    Winnetka Streetscape Improvements

    Ciorba Group was selected by the Village of Winnetka to prepare the design plans, specifications and cost estimates for streetscape improvements in the East Elm Street, West Elm Street and Hubbard Woods Business Districts. The purpose of the project was to replace the existing, outdated landscaping features in these downtown districts with a new streetscape based upon the Village’s approved Streetscape Master Plan and Implementation Strategy.

    The project included new curb and gutter, sidewalk, planters, an irrigation system, bump outs at crosswalks, and roadway and pedestrian lighting. Coordination, plan approval and permits were required from IDOT as a portion of the improvement will be constructed on a State highway. The plans included extensive maintenance of vehicular and pedestrian traffic details and notes to maintain access to stores and shops at all times. Notes were also added to limit the duration that on-street parking can be temporarily restricted due to construction operations.

    A new decorative street lighting system was designed to maintain the downtown’s quaint feeling. An extensive receptacle system was designed to services festivals and holiday lighting installations. Ciorba worked closely with the Village to locate lighting controllers in discrete locations, out of sight of visitors.

    A landscape architectural firm assisted in selecting the planting and developing the streetscape elements. The design of this project was completed on an accelerated schedule to meet the Village’s anticipated construction schedule.
