Project Manager: Greg Boldt
Engineering Division: Adriana Webb
This project consists of resurfacing work on the major roads that run through the Glen: The Glen Town Center (Tower Drive, Navy Boulevard, Valor Drive, Sable Drive, Wolverine Drive and Aviator Lane), West Lake Avenue from Patriot Boulevard to Lehigh Avenue, Shermer Road from West Lake Avenue to northerly project limits, Lehigh Avenue from East Lake Avenue Bridge to Patriot Boulevard, and Compass Road from Lehigh Avenue to Patriot Boulevard. Along with a new asphalt surface repairs will be made to drainage structure, curb and gutters and sidewalks.
The Glen Main stem road were built between 1998 and 2001, as the former Glenview Naval Air Station was being redeveloped into The Glen. Typically with new development, the final roadway surface course in not placed until after 90 percent of homes or businesses are occupied to limit wear and tear from construction traffic. In this case, however, the main road served as major connector through the community, and therefore needed the final surface course earlier than they originally would have. With this decision, the Village programmed one additional resurfacing project prior to retirement of The Glen TIF. In 2016, Phase I of the roadway resurfacing was completed. This project is Phase II and final.
