Deerfield Road will be closed at the Metra underpass from 9 p.m. today until 4:30 a.m. Friday for painting, according to Deerfield Chief Project Engineer John Guccione.
The underpass will be painted during that time. Alternative routes across the railroad tracks are Osterman Avenue a block to the south and Hazel Avenue a few blocks to the north.
Several neighborhood repavement projects began Tuesday in three different parts of the Village and should be complete by the end of next week, according to an email from Guccione. Pavement removal has begun and new roadway will be laid next week.
Camille, Rago, Williams and Davis Avenues will be repaved between Crowe Avenue and Chestnut Street. Crowe will be repaved between Camille and North Avenue.
In a second project, Cumnor Court will be repaved between Warrington Road and Carlisle Place while Carlisle will get a new surface between Cumnor and Warwick. Warwick will be replaced between Carlisle and Oxford Road. A third effort will put new pavement on Elmwood Avenue between Stratford Road and Chestnut.
During the day, some driveway access may be limited but residents will have access to their property most of the time, according to Guccione. He also wants drivers to slow down when they see “fresh oil” signs.
“Driving at higher speeds through fresh oil may cause the material to adhere to the undercarriage and/or fenders of the car, which can be difficult and costly to remove,” Guccione said.
