Update – 7/22/2021

Last week, storm sewer work began near the intersection of W Erhart Road and Fremont Center Road. Existing field tile crossing under Fremont Center Road was replaced with new concrete pipe. Storm sewer was installed at the new retention pond which will be located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Fremont Center Road and IL RT 60.

At the west end of the project, an existing storm sewer pipe crossing under IL RT 60 was extended to the south due to widening for the new right turn lane.

Earthwork also continued last week with geotechnical fabric, pipe underdrain, and aggregate subgrade being installed on Fremont Center Road.

This week, the remaining storm sewer work for the first stage of construction was completed. Earthwork continued along Fremont Center Road and IL RT 60 where the roadway will be widened. Electrical work also began as conduit was installed under the proposed roadway. Electrical work is expected to continue with the installation of temporary traffic signal poles in the coming days. The temporary signals will remain in place until construction of stage 2 is complete. They will then be replaced with permanent signals.
