Crestbrook Subdivision Roadway Reconstruction Project
This Spring the Village will reconstruct residential roadways and install street lighting in the Crestbrook Subdivision. This includes Addison Road, Center Street, Woodland Avenue, Forestview Drive, and Forestview Road. The project also includes driveway apron removal and replacement, drainage structure adjustment/reconstruction, new drainage structures, addition of ribbon curb, pavement markings, and landscape restoration within the right-of-way. The construction activities are generally broken down into three phases:
- Drainage Repairs – Necessary repairs and/or modifications are made to drainage structures, driveway culverts, and roadside swales/ditches along roadways.
- Roadway Improvements – Removal of the existing pavement shoulders, and driveways. Construction of the proposed ribbon curb, driveway aprons, and initial asphalt pavement layer. Streetlighting infrastructure will be installed. This work is generally limited to one side of the street at a time to allow access to their property.
- Pavement Repairs – The final phase includes parkway restoration, placement of the final pavement surface layer, and then final pavement markings are placed. Streetlights will be installed and turned one. Prior to paving, a tack-coat of fresh oil is applied as an adhesive or bonding between the asphalt layers. Fresh oil signage will be posted in advance to remind motorist to travel slowly on the tack-coat material.
During construction, traffic will be maintained with daily lane closures and flaggers. Only the immediate works zone area will be closed during working hours. The project is expected to be substantially completed by late August 2023, with final completion and landscape restoration completed by October 27, 2023.

This week, Utility Dynamics continued installation of the underground conduits for the street lighting cables and streetlighting controller foundation and Galaxy Underground finished utility structure adjustments and storm sewer installation. Next week, RW Dunteman anticipates finishing grading and shaping of ditches. Landscaping work will not take place until September to ensure cooler temperatures that facilitate growth of the sod. Final completion is expected by September 30
This week, RW Dunteman completed some clean-up work with the ribbon curbs and HMA binder that has been previously installed. Also, the contractor worked on grading and shaping the existing ditches to accommodate the modifications to the storm sewers and culvert pipes that were completed. Galaxy Underground, subcontractor to RW Dunteman, worked on utility structure adjustments in the pavement this week and Utility Dynamics began installation of the underground conduits for the street lighting cables. Street lighting work will continue next week, as well as other clean-up work in preparation for landscaping and the final hot-mix asphalt surface course. Landscaping work will not take place until September to ensure cooler temperatures that facilitate growth of the sod. Final completion is expected by September 30.
This week, RW Dunteman completed pavement removal and worked to prepare the roadway stone base for installation of the new asphalt roadway. This process took a bit longer than originally anticipated, and as a result paving of the new roadway will begin next week. The contractor will pave the initial 6 inches of asphalt binder over the course of the first few days of next week. The new pavement can be driven on as soon as the rollers are finished compacting the new asphalt, and driveway access will be minimally interrupted as the stone ramp is removed and the paving operation moves past. Residents are asked to continue to park in their driveways during working hours as to not interfere with the paving operations.
This week, the contractor completed driveway replacement of both concrete and asphalt driveway aprons. All driveways in the project limits are now open and residents can return to using them. The contractor also worked on backfilling the new ribbon curb and driveway aprons with a first round of topsoil. On Monday July 31, the contractor will begin removal of the existing roadway pavement in preparation for the installation of a new 8 inch thick hot-mix asphalt roadway pavement. To facilitate this work, residents are asked to not park on the roadway until the new pavement is installed. Also, due to limited space, the contractor will be setting up a one-way traffic pattern on the loop of streets in the neighborhood. Residents received Project letter No. 4 to their front doors on Friday July 28th.
This week, the contractor completed excavation for the new ribbon curb, installation of stone subbase for the new cul-de-sac layouts, completed replacement of deteriorated sewers. On Friday, the contractor utilized a slip-form paving machine to install the outside ribbon curb. Next week, the contractor will work on driveway replacement with both concrete and asphalt in anticipation to re-open affected driveways by the end of the week. It will take 3-5 days for the new concrete to cure to strengths that allow vehicles to drive on them. With the ribbon curb installed and all driveways restored with access, Dunteman will be moving on to the roadway pavement work in the coming week.
