The Village of Glenview

Construction Projects


The Village's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) reflects a strong commitment to maintain high-quality infrastructure for the benefit of residents and businesses in Glenview.

The map below shows the Capital Improvement Projects that will be completed in 2019. A larger version in its own window can be accessed here through ArcGIS online. 

Navigation tips:

5-year CIP

The Village annually updates its five-year Capital Improvement Program. Road projects to be included in the Capital Improvement Program are evaluated based on age; Infrastructure Management Services' ratings of the surface and base; staff evaluation; resident input; and scheduling of other improvements in the area.

Willow Road bridge replacement project

The Illinois Department of Transportation has awarded a more than $8.6 million contract to Lorig Construction of Des Plaines to rehabilitate and widen Willow Road over Lehigh Avenue and the Metra railroad tracks, east of Patriot Boulevard,.

The project involves completely removing, replacing and widening the bridge superstructure and substructure. The new bridge will have additional shoulders, a 10-foot-wide multi-path on the south side and 5-foot-wide sidewalk on the north side.

The work was scheduled to start May 20, 2019. No lanes of traffic are to be closed during morning (6 to 9 a.m.) and evening (3 to 6 p.m.) rush hour; however, temporary lane closures are to be expected.

To accommodate the widened bridge section within the current right-of-way, a retaining wall is to be constructed on the bridge's south side.

The Village is providing $1,842 so that the 10-foot-wide multi-path can be continued along the retaining wall. By doing so, the Village will be able to extend that path in the future to connect to the Techny Trail, the path that runs from Glenview to Northbrook.

The bridge's reconstruction is expected to take two years, and be completed in multiple stages.

GPS mapping project

Beginning June 24, 2019, representatives from the Village’s contractor, RMS Utility Services, and consultant, Baxter & Woodman Consulting Engineers of Crystal Lake, will be in a pilot area -- roughly bounded by East Lake Avenue, Lehigh and Harlem avenues, Central Road and Shermer Road -- in order to capture accurate GPS points on Village assets such as fire hydrants, water and sewer vaults, clean outs and water service boxes. The purpose of this study is to update the Village’s mapping system. Accurate mapping allows the Village to efficiently service the water, storm and sanitary system and allows for future planning and construction services.

Crews will have safety vests, shirts and ID badges and their vehicles will be marked with their company name. Call RMS Utility Services at (888) 655-4085 or the Village Public Works Department at (847) 657-3030 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays with questions.

Regional transportation projects

Other jurisdictions, such as the Illinois Department of Transportation and Cook County Highway Department, plan and undertake work on roads they own and maintain in the Glenview area.
