Water Main & Roadway Construction

The Village is embarking on an aggressive water main replacement program. This summer the Village will be replacing water main and road pavement on Waubansee, Blackhawk Trail south of Waubansee, East Gate, Shabbona Lane, Tecumseh east of Shabbona, and Cochise Drive east of Osceola.  This project is funded through a low interest loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

As construction begins, half the roadway in each area will be torn up during construction. After the water main is installed, the Village will repave the entire road so that we have some consistency in how the road looks.  This is all part of our long range capital plan.

This area is targeted first as it is the area where we experience the most water main breaks in our system.

Your Village Board has made communications with all residents, especially residents in the construction zone, a priority, so this is what we are going to do:

  • We will hold bi-weekly construction meetings to that we can do targeted updates to you as to what is happening on your specific street. This is especially important because when we are switching your water service from the old water main to the new one, you might be without water for a couple of hours.
  • We will hold at least one mid-project meeting with you at the Village Hall so that you may voice your thoughts on the construction project and its process.
  • You always have access to us through the Village’s website to ask specific questions and get answers to those questions.
  • We will have a post project review with you, probably in mid-November to see how we did. We will want to hear about the good, the bad, and the ugly.
