Current Construction Projects
The Village of Winnetka continues to change and improve, often with the help of public infrastructure projects. We strive to provide up-to-date information about the projects with the most impact on those living, working, and visiting the community. Please keep in mind that construction zones can be dangerous. The Village encourages everyone to heed construction signs and warnings and to ensure that children do not play on or near construction sites.

Boal Parkway Stormwater Pump Station Project
New Update as of 5/8/20
A kick-off meeting was held on Wednesday with the Contractor, representatives from the Engineering Design firm, and staff. The meeting focused on the proposed schedule for the upcoming work, coordination with the Water and Electric Department, and the pump station layout. Due to the lengthy lead time for some of the critical components such as the pumps and the controller cabinet work is not expected to commence until early August. Once work begins it is expected to be substantially completed within 2 to 3 months, weather dependent.
