Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) was retained by the Village of Long Grove to provide construction engineering services for this 1.11-mile resurfacing and reconstruction project on one of the Village’s major collector routes from IL Route 22 to Gilmer Road. This project utilized Surface Transportation Program (STP) funding provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and local funds. The proposed improvements consisted of partial roadway reconstruction and widening, pavement pulverization, storm sewer and open ditch drainage improvements, pavement markings, and landscape improvements. Due to the scope of improvements and related impacts, this project also required a major temporary detour route and phased construction.

North Krueger Road is a heavily traveled cut-through street with eight adjacent subdivisions that rely solely on North Krueger Road for access. Construction coordination with the Contractor was imperative to keeping these subdivision access roads as well as North Krueger Road accessible for local vehicular traffic.

To effectively communicate to the traveling public and local residents, GHA created and maintained a project specific website with timely updates that included project accomplishments, schedule status and changes, and pertinent contact information.

GHA provided contract administration and full-time construction engineering services in accordance with IDOT procedures.
