DHCA Annual Meeting - CSO Recap
Posted on Oct 21st, 2019

Dearborn Hills Civic Association Annual Meeting -- October 1, 2019

CSO Update
At our recent Annual Meeting, held at the Dearborn Administrative Center, among other topics, we were given an update on the status of the CSO Project in our neighborhood.
Mr. Jim Murray, Director of the Department of Public Works, and Mr. Yunus Patel, the City’s CSO Project Manager filled us in on the status of the current work being done, as well as the plan for the next couple of years.
Regarding the current work being done, we were told that all sections currently being worked on will either be paved in concrete or black-topped before November 15.  The intersections where Meridan, Berkley, Mohawk, Emerson etc. meet Marshall, Rockford, Lafayette, etc. will be black-topped for the winter.  The Rockford/Emerson/Mohawk intersection will all be black-topped for the winter also.  There will not be any sections of road left with just gravel for the winter.  Any blacktop laid down is just temporary.  Long term, all street surfaces will be concrete.
It is also the City’s goal to have all the currently affected sidewalks & driveways paved with concrete this year as well.  They will try to get as much landscaping done as possible, but will follow up next spring on any areas not completed this year.
Going forward, the current plans are for the City to complete the rest of the neighborhood by the end of 2021.  Next Spring, in 2020, the City plans to have two separate contractors working on two separate parts of the neighborhood.  We have attached a diagram given us by the City that shows these now current plans for next year and the year after that. As you can see from the diagram, there will be a LOT of work going on from one end of the neighborhood to the other. 
We know that this year’s CSO work has tested the patience of many of us and our neighbors.  We will all need to remain patient and flexible for a bit longer until this work is done.  Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concerns at
