DiMeo Brothers, Inc. has been awarded the contract to perform construction of the Roadway and Infrastructure Project. The project will consist of installation of new storm sewer, replacement of a water main, reconstruction of roadways to include curb and gutter along streets that do not currently have curb and gutter and resurfacing of streets in the project area that already have curb and gutter.
In an ongoing effort to improve the stormwater drainage throughout the community, the Village will be installing storm sewers in the area between North Street and Orchard Street and between Maple Ave. and Linden Street. There will be two main storm sewers that will be installed. One main line will run along Elm Street from North Street to Orchard Street. The second main line will run along Center Street from Maple Avenue to Walnut Street, continuing south on Walnut Street and east along Orchard Street. This project will also include replacement of 80+ year old watermain along the streets that are to be reconstructed.
Completion of the storm sewer of this project will allow for systematic abandonment of an ancient common interest drain that currently runs in the rear yards of many properties between North Street and Orchard Street.
NOTE: There will also be a separate Lead Water Service Line replacement program that will be done in conjunction with this project, where any water service lines along the project area that are determined to be made of lead will be replaced with service lines made of copper. Please visit the Lead Service Line Replacement Program project information for additional information.
