Current Construction Projects
Water Main Replacement Scheuring, Greenfield, and Blackberry Heights Water Main Lining
The Village of Montgomery is performing infrastructure maintenance on the water main in the areas of Scheuring and Greenfield. In order to complete this work they will need access to homes or businesses to install temporary, above-ground, water service bypass so water remains continuous during the construction.
The goal of this project is to replace and line water mains to ensure sustainable safe drinking water infrastructure.
Mulberry Drive Extension & Alignment Project
The Village of Montgomery is proposing the alignment of Mulberry Drive to extend north to Aucutt Road to ensure access and enhance safety on the Village's west side between Route 30 and Aucutt along Orchard Rd.
The Village held an open house concerning the proposed extension on Wednesday, January 31, from 6:00 to 8:00 in the community room at the Montgomery Police Department (10 Civic Center Dr.). More than 40 residents attended.
Those wanting to provide additional feedback or input can contact Chris Ott, P.E., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Montgomery Park Improvement Project | Mill District
Through an IGA with the Fox Valley Park District, the Village of Montgomery invests in Montgomery Park (301 N. River St.). Renovations include shoreline restoration, compensatory storage, installation of a gathering area with shade sails, and construction of a Veterans, First Responders, and Essential Workers Monument.
The project will take place in three phases. Currently, in phase two, a shade sail structure and gathering area are being constructed on the park's south side. Additionally, groundwork is being completed for the Veterans, First Responder, and Essential Worker Memorial along the River. The project is expected to be complete by mid-summer 2024.
Sewer Utility Work | East Montgomery
The Village has retained the services of Visu-Sewer of Illinois to inspect and install a cured-in-place liner for the sanitary sewer system in the following areas: Lake Street (between Ashland and Gray ), Broadway Ave., Henry Ct., Marsch Ave., Hartway Dr., and Keck Ave. (between Broadway and Lincoln), Lincoln Ave. (between Keck and Ashland), and Amber Dr.
Residents will receive notification of work 24 hours in advance. This will specify the date, time, and additional emergency contact information. For questions, contact Public Works at 630-896-9241.
Water Main Replacement Project | Boulder Hill
As part of the preparations for the water supply transition estimated between 2032-2035, the Village is working to update infrastructure throughout the community. Currently, the Village is working to replace water mains in several areas. This ongoing project begins with Boulder Hill and will replace aging water infrastructure over the next several years.

INFRASTRUCTURE & ROADWAY PROGRAM 2024
In 2020, Engineering Enterprises presented a five-year plan for road repairs to the Village Board. This document includes information on costs, funding, maps of the areas to be repaired, and a street-by-street listing. This plan provides a blueprint allowing the Village to resurface 37 miles of roadway over the next five years.
The Village Board, staff, representatives, local government leaders, architects, and construction management firm gathered Monday evening, May 9, at the future site of the new Village of Montgomery Public Works Building. The gathering commemorated the official groundbreaking of the new 75,304 square-foot facility, a long-awaited and necessary upgrade for the community.
The new building is directly adjacent to the current Public Works Building, built in 1974 and expanded in 1990 to accommodate the onsite Water Treatment Facility and additional storage. The aging facility will continue to house the water treatment operation and storage. Still, the new building will allow for enhanced fleet maintenance, equipment storage, staff facilities and offices, parking, access, and essential operational improvements.
Since 2000, the Village has more than doubled in size. The Department, responsible for the core and essential public services such as infrastructure and facility maintenance, roadway and signal repair, stormwater mitigation, water service, treatment, and waste, fleet maintenance, and emergency management, has continued to operate out of the 48-year-old building located at 891 Knell Road. The project has been in the works for several years now, and while COVID delayed and changed the original project timeline and scope, the Board and Staff are working hard to keep the project moving forward.
The Construction Management Firm for the project, Camosy Construction (Zion, IL), and the Project Architect, Williams Architects (Itasca, IL), were present Monday evening to meet with the Village elected officials and join the groundbreaking ceremony. The project will take approximately one year, with completion in March 2023. Despite a wet spring, the Village is championing the urgency of this project as the building will provide efficiencies to the essential municipal service provided by Public Works.
Once the project is complete, a formal ribbon-cutting for the public and stakeholders will occur for those interested in viewing and touring the facility and learning more about the Montgomery Public Works operations.

MAYFIELD DRIVE TRAFFIC CALMING
After reviewing a recent community survey of the residential homes along and adjacent to Mayfield Drive combined with multi-year traffic assessment data, the Village of Montgomery Village President and Board of Trustees decided to close the road to reduce traffic volume and increase safety to the Montgomery Crossings Townhomes and Saratoga Springs residential subdivisions. This decision was reviewed and voted on on May 24, 2021, Village Board Meeting (Meeting Minutes 05/24/21). Survey results overwhelmingly indicated that residents from both the Montgomery Crossings Townhomes and Saratoga Springs subdivisions favored closing the street to mitigate existing and future problems. If you were involved in this process, we thank you for your continued support and advocacy for safety in your subdivision.
The Village will place barriers north of the Mayfield Drive and Roxbury Lane intersection in July 2021. At this time, the road is now closed to local and through traffic. The Village of Montgomery Police Department will ticket those who do not comply.
The Village Board and staff will be closely monitoring and reviewing the success of the closure implementation. They will make a long-term decision on the closure of Mayfield Drive within the next calendar year, but this closure should be considered permanent moving forward.
