2019 Water Main Replacement Project
The Village of Bensenville is undertaking a watermain replacement project in the vicinity of your home in the spring/summer of 2019. The project mainly consists of replacing approximately 3,500 linear feet of watermain within the project limits. As part of this project, the Village will also be replacing water service up to the existing b-box, conducting spot curb and gutter repairs, spot sidewalk repairs, some driveway aprons anticipated to be impacted by the construction, roadway resurfacing, parkway restoration and other miscellaneous items as necessary.
Late last year the Village hired James J Benes & Associates (JJB) of Lisle, IL to provide design engineering services on the project. Over the past few months, JJB has put together the necessary plans and specifications to construct the project. The Village recently went to bid on the project. Bolder Contractors of Cary, IL was the low apparent responsible bidder on this project. Bolder comes with many years of experience in utility installation of this magnitude. Bolder will likely utilize services of other sub-contractors to complete the asphalt and curb work proposed on the project. The contract award to Bolder is anticipated at the March 26, 2019 Village Board meeting... READ FULL INFORMATION LETTER
