In coordination with Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Building a New Chicago infrastructure investment program, and at Alderman Reboyras’ request, I would like to provide you with information about an upcoming water main construction project in your neighborhood.
By early February 2017, Department of Water Management (DWM) and NPL Construction Co. crews will begin the work to install 3,104 feet of new 12-inch water main in N. Cicero Avenue, from W. Irving Park Road to W. Addison Street. The old water main dates back to 1897, and needs to be replaced.
If you would like to receive regular email updates about the progress of the project, please go to BuildingANewChicago.org to register for the WaterALERT program. Simply enter your name, email address and the project identification number at the top of this letter.
Should you have any questions or concerns, you can either ask the construction foreman during the project, or call any of the following numbers:

Riis Park on Chicago’s West Side will receive a $600,000 investment to replace an existing cinder track with a new asphalt track. The money will also help repair 10 of the park’s tennis courts. Alderman Ariel Reboyras and Park District Superintendent Michael Kelly said the investment will benefit the entire community.
