Flossmoor Public Works to host information events on downtown viaduct drainage, Brookwood Bridge/Butterfield Culvert projects

The Flossmoor Public Works Department is hosting two open houses in January to help residents learn about upcoming village construction projects. 

Project engineers and village staff will be available both evenings to present the projects and answer residents’ questions. Both open house events will be held at Flossmoor Village Hall, 2800 Flossmoor Road.

From 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 23, residents can learn about the second phase of the Flossmoor Road Viaduct Drainage Improvement Project, set to begin this summer.

The first phase of the project — the Berry Lane Drainage Improvement Project — was completed in spring 2023 on Berry Lane, Bob-O-Link Road, Oakmont Avenue and Maryland Avenue. 

The next phase will include the installation of a large-scale storm sewer at the Flossmoor Road viaduct, running south on Sterling Avenue to Maryland Avenue, and also another large-scale storm sewer running south on Lawrence Crescent from Maryland Avenue to the Heather Hill Elementary School site, where a detention basin will be constructed behind the school.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24, residents can learn about the village’s upcoming Brookwood Bridge and Butterfield Road Culvert Reconstruction Project.

D Construction Inc. of Coal City will be starting work soon. The project will be inspected and overseen by Christopher B. Burke Engineering Ltd., and should last approximately four months. 

The project will mostly impact residents who live on Brookwood Drive or Butterfield Road. Residents will have access to their homes throughout the project.
