IUOE LOCAL 150 STRIKE

These companies own and operate quarries in Northern Illinois that produce gravel, sand, and crushed stone.   These materials are required for construction and are used as backfill and to make concrete and asphalt.  With this time of year being peak construction season and the unknown of how long the strike will last, there has not been any indication of how severe an impact the strike will have on construction projects.

The Village is closely monitoring the situation and working with its contractors to minimize the impact on current projects, particularly the Maple Area Improvement Project currently under construction.  The contractor for the Maple Area Improvement Project is planning to complete as much work as possible until the quarries are out of material.  Then they will complete as much work as possible that doesn’t require stone, concrete, or asphalt.  The Village will keep residents informed on the progress of work and updates on the strike as it relates to the construction of projects.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding of any inconveniences during construction, especially now with the added uncertainty of project completion.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Village of Villa Park Public Works Department at (630)834-8505 or email engineering@invillapark.com
