Village Construction Projects


Current Construction Projects 

Staff has begun coordinating with contractors to complete several capital improvement projects, detailed in the Village's 10-Year Community Improvement Program (CIP). As we enter the 2018-2019 construction season, stay tuned to the Weekly Construction Updates on this page, register for Glencoe CONNECT and subscribe to Village eNews for timely updates as these projects progress.

Construction Communication Survey

The Village is always looking for ways to improve our communication efforts, and as such, has developed a survey to gauge resident's satisfaction with our outreach during these projects. All response data will be kept anonymous and will be used to inform our future communication plans.

Should you have questions regarding this survey, please contact Management Analyst Adam Hall at ahall@villageofglencoe.org / (847) 461-1115.

Northwest Commuter Lot Light Replacement - In Progress

Northwest Commuter Lot Streetlight Replacement
The northwest commuter lot has 13 street lights which were installed in the early 1990’s. The precast concrete poles are showing signs of deterioration and the lighting levels from the incandescent lights are inadequate and inconsistent with other Village lighting. As part of this project, deteriorating poles will be replaced with new cast aluminum poles and fixtures that will more closely match the downtown, including new LED lamps. Fiscal Year 2019 begins the first phase of several over a ten year period to replace commuter parking lot poles and fixtures. The conversion to LED lighting will increase the life expectancy of the lamps and result in the reduction of energy and operational costs.

  • Total Project Cost: $130,000
  • Project Contractor: Jasco Electric, Co.
  • Project Start Date: December 3, 2018
  • Project Completion Date: March 31, 2019
  • Project Manager: Donald Kirk, General Superintendent
  • Resident Impacts: Some intermittent loss of parking in the commuter lot.
  • Construction Update  - Month of March: The contractor has completed work on directional boring the new electrical conduit and installation of the concrete light pole bases. New light poles and light heads have been delivered and will be installed the week of March 18, 2019. Once completed old light poles will be removed.

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Program In Progress

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Program Project Background

This year, sanitary sewer lining, sanitary manhole rehabilitation and the next phase of engineering for inflow/infiltration (I/I) compliance will occur in the area generally north of Dundee Road and west of the UP-North railroad tracks (extending somewhat further south and east in some locations as seen in the map at right).

The Village's sanitary sewer system consists of 40 miles of sanitary sewer main, 900 manholes and eight lift stations. Sanitary sewer lining is a trenchless technology that involves pulling a new liner through an old pipe. Through a process of inflating and curing the material, the pipe is rehabilitated. Lining sanitary sewer mains eliminates inflow and infiltration which contribute to charging the sanitary sewer and results in basement backups. The Village hired an engineering consultant in Fiscal Year 2018 to assist staff in selecting a targeted priority area within the Village system to perform detailed investigation through smoke testing, televising of sewer main, and physical inspections of manholes to check for (I/I). 

Notification letters have been mailed to properties that will be directly impacted by excavations and other construction related activities.

Ravine Outfall Improvement Project 
In Progress

Ravine Outfall Improvement Project

Approximately half of the Village’s storm sewer system (east of Green Bay Road) drains to Lake Michigan, primarily through seven natural ravines and ravine systems east of Green Bay Road. Storm sewer outfall structures exist where the Village storm sewer system discharges into the bottom of each of these ravines.

These outfall structures serve to reduce and control the velocity of the discharge from the storm sewer and protect the ravine areas from erosion, which is critical to ensure the stability and viability of Glencoe’s unique system of ravines. There are also outfall structures that discharge directly to Lake Michigan at street end right-of-way locations. Improvements to ravine and Lake Michigan storm sewer outfalls are critical to the Village’s storm sewer systems and drainage basins that they serve. Work will occur at the following locations:

  • South Avenue Outfall Improvements will consist of the installation of a new hydrodynamic separator structure onto the existing storm sewer to filter out sediment and debris from the storm flow and restoration of the bluff slope.
  • Sylvan Road Outfall Improvements will consist of replacement of the storm sewer outfall structure and stabilization of ravine area downstream of the Sylvan Road Bridge.
  • Aspen Lane Outfall Improvements will consist of upgrading the 24-inch storm sewer outfall and stabilizing the ravine down to Lake Michigan.
  • Total Project Cost: $555,280
  • Project Engineer: Baxter & Woodman, Inc.
  • Project Contractor: Landmark Contractors, Inc.
  • Project Start Date: November 27, 2018
  • Project Completion Date: May 1, 2019
  • Project Manager: Anna Kesler, Village Engineer
  • Construction Update  - Month of MarchThe contractor has completed the storm sewer and ravine stabilization work at Aspen Lane, installed the storm sewer junction box and weir wall at Sylvan Road and is working to install the structure at South Avenue. Completion of the toe stabilization wall at Sylvan Road is expected to be completed in the next month but final restoration work at all three sites will carry over until spring.
