NICOR Natural Gas Main Upgrades

Construction Alert

In December 2020, NICOR completed upgrades to its natural gas mains on Shermer Road, Meadow Road, and Walters Avenue. Some final work items (hot-mix asphalt paving, pavement paint markings, sod, seeding, permanent sidewalk repairs, etc.) will be completed this spring, starting on Monday, April 26.

  • The work on Shermer Road will be limited to small areas to restore pavement and sidewalks. There will be intermittent closure of sidewalks with pedestrian detours posted.
  • The work on Meadow Road will include the restoration of an open cut trench in the driving lane closest to the Village Green Park. Two-way traffic cannot be maintained during this operation; one-way traffic going southbound will be set up on Meadow Road from Shermer Road to Walters Avenue. The work on Meadow Road is expected to take two weeks.
  • The gas main installation on Walters Avenue has been directionally drilled from multiple locations in the sidewalk on the south side of the road. NICOR contractors will restore damaged sidewalks, roadways, parkways, and driveways. If you have damaged sprinkler systems due to the NICOR work, please locate the damaged area in your yard and contact Jeremy Rempert with NICOR (phone number listed below).

For project specific questions and requests, please contact the NICOR Construction Operations Supervisor, Jeremy Rempert, at 224-242-6543. If the NICOR representative cannot be reached, you can call the Northbrook Department of Public Works at 847-272-4711. Note: Construction activities may take place between 7am and 7pm on weekdays and between 9am and 5pm on Saturdays.
