Sawing concrete

The Village received the following US Route 30 construction update from the Illinois Department of Transportation regarding night-time operations on the US Route 30 project:

The Illinois Dept. of Transportation and Plote Construction Company continue to make progress on the US Route 30 widening project between Briarcliff Road and US Route 34.

The next phase of the work involves concrete paving of the west bound lanes between Fifth Street and Briarcliff Road. Plote is scheduled to continue paving the week of October 14 from Fifth Street to Douglas Rd and then from Douglas Rd to the west limit near Briarcliff Rd. Plote anticipates two days’ worth of paving operations to pass by the residential area between Douglas Rd and Briarcliff Rd.

As part of the concrete paving construction, the newly placed concrete must cure for a period of time and then be saw cut at predetermined points to minimize concrete cracking. All paving will be done during daytime hours and the saw cutting of the concrete will begin as soon as the concrete hardens enough to not ravel but still control the cracking.

The saw cutting will begin at dusk and continue into the night. The first concrete pour is scheduled for Monday 10/14/13 with saw cutting overnight. The second concrete pour up to the midpoint between Douglas Rd and Briarcliff Road is scheduled for Wednesday, 10/16/13 with saw cutting into the night, and the last pour will be Thursday or Friday.
