The Village of Buffalo Grove selected Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) to perform the engineering for the reconstruction of Thompson Boulevard between Buffalo Grove Road and Brandywyn Lane; and Brandywyn Lane between Thompson Boulevard and Aptakisic Road.

This project was funded by a combination of Surface Transportation Program funds provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and local funds. The work consists of full roadway reconstruction at its current width and alignment to an average depth of 21” inches. GHA established control for the project and completed pre-construction cross sections required for earthwork documentation.

GHA’s Resident Engineer (RE), along with support staff, were onsite full-time through the project. The RE was also available for clarifying questions from residents, site workers, and Village staff; and made recommendations for solutions to problems encountered during construction while communicating clearly with the Village, contractor and residents.
