A complete rebuilding of Deerfield Road from Rosemary Terrace to Ridge Road in Highland Park is among the nearly $20 million the Village Board of Trustees will discuss at 3 p.m. Thursday at Village Hall.
The Village will be looking at nearly $20 million in capital improvements through the end of 2016 and plans to determine which projects will take place during which year, according to Andrew Lichterman, assistant to Village Manager Kent Street.
After major work on Lake Cook and Half Day Roads the last three years, the Deerfield Road project could have the most significant impact on Village residents and those in surrounding communities.
The work east of Rosemary Terrace includes full reconstruction of the roadway, replacement of sewers and traffic signals. There will also be pavement patching, grinding, resurfacing and cosmetic work between the railroad underpass and Rosemary Terrace.
At this point, the project is scheduled to start in March and end the following October. Of the $13.5 million cost, $3.1 million will be paid by Deerfield, $1.3 million by Highland Park and $9.1 from a federal government grant.
Another item on the agenda is $3.5 million of infrastructure work in the North Trails subdivision aimed in part at relieving some of the flooding there during and after heavy rains. Residents of that neighborhood talked to the Village Board about the situation in June.
Work on Briarwood Vista for $5 million and Woodvale Avenue for $1.1 million are also set for discussion. The complete agenda and details on all the projects can be found on the Village’s website.
