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.

The 2020 Street Rehabilitation project has begun. This year, the Village will be undertaking several large construction projects during the 2020 construction season, which will be completed under one contract. Village Council awarded this year’s contract to A Lamp Concrete Contractors, Inc. The program includes Street Rehabilitation, Pavement Patching, and Pavement Striping, throughout various locations in the Village.
New Update as of 7/31/20
This week the Contractor, A Lamp Concrete Contractors, Inc, substantially completed the installation of the new watermain and fire hydrants on Westmoor Rd. Next week the Contractor is expected to fill the main and perform the required testing before transferring water services from the old main to the new main. The transferring work is expected to begin the week of August 10th.
The Contractor is also waiting for the final approval from the IEPA to begin the transferring of the water services on Mount Pleasant. The Village anticipates the approval from the IEPA early next week with the work commencing immediately after. Once this work is completed the Contractor can begin roadway and restoration work activities.

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.
