Capital Improvement Projects
The City of Chicago meets with the Alderman in January or February of every year to discuss projects they have engineered for the coming year. CDOT pulls statistical data from all 311 reports and problem locations they have recognized through ward surveys done in the past year. This data shows suggested electrical, street, alley, curb and gutter improvements that are of concern in the ward. Department of Water Management brings forward plans from their 100 year old main project, problem sewers and catch basins. We often receive People’s Gas and Com Ed projects that are estimated for the coming year as well. None of these have firm start and completion dates. Some are still in the bidding process and others will be put off until next year due to engineering adjustment, protocol or material changes and simply timing of special events and activities that affect the location.
