Greenmeadow Sanitary Interceptor Project

Project Update: October 12, 2018

This project will include installation of a new sanitary interceptor sewer from the intersection of Greenmeadow Dr. and Michigan Ave. to the intersection of College Ave. and Sentry Dr. in 2018 and 2019. This sewer will allow the elimination of the Greenmeadow and Woodfield pump stations. 

This week’s work:

  • Continued installation of dewatering wells in Lowell Park
  • Horizontal directional drilling work continued north from the City Garage on Sentry Dr towards the Fox River
  • Relocated storm sewer at the Madison St/Joellen Dr intersection

Next week’s work:

  • Continue installation of dewatering wells in Lowell Park
  • Mobilize equipment for open cut sewer work through Lowell Park
  • Begin shaft work at the Madison St/Joellen Dr intersection
  • Continue horizontal directional drilling work north from the City Garage on Sentry Dr and under the Fox River

Streets with restricted access for the next week:

  • Eastbound traffic on W St Paul Ave between Harris Highland Dr and S Moreland Blvd will be shifted over slightly to accommodate the work near GE Power and Water.  At least one lane in each direction will be maintained.
  • Because of area needed for shaft construction at the Madison St/Joellen Dr intersection, traffic on Madison St at Joellen Dr will be reduced to one way only westbound starting as early as next week.  Once this occurs, a detour route for eastbound traffic on Madison St will be set up.  It is anticipated this one way condition will last approximately 5 weeks.  See the traffic pattern layout sheet. 

Streets that will have No Access:

  • Joellen Dr at Madison St will be closed.

The Greenmeadow and Woodfield pump stations will be removed and a new gravity sanitary interceptor sewer will be installed. The sewer will be installed by both open cut and tunnel construction. See the route map for the sewer routing and locations of the open cut and tunnel construction stretches. Construction to begin Tuesday September 4, 2018.

A letter was sent on July 12 to Residents in the area explaining Utility Relocations.
