The Woodlands Green Infrastructure Program consists of three phases. The project's goals include improving the roads, water mains, and sanitary sewers; managing flooding and stormwater issues in the area; and maintaining the unique character of the Woodlands area.  The stormwater management is accomplished through specialized landscaping, rain gardens, and bio-swales.

Phase 1 (Complete)
Phase 1 addressed areas between East Seventh Street and Woodlands Avenue east of County Line Road.  Construction began in 2012 and was completed in 2013.

Phase 2 (Complete)
Phase 2 addressed areas east of County Line Road between Woodland Avenue and 55th Street.  Construction was begun and completed in 2014.

Phase 3 (Complete)
Phase 3 used the same green stormwater management features and road design as in phase 1 and 2. The construction contract for the project was awarded on March 17, 2016.  Construction began the week of March 22, 2016 and was substantially complete in October 2016.  Phase 3 included:

Street From To
Bittersweet Lane West End East End
Dalewood Lane Sixth Street East End
Princeton Road Woodside Seventh
Sixth Street County Line Princeton
Woodside Ave County Line Columbia

Woodlands Phase 3 area

Please note that streets within the Woodlands Phase 3 will be reconstructed to the neighborhood standard of 21 feet wide from back of curb to back of curb.  This will provide sufficient room for two vehicles to pass one another while retaining the unique environment of the Woodlands.  Streets in Phases 1 and 2 that were built to the 21-foot wide dimension include Seventh Street, Cleveland Road, McKinley Lane, Taft Road, Wilson Lane, and portions of Woodlands Avenue.

Nicor conducted gas main improvements in the Woodlands prior to the Village's project commencing.  Residents who may have questions or concerns about the Nicor improvements are encouraged to contact Wesley Howell at whowell@aglresources.com or 331-228-0376 Monday - Thursday, 7:30 AM - 5 PM.

Project Objectives:
  • Reconstruct pavement
  • Stormwater management design using "green" practices and solutions
  • Improvement of sanitary and storm sewer utilities
  • Tree preservation

The construction contract for each phase includes two years of landscaping maintenance for the rain gardens and bio-swales.

A public meeting showcasing plans for Phase 3 was held on 01/28/16.  Materials from the meeting are available below.

The construction contract was awarded to John Neri Construction Company on March 17, 2016.  Construction notices can be found below:
