Lake in the Hills waives noise rules for Jessie Road bridge project

LAKE IN THE HILLS – As work takes places on the Jessie Road bridge replacement project, it may get a bit noisy.

The village has waived noise rules for Campanella and Sons, Inc. from 8 a.m. Friday through 7:30 a.m. Thursday, July 3, and from 7 a.m. July 7 through 7:30 p.m. July 11.

The waiver will be good for 24 hours a day.

Campanella and Sons is constructing the new bridge culverts for the project. Concrete needs to be poured for the project, according to a memo written by Public Works Director Fred Mullard.

"In order to stop the flow of water for the concrete to properly cure, a large pump will be needed to bypass the water from Lake Scott across Jessie Road to Crystal Creek," Mullard wrote in a village memo. "Granting this waiver will allow the pump to operate giving the concrete time to cure for each set of pours."

In the event of weather delays, an additional five days will be allowed from 8 p.m. July 11 through 7:30 a.m. July 18.
