Staff had a pre-construction meeting last Friday with the principals involved in the project. Work related to mobilization should start in a couple of weeks. That work will involve park district staff removing items and starting to install fencing. Currently the projected start date for major work is around March 1, 2018.

We are still in the permitting phase with Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) after receiving storm water approval from the Village of Tinley Park.
