US 30 Public Notification

Plainfield Road_001

This is a public alert of a construction project starting along Route 30 (Plainfield Road) and adjacent properties/streets.

As part of the ongoing infrastructure maintenance efforts, the City has contracted with Sheridan Plumbing & Sewer, Inc. to clean and install a structural lining inside the City’s existing water main. Sheridan is teaming with Fer Pal Construction USA LLC, who will be installing a temporary water supply to affected properties. 

Residents are being notified that during the week of June 26th, the contractor will begin delivering equipment and materials along with installing traffic control and stormwater protection measures. The city is still working with the contractor to finalize the overall construction schedule. The timeframe to complete this project is Fall of 2023.

In order to proceed with this work, portions of Route 30 will be excavated, plated and blocked off. Impacts to residential and business driveways will be inevitable but kept to a minimum when possible. No holes will be left open during non-working hours. During working hours, the number of lanes opened will be reduced to one for northwest bound traffic. Left turn movements for all traffic will be restricted during the entire construction project. 

Local traffic will have access to their properties during both working and non-working hours  . The Contractor may install “No Parking Signs” along side streets where necessary. These signs will be installed a minimum of 2 days in advance. 

Should you have any special requests for driveway access, ADA or other reasons please contact the either the city or the city’s consultant, see below for contact information. 

During the construction period, the existing water main and your water service will be temporarily by-passed. Your property will receive water through an above ground temporary piping network. A commercial water hose will connect the temporary water system to your building. Where the temporary pipe crosses a driveway, the pipe will be covered with fine asphalt millings, creating a temporary ramp so you will still have vehicular access to your property. You will receive notifications with further details regarding the temporary water supply and scheduling of service interruptions closer to the time when this temporary changeover will occur. 

We will do our best to keep this project moving forward. We are also working on providing information to the public at key times during the project schedule to minimize any surprises. Please be on the lookout for handouts and also check the City’s website and Facebook for information on this project and the status of work. The web address where updates can be found is under Crest Hill popular topics-check out the latest news.

We apologize for any inconvenience during this construction season, and truly appreciate your patience and cooperation during this project. Every attempt will be made to minimize interference with local activities; however, residents are advised to exercise caution around all construction areas/work areas, equipment and the temporary water main system.

Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact either John Hannigan, Construction Manager from Robinson Engineering at 815-693-9303 or email or Ronald J Wiedeman, P.E., Crest Hill City Engineer at 815-741-5122 or
