Introduction

A key component of the Mount Prospect Strategic Plan established by the Village Board is to improve the Village’s residential street light system.  As a result of strategic plan implementation, a street light project is planned for the Randview Highlands neighborhood. Phase I of the Randview Highlands street light project is complete; this portion of the project was approved by the Village Board on September 4, 2018.

The Randview Highlands neighborhood is located immediately south of Kensington Road and west of Main Street (IL Route 83).  The neighborhood (as shown in the map below) currently has ComEd-owned street lights only at intersections providing limited nighttime visibility.  The blocks between Highland Street and Kensington Road are twice as long (1320’) as a typical block further limiting light in the neighborhood.  This street light project will provide improved nighttime visibility and safety in the neighborhood.  Phase II of the project includes street lights along Elmhurst Avenue, Russel Street, Pine Street and Wille Street, between Kensington Road and Highland Street. 

Village Street Light Program

The Village has, over time, has constructed or modified streetlights throughout town. Recent projects include Phase I  of Randview Highlands, Willow and Cypress, and Central Road.  More information on the Village Street Light Program is available in the 2016  Corridor Lighting Evaluation Report and the 2017 Residential Street Lighting Program Review Report (see document list, right). In addition, the PowerPoint presentation for the September 12, 2017 Committee of the Whole discussion of the residential streetlight program can be viewed as well.  The video archive of this meeting can be viewed here.

Randview Highlands location map - phase II final

The Village has hired the Engineering firm of Baxter & Woodman, Inc., to prepare the design plans and specifications for the project.  They started their field work the week of April 16, 2019.  They will be visible on the project blocks, collecting field information for the project plans.  The anticipated project schedule is:

July 2019                         Award construction contract
August 2019                  Begin construction
November 2019          Complete construction 

Once work begins, the contractor will first install the metal foundations as well as the underground conduit and wiring. The contractor will then set the new lights and coordinate with ComEd to energize the lights.  The existing ComEd street lights on wood poles will then be removed by ComEd.  Final restoration of the parkways with sod will take place in the fall. There will no be no interruption to Village services during construction.

Prior to the start of construction, Public Works will send residents of this area another Resident Information Bulletin (RIB) to give  pertinent information about what to expect during construction, with information on how to view project plans.
