Buffalo Grove Interconnection Project

Project Update - The connection on the watermain, along with a 6” pipe for the fire hydrant to the west of Prairie Lane, were installed last week. Contractors also excavated for the interconnection vault and prepped the area for placement, including grading and compacted soil. On July 10th, the vault was delivered; however, contractors were unable to install the vault because the crane on-site was not large enough. A larger crane was mobilized to the job site on July 11th to install the vault. This week, contractors will begin installation of the 12” pipe into the vault at which time they will cap it for the first pressure and chlorination tests. Pressure and chlorination tests are tentatively scheduled to take place July 15th or July 16th.

Project Summary – The Watermain interconnection project with the Village of Buffalo Grove will give Lincolnshire’s water customers access to high quality, Lake Michigan drinking water should the Highland Park water system ever be compromised.

Crosstown Watermain Project 

Project Update – Construction of the 12” mainline watermain continued eastward down Regent Lane last week. As of July 11th, installations approach the east end of the project near Canterbury Road and one hydrant has been installed near Sprague School. Work this week includes making connections to the existing watermain system near Riverwoods Road and at Queens Way and Canterbury. Work on hydrants may also occur, weather permitting.

The Resident Engineer will notify residents of any temporary disruptions to water service that may be required through the connection process. With moving construction operations, residents can expect temporary traffic delays as trucks and equipment are being loaded; every effort to accommodate passing traffic will be made.

Due to minor modifications needed near Riverwoods Road, the temporary detour for Buckingham Place will be put back in place for an additional two days. Please use alternative routes around the block; your patience is appreciated. The Resident Engineer notified residents who may be impacted by temporary driveway blockages and closures.

Project Summary - The 2019 Crosstown Watermain Project – Queensway to Riverwoods Road involves construction of a dedicated watermain to enhance the Village’s ability to deliver a high quality water supply to neighborhoods west of Riverwoods Road and north of Half Day Road. This is phase 2 of the Village’s Crosstown Watermain project. The project is designed to minimize traffic impacts around Sprague School during the regular school year. Project will begin after the school year in June and should be largely completed by the time school begins in August. The project will involve the installation of a new watermain under the roadway pavement from Queens Way along Canterbury Road, Regent Lane, Kings Cross Dr. and Buckingham Place.

A resident Information Meeting was held on Monday, May 20, 2019, 7 PM at Village Hall to provide additional information to impacted residents in advance of the project, click here for the meeting presentation slides. Click here for a project information brochure.
