Tudor Court Improvements
The Village of Glencoe’s planned improvements to enhance the long-term viability of downtown Glencoe and realize the Village’s vision of creating a special destination that not only boosts Writers Theater and the businesses around it, but also makes much-needed improvements to the roadway, parking, and lighting in this important part of the Village’s business district.
Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) provided Phase III construction observation/resident engineering services for the downtown Tudor Court corridor improvements which included removal and replacement of the existing curb and gutter, new storm sewers, milling and resurfacing of both roadways, construction of brick paver sidewalks and crosswalks along with the installation of various streetscape items including retaining walls, decorative lighting, and benches.
Due to the highly visible location of the project, extensive public coordination and communication was required. The project was completed in late fall of 2020 – on time and within budget.
Project benefits included:
- Improved pedestrian safety
- Realignment of the roadway curb to create a designated drop off area for cars and buses and a new midblock crossing for pedestrians in front of Writers Theater
- Installation of decorative LED lighting, seating and benches, and landscaping
- Widening of the east end of Tudor Court to accommodate festivals and events
