Mundelein officials plan to undertake an estimated $4.4 million in road and infrastructure improvements this summer -- and you can learn about the projects at an upcoming community meeting.

Representatives of the public works department will host an open house about the pending construction work Feb. 20 at village hall, 300 Plaza Circle. It will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

 

The projects all are on the village's north side. They call for:

• Repaving and other work on stretches of Banbury Street, Dunleer Drive, Dairy Lane and Rye Road.

• The reconstruction of Londonderry Court and Braemar Drive.

• A water main replacement on Edgemont Street, between Londonderry Court and Route 45.

Public works crews also will replace a water main in the North Hills development. That's north of Mundelein's village limits, but the village handles water and sewer service there.

The North Hills water main replacement should cost about $1.4 million, Public Works Director Adam Boeche said. The other projects will cost about $3 million.

"The projects have yet to go out to bid, so these are just preliminary budget estimates," Boeche said.

All the work should be done by fall.

Last year's summer road projects cost about $2.5 million. The sum is higher this year because of the utility projects, Boeche said.

The Feb. 20 open house is an annual event for the public works department. It's been held the last three years.
