In April, Department of Water Management (DWM) crews will begin to install new 24-inch sewer main in N. Burling St. from W. Diversey Pkwy. to 580 feet North. The old sewer main needs to be replaced.
Crews will post the work area for “No Parking” as needed during work hours (generally 7 a.m.-4 p.m.). We are agreeable to parking outside of those hours, but cars will need to be moved by the start of the next workday. We will work with the crew to try to preserve as much parking as possible.
We know that construction always involves inconveniences and noise. Crews will do everything possible to maintain your quality of life throughout these projects, and conducting themselves as good and thoughtful neighbors in the course of their presence on your street.
Before any project, the Department of Water Management (DWM) takes photographs of the street and surrounding properties. These photographs help us restore the area to its pre-construction state. However, DWM does not assume responsibility for damage to privately installed parkway improvements, including sprinkling systems, fences, flower beds and shrubbery.
New sewer construction is not complete until damaged sidewalks, parkways and streets have been repaired.
Should you have any questions or concerns, you can either ask the construction foreman during the project, or call any of the following numbers:
