that travel in the westbound direction on Clavey Road will be closed and a posted detour will direct traffic around the westbound closure. Eastbound traffic will be maintained. To ensure that we receive the public’s feedback we encourage you to attend and provide us with your comments.
