Maycliff Subdivision - Update

Update 12/14/17

During water main installation, a corrugated metal pipe used to convey storm water runoff was exposed
at the intersection of 147th and 88th Avenue. The pipe, while intact, has far exceeded its expected life span. 

Bolder Construction, the remaining underground contractor within the project, has agreed to replace the entire
segment of pipe with new reinforced concrete pipe of the same size.

Bolder Construction will require a half day to complete the pipe replacement. The project will begin the morning
of 12/15/17 and will require the temporary closure of 147th Street at 88th Avenue. Schools and bus services have
been notified.

Update 12/13/17

The first stage of new water main installation in the project area is nearing completion. The next step will require the connections between the new water main and the existing water main.

Temporary interruption of service is necessary to complete the connections affecting 147th Street, Fairway Drive and Poplar Road.

During the time of the water shut down, an interruption of water service
will impact several homes in the area and west of the project limits.

The shut down and interruption of service is scheduled for Thursday, December 14, 2017, weather permitting.

The interruption of service is expected to last for approximately 5 hours, between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Once water service resumes, residents are asked to run the cold water for approximately 2 minutes through each plumbing fixture beginning on the lowest level of your home.

Questions should be directed to Public Works at (708) 403-6350.

Project Update 3/30/16
The Maycliff Subdivision project is located south of 143rd Street and east of 88th Avenue.  The project is designed to provide increased conveyance capacity in the storm sewers and reduce the risk of future flooding of the residential properties.  This project also included substantial improvements to the water distribution system.  Construction began on 6/29/15 and was substantially completed last fall.  Completion of the remaining punch list items is expected to begin soon and is anticipated to be completed by the end of April.  The remaining items include the changing of grates along 144th Street, addition of an inlet along 144th Street and 87th Avenue, and installation of a storm sewer through the side yards from 88th Avenue east of Maycliff Drive. 

Paving of the roads will be done this year through the Village's Neighborhood Road Improvement Program.

Maycliff Stormwater and Watermain  


Project History

The Maycliff subdivision was started during the early 1960’s and continued construction of the infrastructure into the ’70’s.  Detaining storm water was only a concept at the time for the design of the subdivision.  The area streets hold water during major storm events and flooding occurs. 

The Village Board continues its efforts to reduce storm water drainage issues with the proposed storm water improvements to the Maycliff area. 

The proposed storm sewer system was designed by Christopher B. Burke Engineering LTD. (CBBEL) and will convey storm water from the residential area into the Schussler Park pond. Large diameter storm sewer pipe will be constructed north and south beneath 87th Avenue, eastward under 144th Street, south below 88th Avenue and discharge near the existing outlet to the Schussler Park pond. Smaller diameter sewers will be installed in various side and rear yards to help alleviate nuisance flooding. Airy’s, Inc. will be installing the storm water improvements.

The majority of the construction will take place within the village right-of-way, some work to install the necessary storm sewers and inlets will be required on private property at different locations. Once work begins, on street parking will be restricted for brief periods to allow for construction access. NO PARKING signs will be posted where needed. 

Water main improvements are also scheduled for construction this summer. A majority of the water mains within the subdivision will be lined, extending the life of the pipe and having less of an impact than traditional open cut construction.

The Village of Orland Park will be resurfacing or rehabilitating all streets within the subdivision in 2016.
