Huntley Road Pavement Patching

UPDATE: From Monday, July 28 through Wednesday, July 30, 2014, pavement patching will take continue on Huntley Road in West Dundee.

Huntley Road will be closed to traffic from Sleepy Hollow Road to Tartans Drive between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

During the first week of patching, 37 tons of material were applied in the east bound lanes from Sleepy Hollow Road to just west of Hamilton (within 200 feet of entrance). The Public Works Dept expects to finish east bound lanes to Hamilton on Monday, July 28 and then begin west bound lanes from Hamilton to Sleepy Hollow Road. Patching between Hamilton and Tartans will be installed by Plote Construction, including one large patch in the east bound lanes at Westley, as part of the 2014 Street and Infrastructure Program later this summer.

The Village is urging commuters to find alternate routes during this time frame to alleviate the congestion in these areas. We appreciate your patience and cooperation while repairs are underway.

Emerald Ash Borer

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an adult beetle known for nibbling on ash foliage. It was determined that the larvae (the immature stage) feed on the inner bark and wood of ash trees, which disrupts the ability to transport water and nutrients causing dieback and death. The adult beetles are dark metallic green bullet-shaped and about 1/2 inch long, with a narrow and elongated body, flat head and black eyes. As they emerge trees they will leave a unique "D" shaped exit hole, approximately 1/8 inch in diameter that may appear on the trunk or upper branches. Millions of ash trees in the Midwest have been infested.

The EAB was first found in West Dundee on Market Loop in 2009. Since then, the Village has identified and removed over 900 parkway trees. This is just over 16%, or 1 out of every 6 parkway trees within the Village has been removed in those five years.

The Village of West Dundee conducts an annual tree assessment that begins in mid May. Tree removals begin shortly thereafter and continue on as resources allow. Locations where trees are to be removed will be notified from the Village with a letter informing them of why the tree was removed and what the process is for replacement.

If you feel your tree is infested, contact the Public Works Department at (847) 551-3815 and Village staff will come out to inspect the tree.
