Summer Construction Update


Road Resurfacing


The Village of Lake Zurich is pleased to advise you that it has contracted with Arrow Road Construction. to provide road resurfacing on certain streets in the Industrial Park. Please consult the map below for a specific list of the streets. The work will consist of removal and resurfacing of the existing pavement, and removal and replacing of the existing curb, gutter, and sidewalk as needed. Construction activities will be limited to 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday - Friday and 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday.

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, July 6 with an estimated completion date of September 18.

Please note that until the project is complete, on street parking will not be permitted at any time during construction hours, even if there appears to be no construction taking place on your road. This will allow the engineer/inspector and the contractor to work unimpeded. Cars parked or left on the street during the hours of construction may be ticketed and/or towed at the owner's expense. Listed below is a description of the various steps involved in this project.   

Curb/Gutter/Sidewalk – Remove and Replace: Curb, gutter and sidewalk will be removed and replaced at locations determined by the Village. Residents will be notified one (1) day in advance of any work that may require temporary driveway closure. Privately-owned dog fence systems and irrigation systems located within the public right-of-way are the responsibility of the property owner. Residents are encouraged to have systems marked prior to construction and the crews will do their best to accommodate. Repair or replacement of any of these systems that are damaged during construction or as a result of the construction will be the sole responsibility of the owner.

Pavement Milling: The existing roadway will be milled to a depth specified by the contract. This will in effect lower the road temporarily. Access to your driveway should not be impacted during this process, but we ask you to please enter your driveway with caution due to the increased curb height during this stage of construction.

Pavement Patching: Following the pavement milling, the engineer/inspector will identify areas of road base failure.  These areas will be sawcut, removed and filled with asphalt to the depth specified by the contract.  Residents are advised to use extra caution when traveling near the patching and barricaded areas.

Prime Coat (Oil) Placement: A layer of prime coat will be placed immediately prior to the placement of the new asphalt surface layer. This prime coat can be very difficult to remove if it happens to get splashed onto your vehicle or tracked onto your driveway. Avoid driving on the prime coat when at all possible. If unavoidable, please drive as slowly as possible.

Roadway Paving: Following the prime coat treatment, fresh asphalt will be placed on your roadway. The final product can be adversely affected by excessive vehicular traffic during placement. Please limit the number of trips through the area of construction.   Access to your driveway during this process may be temporarily restricted. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this project. Residents with questions or concerns during construction are asked to contact Construction Manager David Knight Johnson at 847-325-7233 or DKnightJohnson@manhard.comFor general project questions, contact Public Works Manager Mike Brown at 847-540-5066 or Mike.Brown@lakezurich.org
