Current Design Projects
Bolz Road Reconstruction Project
In 2016 the Village was awarded $1,312,500 in federal Surface Transportation Program funds with a grant through the Kane Kendall Council of Mayors. These funds will cover approximately 80% of the construction costs.
Roadway improvements would be on Bolz Road from 110 feet west of Amarillo Drive to IL-25. The Village has contracted with HR Green, Inc. for the engineering services. The Final design is currently being completed. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2020. This is dependent on the start of the Kane County Division of Transpiration’s Long Meadow Parkway improvements directly north and parallel to the Bolz Road project. Work will consist of removing the existing concrete pavement and replacing with a new hot mix asphalt section, new curb & gutter and driveway aprons, ADA and pedestrian upgrades, minor storm sewer improvements, pavement markings and restoration.
Kings Road and Alameda Drive Drainage Improvements
The Village has contracted with CBBEL to complete the engineering services for a drainage study and then the final design for storm sewer and drainage improvements for areas along Kings Road and Alameda Drive. The final design is currently being completed. Funding for construction will be recommended and considered for next fiscal year, FY2020. Work will consist replacing the existing culverts on Kings Road and Alameda Drive, stream bank stabilization, new storm sewer and high capacity inlets, roadway improvements, and restoration.
Wakefield Drive Drainage Study
The Village has contracted with HR Green, Inc. to complete the engineering service for a drainage study for an area within Golf View Lane to the west, Marlboro Circle to the north, Village limits to the east and IL-68 to the south. Funding for construction will be recommended and considered for an upcoming fiscal year. Work will consist replacing installing new storm sewer and high capacity inlets, creating storm water detention, roadway improvements, and restoration.
Keith Andres Memorial Park Stream Restoration Project
In 2018 the Village was awarded $648,507 in EPA Section 319 funds through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. These funds will cover approximately 60% of the construction costs.
The Village has contracted with CBBEL to complete the engineering services for the grant application and the final design for construction improvements that will stabilize approximately 4,000 feet of eroded stream bank along both sides of the Lake Marian Creek with Keith Andres Memorial Park. Other improvements include the installation of 26 pool/riffle sequence grade control structures, removal of a section of failing concrete lined channel, regrading, stone toe protection,, raising and lowering the channel bottom grade in various locations, filling in the downstream to recreate a single channel with proper morphology, and restore 2 acres of adjoining riparian woodland by removing non-native vegetation. Permit approvals are pending and construction is anticipated to begin late summer or early fall.
Old Town Area 1-A Improvement Project
In 2017, the Village contracted with HR Green, Inc. to complete a master plan developing options for roadway and utility improvements and anticipated costs that could be used for budget purposes.
The Village has contracted with HR Green, Inc. to start the final design for an area of Old Town identified as Area 1-A in the master plan. This area was chosen as it is the most downstream portion of the drainage area in the master plan area. Proposed storm sewers would be built to serve Area 1-A and other upstream areas identified in the master plan. The final design for Area 1-A is underway. Work will consist of designing a new curb and gutter roadway with sidewalk, new storm sewer, replacing and up-sizing water mains, sanitary rehabilitation, street lighting, and restoration.
