Bourbonnais Interceptor Project
*UPDATE - JUNE 23*
Latham Drive, north of Periwinkle Turn to south of Oak Run Drive, will be closed beginning Monday, June 26, 2017 as work progresses on the Village of Bourbonnais interceptor project.
The progress of the excavation will be monitored to determine if total closure will need to remain in effect or whether traffic can be accommodated after hours. Updates will be made on the progress of the excavation.
Only residents that live along the closure will be allowed access. No through traffic will be allowed.
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."

Prescription Drop Box
The Bourbonnais Police Department would like to remind our residents of the prescription drop box that is in the lobby of the Bourbonnais Police Station, located at 700 Main Street NW. Lobby hours are 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM, Monday – Friday. The drop-off provides a secure location for people to deposit unused prescription medication, and is part of a larger effort by the Indiana Attorney General’s office to combat the misuse of prescription drugs.
“Our goal is to keep Bourbonnais residents safe from danger,” says Chief of Police Jim Phelps. “Sometimes dangerous situations don’t arise from robberies or shootings. Sometimes that danger can come from everyday sources, such as the misuse or abuse of prescription medication.”
According to the attorney general’s office, every 25 minutes someone dies from a prescription drug overdose, and 1 in 20 people have used prescription pain killers for non-medical reasons in the United States. Unused medication and the general misuse of medication beyond its original purpose invites crime. By setting a good example of proper use and disposal, we keep our children and communities safe.
