The Village of Deerfield selected Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) to perform the design and construction management of the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Greenwood Avenue. This included the replacement of Village water main and the rehabilitation of the sanitary and storm sewers. Other improvements include ADA upgrades and minor traffic signal upgrades.

Greenwood Avenue is a residential street but also serves as a common cut-through, with traffic volume up to 2,850 vehicles per day. An appropriate MOT plan was crucial to this project. Ensuring access to the Village’s Woodland Park was vital to minimizing disruptions to scheduled athletic activities and recreational use. In addition, access to the Deerfield Metra station was also impacted, as the sole access to the Metra parking lot is provided from Chestnut Street, which intersects Greenwood Avenue. The rail line presented an additional consideration, as the project limits included an at-grade railroad crossing and further coordination with the Canadian National Railroad and/or Metra.
