Bourbonnais Interceptor Project


 *UPDATE - October 30th*


Effective Monday, October 30, 2017, due to the Sanitary Sewer Project, Gettysburg Drive will be closed north of Latham Drive at the intersection. This construction will be for a period of approximately three to four weeks.


Updates will be made on the progress of the excavation. We are sorry for the inconvenience during this time. Your patience is greatly appreciated.





Bourbonnais will begin the $10 Million sewer project.  The Village of Bourbonnais will begin construction of the most expensive project in village history, as it prepares for the new Interstate 57 interchange and a 1,200-acre business and industrial park at Bourbonnais Parkway.

The board unanimously accepted a $10.1 million contract with Kankakee Valley Construction Company Inc. to complete the first phase of a six-mile sewer system. Kankakee Valley Construction will complete the first 4 miles, which will run from the Perry Farm area through town to St. George Road.

Construction begins this summer (June) with the project expected to be completed by next year. The second phase of the project, which village officials believe will cost about $1.5 million, will connect to the interceptor at St. George Road and run to Bourbonnais Parkway.

"We are looking at the new interchange being complete by summer of 2018," Mayor Paul Schore said. "We want to things in place and utilities ready to go for future businesses and industries to come in."
