With construction moving ahead at the second Mather Lifeways building on Davis Street, it’s time to remove the tower crane from the site — and that means Davis Street will be closed for a week starting Monday.
In addition, city officials say, the alley behind the new building will be closed for about a month.
Here’s the full, four-stage schedule:
Stage 1 – Oct. 31 to Nov. 2
Work to dismantle the tower crane will begin Monday morning. Davis Street will be closed through the day and night from Judson to Hinman avenues. The alley will be closed north of the Mather South property line. All deliveries and truck staging will be taken from Hinman. Davis will reopen at the end of the workday Wednesday.
Stage 2 – Nov. 3 to Nov. 4
The barrier wall on Davis and Hinman will be removed and replaced with type 2 barricades. Davis will be closed from Judson to Hinman during working hours only for this work. The north traffic lane will be reopened after work hours. The alley will remain closed.
Stage 3 – Nov. 7 to about Nov. 30
The alley will be fully closed for demolition, underground utilities, and repaving. Curbs will be removed and replaced on the south side of Davis and east side of Hinman and new sidewalks will be installed.
The south lane of Davis will remain closed and the Hinman parking lane will remain closed.
Stage 4 – About Nov. 28 to Dec. 2
Once curbs and sidewalks are completed on Davis and Hinman, Davis will be ground and fully paved from Judson to Hinman, and an approximate three-foot strip of pavement adjacent to the east curb on Hinman will be ground and repaved. Davis is repaved full width from curb to curb, and will require closure during working hours for the grinding and paving operation.
The contractor managing the temporary street closure and equipment mobilization is Power Construction Company, LLC of Schaumburg.
