This summer, Nicor and its subcontractor, NPL, will be replacing the natural gas distribution system, including gas mains and meters, throughout much of the north end of the Village (primarily north of Division Street). Village staff has reviewed Nicor’s plans and have approved the proposed work. Nicor and NPL have provided informational letters and a door hanger to residents in the affected area. Additional copies are available upon request at the Village Hall (708-366-8500). They have asked that residents in the affected area locate private underground utilities (the most common of which are sprinklers and invisible dog barriers).
Nicor and its subcontractors have begun performing preliminary work throughout the project area, including data acquisition. They have not yet begun installing new infrastructure. Village staff continues to work closely with Nicor staff and NPL to determine project phasing and timeframes, and to ensure that the project continues in an efficient and minimally invasive manner. Updates will be provided via the Village’s website and e-news as they become available.
