Haweswood Drive Construction

Construction crews have been hard at work, replacing the creek culvert on Haweswood Drive. Constructed some 60 years ago, the original metal culverts were severely rusted and partly caved in and could eventually result in the roadway collapsing if not replaced.

Complicating and delaying the project further, was the discovery of unmapped utility cables, and both AT&T and ComED had to be called to perform an inspection. The cables were found to no longer be in use, and the crew was able to safely cut them before continuing.

Construction is now completed and the road is open again.

The new culverts should last for about a century.

Automated External Defibrillator

A new Automated External Defibrillator, or AED, has been installed at the Village front office, according to Crete Fire Department Chief Waterman. The AED is a portable electronic device that diagnoses life-threatening cardiac related conditions and can treat them through defibrillation. Chief Waterman also extended a special thanks to Crete Fire Department Captain Jim Boehner for his work on this project.