This week, although slowed by the raining weather, Dunteman continued removal of the existing ribbon curb and aprons on the outside of the loop. Aprons have been removed and backfilled with temporary stone to maintain driveway access, and excavation for the new ribbon curb & stone subbase has begun. Next week, weather permitting, the contractor will finish excavating and placing stone for the outside ribbon curb. Once complete, the pouring of the outside ribbon curb by means of a slip form machine will occur. Currently, the Contractor is anticipating that to happen on Thursday July 20th. It is at that point that residents on the outside of the loop will temporarily lose access to their driveways for approximately 7 days to allow for curing of the curb and apron replacements. A separate orange door hanger will be delivered when the contractor is ready to pour the outside curb and aprons, letting residents know when to be out of their driveways and where to park.
This week, Dunteman began removal of the existing ribbon curb and aprons on the outside of the loop. Aprons are being removed and backfilled with temporary stone to maintain access. Mailboxes for all residents have been relocated to the inside of the loop temporarily, and they will be placed back to their original locations once the project staging allows. Next week, weather permitting, the contractor will be excavating for and placing stone for the outside ribbon curb. It is possible that late next week, the pouring of the outside ribbon curb will occur. At that point, residents will temporarily lose access to their driveways for approximately 7 days to allow for curing of the curb and apron replacements. A separate orange door hanger will be delivered when the contractor is ready to pour the outside curb and aprons, letting residents know when and where to park.
This week, RW Dunteman completed restoration of both HMA and concrete driveway aprons that were removed as part of the first phase of construction. All driveways on the inside of the loop are now re-opened and residents can park on the completed driveways. Additionally, the contractor has backfilled along the new ribbon curb and the existing street pavement with grindings. Beginning on Wednesday July 5, the contractor will begin removal of the existing ribbon curb and aprons on the outside of the loop. Residents will have their aprons removed and backfilled with temporary stone during this work. There is no need for residents on the outside of the loop to park on the street yet. A separate orange door hanger will be delivered when the contractor is ready to pour the outside curb and aprons, letting residents know when and where to park. No work is taking place on the project from June 30th through July 4th.
This week, RW Dunteman began excavation for the installation of the new 18” wide concrete shoulder/ribbon curb. Beginning at 7am on Thursday June 22, resident driveways on the inside of the loop will become temporarily inaccessible to allow for the installation and cure time of the new concrete shoulder/ribbon curb. Additionally, during this time, the contractor will be replacing the driveway aprons removed behind the ribbon curb. Affected driveways have received an orange construction notice at their front doors that shows the dates and times of the planned inaccessibility. Any vehicles needed for the next 7 days should be moved out of the driveway and parked on the opposite side of the street. Arrangements have been made with the Police department to allow overnight, on-street parking. It is anticipated that driveway access will be restored by the end of next week at the latest.
This week, Galaxy Underground, subcontractor to RW Dunteman, completed sewer and culver repairs. Next week, the contractor will begin excavation and installation of the new 18” wide concrete shoulder/ribbon curb. Resident driveways will become temporarily inaccessible during this phase of work, and the contractor will be staging this work in pieces to allow for resident parking on the street. Affected driveways will receive an orange construction notice at their front doors that shows the dates and times of the planned inaccessibility. It will also direct residents where to park vehicles that they will need during the period of inaccessibility.
This week, the contractor RW Dunteman began mobilizing to the project site. Advanced warning signs were erected and project layout has begun. Middle-to-late next week, sewer repairs will begin. It is anticipated that after completion of the sewer work, the contractor will begin excavation for the ribbon curbs. Residents will be notified with a door hanger when access to their driveway will be restricted. This project is anticipated to be completed by Fall of 2023.
