Construction Advisory: Cook Ave. (Brainerd to West), West St.

You may be aware of the bond issue approved in 2012’s referendum to repair Village roads.  We are pleased to advise you that your street will be rehabilitated and resurfaced as part of the Village’s 2017 Pavement Rehabilitation Program. A contract for this work was awarded A-Lamp Concrete Contractors of Schaumburg.

In general, rehabilitation work includes replacement of selected segments of deteriorated curb and gutter, milling off the existing pavement surface, and resurfacing. The base layer of the pavement is generally in good condition; there are only a few areas where full-depth replacement of the pavement should be needed. Some drainage structures along the curb line will also be repaired. Disturbed parkways and driveways will be restored after paving work is completed. 

We anticipate construction work beginning the week of June 19 in your area, and you will see the utility location markings (paint and flags) in preparation for the work. Please do not disturb these markings as they provide important guidance for the contractor and show the location of existing underground utilities. We will provide you with more information on the schedule as soon as it is available. 

Curb and gutter removal will begin the week of June 19.  If curb and gutter is being replaced in front of your driveway apron, be advised that you will be without the use of your driveway for approximately one week. You will receive a hand-delivered notice to your front door in advance of any necessary driveway closure with further information.

If you are temporarily out of your driveway, please note the following:
•    During working hours, please park away from those areas where the contractor is working; this will expedite their operations, and also minimizes the chance for inadvertent damage to vehicles.  After hours, and overnight, you should be able to park closer to home.
•    Please do not park within 50 feet of an intersection corner or a stop sign, and at least 25 feet from any fire hydrant.

We understand that the upcoming construction work will create inconvenience for all affected residents and will do our best to minimize the disruptions. Your patience and cooperation throughout this process is greatly appreciated. 

For any questions regarding the construction, please call Kevin Betke (Resident Engineer with Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd.) at (847) 833-0252 between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. You can also email Kevin Betke at or call the Engineering Division Office at (847) 918-2100. For any problems which may develop after hours, please call the Police non-emergency number (847) 362-8310, and they will contact the proper personnel for follow-up. Thank you again for your cooperation.
