Club Circle, Lilac Lane and Poplar Drive Road
Club Circle, Lilac Lane, Merrie Lane and Poplar Drive Project Update: Staff has received an updated schedule from our contractor performing work on Club, Lilac, Merrie and Poplar. Payne and Dolan will be on site this Friday, September 28, to patch the manholes along Club, Lilac and Merrie and then will sweep the roads and touch up the joints adjacent to the driveways on Saturday. They will then pave Club, Lilac and Merrie on Monday, October 1. Prior to paving, the contractor will place an oily, sticky liquid (called a tack coat) on the existing road which binds the bottom layer of asphalt to the top layer. Residents should avoid driving on the tack coat until the top layer of asphalt has been paved. Similar to the work that was done on Poplar, it is anticipated that the tack coat will be applied immediately ahead of the paving machine to minimize the impacts to residents. After the top layer of asphalt is placed, residents should avoid sharp turns on the pavement until it has been rolled and cooled (about two to three hours) but will be able to be driven on right after it has been rolled out.
The landscape contractor (All-Ways) is continuing to remove buckthorn and other weedy material from the areas to be ditched along Club and Lilac. All-Ways will be on-site on Saturday as well to perform the ditching activities along Club and Lilac. Landscape restoration activities include topsoil, seed, fertilizer and mulch and will be started on Poplar next Monday, October 1, with the landscape restoration activities beginning on Club, Lilac and Merrie later next week into the week of October 8th. All activities, of course, are weather permitting and may be shifted a couple of days should there be rain events. If the schedule changes dramatically, an additional update will be posted on the Village website.
