Effective July 5, 2017, weather permitting, new traffic patterns and detours will be established in and around the Village of Riverside.
For the next phase of the MWRD Salt Creek Intercepting Sewer Rehabilitation Project, Kenny Construction will be working along Riverside Road from the downtown area southeast to Miller Road.
There will be no restriction on water/sewer usage, but contractors will need to access manholes near some homes. Work hours will typically be 7AM to 7PM Monday through Friday. Saturdays are optional. Due to the local and regional importance of this project, special permission has been granted to allow work to continue beyond normal construction hours, but accommodations will be made to limit noise disruptions.
The tentative start date for this phase of the project is July 5, 2017, and the duration of this phase will be 10-12 weeks. The planned completion date for the entire project is November 2018.
