NOTICES AND UPCOMING EVENTS:

1. Detours, Closures, and Final Roadway Restoration:
All roadway restoration work has been completed. No future detours or closures are expected.

2. Restoration of Sidewalks:
All sidewalk restoration work has been completed. No future detours or closures are expected.

3. Restoration of Wescott Park:
The restoration of Wescott Park is underway with placement of new sod across the complete Park, and restoration of the baseball infield. Signs have been placed around the Park to advise residents to refrain from playing in the Park until future notice.
While the Park may begin to appear to be ready for recreational activities, it will take time for the newly-placed sod and infield surface to substantially knit with the subgrade to sufficiently support foot traffic and activities without damage and disruption to the surfaces.

4. Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony in Wescott Park:
A ceremony is scheduled for 10:00am on November 15th to commemorate the success of this unique and awarded Project. The Village of Northbrook and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago will celebrate with a ribbon-cutting with the attendance of the Engineer and Contractor personnel. Residents are invited to attend.
