Staff Summary

                     The County has been allocated federal funds for this improvement at a maximum amount of $13,015,079, and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) administers all federal highway funds.

                     The County Board, at its November 13, 2018 meeting, approved an appropriation of $5,490,000 of ¼% Sales Tax for Transportation for this improvement.

                     During construction of the project, the location, age and material of the City of Waukegan’s existing watermain, between Dugdale Road and Greenfield Avenue, were found to be different from the City’s records and needs to be replaced.

                     During construction of the project, the material and age of the City of North Chicago’s existing watermain, between Greenfield Avenue and Jackson Street, were found to be different from the City’s records and needs to be replaced.

                     The cost for the additional watermain work is estimated to be $2,370,000 and the Cities of Waukegan and North Chicago will reimburse the County for the actual cost to complete the work per the amended agreements.

                     Upon IDOT’s approval of the additional work in the federal contract the amended municipal agreements will be approved by the Cities and the County.

                     The Cities have requested an extended repayment plan that will be detailed in the amended agreements.

                     This improvement is currently under construction and designated as Section 99-00260-01-WR.
