Project Information

This project will consist of up to four (4) phases, as shown in the map below, that will be constructed over the next few years.   Once completed, this project will result in improved drainage for residents on Park Street, and will alleviate storm sewer surcharging at Meadow Drive and South Street.  

This Phase 1 project includes the installation of storm sewer pipe along the south sides of the Kimball Hill School and the Park District properties, with discharge near Salt Creek.  The incorporation of bio-swales and natural detention areas as part of these improvements is planned to provide educational opportunities for students.

This work is tentatively set to begin Monday, August 5, 2023. Please see the link on the left side of the page for the 2023 Jewel Shopping Center Water Main Project for more information.
