Westmont Construction Project Updates

Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: Oct. 13, 2023

Construction Updates 2

There have been a number of construction projects in Westmont this year.  Following are updates regarding several of these projects.

CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS UPDATE

WEST QUINCY STREETSCAPE PROJECT

Work on the West Quincy Streetscape project continues. Brick pavers are currently being installed on the south side of Quincy, beginning on the west side of the project and continuing towards Cass Avenue. This work is expected to be completed in time for Trick or Treat Trail on Saturday, Oct. 21.

On the northside of West Quincy, storm sewer, drain tile, and tree cells are currently being installed. Weather permitting, concrete work on the north side is expected to begin on October 25. Substantial completion of this project is expected in November, weather permitting.

AFTER-HOUR DROP BOX / MAILBOX RELOCATED

Due to the construction on West Quincy Street, the Village of Westmont After-Hours Payment Drop Box and the Downers Grove Sanitary District Drop Box, which were previously located near the west side of the train station on West Quincy Street across from Village Hall, have been relocated to about one block further west on Quincy Street.  The two drop boxes are located on the south side of Quincy Street just before South Grant Street. Signage is posted to help residents locate these drop boxes.

DOWNTOWN ALLEY PROJECTS

Alley G, which is located west of Cass between Quincy and Richmond, is substantially completed. Restoration and minor cleanup is remaining. Access to all driveways and parking areas has been fully restored. 

Alley H, which is located west of Cass from Richmond to Dallas, has become stalled on the pervious concrete stage for numerous reasons. Pervious concrete is a specialized concrete mix that has specific manufacturing, transport, temperature and installation requirements. Specialized training and equipment is required to install it, making it a more complex process than the installation of regular concrete. Once placed, the pervious concrete must cure for 14 days prior to any vehicular traffic. The brick paver surface course can be installed after 7 days. Weather permitting, plans have been made to complete the pervious concrete installation within the next ten (10) days and the entire project to be completed by the end of November.  

Alley 1S, which is located between Lincoln and Grant from Quincy to 55th, continues with earth excavation starting at Richmond and continuing south. Framing of the concrete edge restraint has started at the north end and continues to work south from there. Concrete is expected to be poured next week with work continuing to progress from north to south. Weather permitting, this project is expected to be completed by late November.   

STREET RESURFACING PROJECT

In the Oakwood Subdivision, surface pavement has been installed on Arlington, Franklin, Monticello, and Philadelphia, as well as South Williams Street from 59th to 63rd. Concrete work is continuing on South Wilmette from 55th to East 60th.  Weather permitting, completion of this project is expected by the end of November.

CONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATES

The Village of Westmont has a construction project updates page on the Village website. The page is updated regularly by the Westmont Public Works Department with information regarding current and upcoming construction projects. The construction updates page also has a link to the GIS Construction Project Status Map. This webpage provides regular updates as well as allows citizens to see the exact location of the construction project.

“Construction season is always challenging for all parties involved,” said Amy Ries, Director of Public Works. “We appreciate everyone’s patience during this process and look forward to the successful completion of these projects.”

For more information regarding Village of Westmont construction projects, please contact Director Ries at aries@westmont.il.gov.
