CONSTRUCTION ADVISORY NORTH SHORE GAS – SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS
Date: July 11, 2018
North Shore Gas (NSG) will be proceeding with system improvements as part of a large six-phase project. The intent of the project is to retire older gas mains, install new mains, and reconnect residents’ individual services to the new line. The majority of the work is anticipated to occur within the parkways of the public right-of-way, so residents should observe minimal or no impacts to the roadways.
The following streets are shown to be included in the upcoming project:
W. McKinley Avenue
W. Austin Avenue
S. Dymond Road
W. Rockland Road
Pine Tree Lane
The project is anticipated to begin as early as this week. The overall project area is shown on the attached map, and the intent is for NSG to move through the area in sequential order as shown by the numbered phases (i.e. Phase I will begin first, and NSG will proceed into Phase II upon completion, etc.).
Residents should have received an initial notice in the mail from NSG regarding the upcoming project. Village staff has requested that a follow-up notice be provided by NSG to residents when the work is nearing their phase of the project. Attached for reference is the sample follow-up notice that NSG will be sending out when work is about 1-2 weeks from approaching a specific area.
Included on the attached sample notice is the contact information for NSG’s project supervisor (Dan Socki, 224-500-8337). Residents are able to contact Mr. Socki directly with any specific questions related to the project. Residents are also always encouraged to contact the Engineering Division (847-918-2100) if they have any specific questions or concerns that they’d like to discuss with Village staff.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this project.
