Binder course installation at the IL Route 176 intersection with Walkup Road was completed Wednesday 5/8. Final surface course will be installed within the next several weeks. Today (weather permitting) the contractor will prep for placing asphalt on Friday on the west side of Walkup Road from north of Talismon Drive to south of Crystal Ridge Drive. Work on the traffic signals will continue at the intersection with installation of the concrete handholes in the left turn lanes for signal wiring. In order to allow this handhole installation work to occur safely in the left turn lanes, traffic will be relocated to the outside lanes approaching the intersection while this work occurs.
Multi-use path installation will begin today along the east side of Walkup Road.
Landscaping will tentatively start late next week or early the following week.
Paving of the final lift of asphalt is scheduled to begin next week and last approximately 1 week.
Temporary lane closures and flagger operations may be required at times so please slow down and proceed with caution.
Curb installation on Walkup Road is complete and will be followed next week by asphalt placement, final striping, landscaping, and multi-use path construction.
Project work on IL Route 176 for the next week will consist of the grading of the area behind the curb, continued sidewalk installation and asphalt placement.
Traffic signal installation continues on IL Route 176 and Walkup Road.
Traffic signal installation at Mason Hill Road is ongoing, but the signal will not be turned on for use until surfacing is complete and the final striping configuration is in place.
The remaining work on the North Section is final surfacing, striping, traffic signal installation at Mason Hill Road, and punch list cleanup. Paving is expected to begin within the next two weeks and will take approximately one to two weeks to complete.
