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.

Street Rehabilitation Program
The 2021 Street Rehabilitation project has begun.
Birch Street – Water main Replacement and Road Rehabilitation
Underground utility work is still the focus of the rehabilitation work currently being completed on Birch Street. The majority of this underground work is the installation of a new 12-inch water main. The installation of the water main in the section of Elm and Oak is completed. As Birch street is very narrow, the contractor is working in roadway sections. When the contractor is working on a section, that section of roadway is closed to through traffic during normal construction hours.
Reconstruction of Birch Street & Pine Street Parking Lot
The contractor is preparing the base for the new concrete pavement. This work includes the installation of the geotechnical fabric for ground stabilization. The contractor is planning to install the concrete pavement the week of April 19. During construction, the parking lot will remain closed.
