Crosstown Water Main Project

Major traffic pattern changes in effect on Riverwoods Road/Half Day Road due to the Crosstown Water Main Project. Expect delays!

  • Work at the Half Day Road and Riverwoods Road intersection is nearly complete. Crews completed pushing new water main under the intersection. Filling and pressure testing of the new water main will be completed this week so that work on restoring the pavement areas can begin next week.

  • Bike path and parkway restoration between Half Day Road and Duffy Lane will continue over the next few weeks. Progress on this was delayed due to weather. 

  • Work north of Half Day Road is tentatively scheduled to begin early next week between Surrey Lane and Brampton Lane west of Riverwoods Road. This work will be staged off of the roadway and involve assembling pipe sections that will be drilled (not trenched) into the ground to minimize impacts and utility conflicts. As access drives are constructed and material is delivered, flagging operations may be necessary for this area. Barricades will also be placed to close the shoulder on the west side of Riverwoods Road between Half Day Road and Brampton Lane to allow for the off-roadway work to occur safely in the coming weeks.

  • Water main installation between Half Day Road and Pembroke Drive on the west side of Riverwoods along the bike path continues this week and next week. Path users in this area are being redirected to cross Half Day Road and use the path on the east side of Riverwoods Road to get to Pembroke while water main installation is occurring.

  • The intersection of Half Day Road and Riverwoods Road will continue to be reduced to one lane in each direction and on Riverwoods Road the right and left-turn lanes will be closed at Half Day Road while the water main installation is finalized and pavement is restored.

  • Village staff and consultants continue to monitor the daily traffic needs at the intersection of Half Day Road and Riverwoods Road for any opportunities to adjust the timing of intersection traffic signals.
    Police Department personnel are aware of vehicles cutting through residential areas to avoid the intersection. Patrol Officers have increased patrols to address concerns regarding traffic speeds.

The traffic changes at the intersection are expected to last until November 2021. The entirety of the Crosstown Water Main project is expected to continue through spring 2022.
