Current Capitol Improvement Projects

Capital improvements are projects with long useful lives that maintain, upgrade or replace public infrastructure and public service providing facilities. Each year, the City of Chicago produces a CIP, a spending "blueprint" based upon the most current revenue projections and project priorities. Continued investments in infrastructure and facilities are critical to support and enhance neighborhoods, stimulate the economy and improve services. Examples of Capital Improvement Projects are: water & sewer mains, new police stations, sewer lining, road reconstruction and more.


2017 Capitol Improvement Projects


Arterial Resurfacing Projects


Lake Shore Drive (Inner) Arterial Resurfacing:
 

UPDATE: CDOT and Bigane crews will complete all concrete work along the east side of Lake Shore Drive by the end of December 2017. A decision has been made to hold off on milling and asphalt paving until the spring of 2018. Asphalt paving in the spring will allow the asphalt to set under warmer conditions that will produce a final product that will better withstand Chicago's harsh weather and vehicular wear and tear.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This work is part of the Chicago Department of Transportation's Arterial Street Resurfacing within the 44th Ward.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin on October 23, 2017, pending clearance from and coordination with existing utilities, and weather permitting. Bigane Paving Company is the general contractor for this project and for the Chicago Department of Transportation.

The work will include ADA sidewalk improvements, curb and gutter removal and replacement, bus pad construction, milling and paving the existing asphalt pavement, and striping.

During construction, temporary "No Parking" signs will be periodically posted as needed for each activity listed above. These temporary signs will restrict parking during working hours, while adhering to rush hour restrictions, for the completion of the work. All work on this corridor is scheduled to be completed by December 31, 2017.

For additional information please contact Dionisios "Dan" Manoli in my office at 773-525-6034 or via email: Dionisios.Manoli@cityofchicago.org.

Thank you in advance for your patience throughout construction.

Sewer Main Projects

Sheridan Sewer Lining (Belmont to Wellington):

The Department of Water Management and Kenny Construction are scheduled to work on this Sewer Lining Project in mid to late-February. The crews will be lining approximately 1,285ft of the 42 inch Sheridan sewer main from Belmont to Wellington.

During work days, mobilization will start at 6:00 am. Actual work will begin at 7:00 am. Work is expected to be completed at 3:00 pm. No Parking signs wil be posted in the immediate area of work a day before any scheduled work. Residents are urged to move their vehicles away from the work site to avoid being towed. It will be necessare to reduce traffic lane usage to ensure public safety during work hours. Equipment and materials will be on the street during the work. If necessary, detours and alternative bus stops may be posted.

During the main sewer line work, to prevent odors in your home, please pour two to three cups of water into each basement floor drain. Please restrict your water usage as much as possible. A City Engineer will be on site during the work to answer any questions from the residents.

Should you have any questions or concerns, you can either ask the City Engineer during the project, or contact Dionisios "Dan" Manoli in my office at 773.525.6034 or Dionisios.Manoli@cityofchicago.org.

Will you shut my water off?  Yes, maybe a couple of times. When we switch over the services from the old main to the new main, we interrupt service. We give you 24-hour notice when this is to happen.  In any construction project, there is also a risk that an old pipe will break. They can be fragile. This may necessitate an emergency shutdown.  If we do this, we will let you know what is happening, even though we may be unable to give prior warning.

After your old water main has been replaced and you have been connected to your new water main, please open all your water faucets and hose taps and flush your water for 3 to 5 minutes. Sediment and metals can collect in the aerator screen located at the tip of your faucets. These screens should be removed prior to flushing. This flushing will help maintain optimum water quality by removing sediment, rust, or any lead particulates that may have come loose from your property’s water service line as a result of the water main replacement. If you have any questions or concerns about your water quality, please call 312-744-8190.

Diversey Sewer Main (Sheffield to Diversey):

Due to sewer main construction on Diversey from Sheffield to Racine, the southbound lane of Sheffield is closed at the Diversey intersection and the eastbound lane of Diversey will be closed from Seminary to Sheffield for approximately 1-2 weeks.  The Diversey closure is scheduled to begin after the work has been completed at the Sheffield and Diversey intersection – approximately 1 to 2 weeks from today, October 7.  Westbound Diversey and Northbound Sheffield will remain open at all times.

To navigate around both street closures, please follow detour signs posted near the construction. The southbound Sheffield detour will have vehicles turn west onto Belmont and then south onto Racine,  The Eastbound Diversey detour will have vehicles turn south on Racine to Fullerton, east along Fullerton to Halsted, then north on Halsted to Diversey.  The 76 Diversey bus will operate along the detour route. 

In addition to the street closures, the construction will involve some inconvenience, noise, dust and parking restrictions.  The construction crew will do everything possible to minimize the inconvenience and noise, and to conduct themselves as good and thoughtful neighbors through the course of their work.  We apologize for any inconvenience the construction may cause.  Thank you for your understanding as this project proceeds.
