    Project Description With the passing of the Federal 2010 ADA Standards for Accessibility and Design, the District approved funding for the first phase of an extensive ADA evaluation of our facilities in September 2011 and completed the District’s full ADA evaluations by 2012.

    Since completion of the evaluation, funding has been budgeted annually to complete the accessibility projects as prioritized.

    In 2015, a multi-year plan was implemented to complete the ADA requirements in all of the District’s picnic areas including making all drinking fountains, hydrants, grills and picnic shelters accessible. This fiscal year the following projects will be completed:

    South North Fabyan West Forest Preserve Burnidge Forest Preserve Flush Restroom Shelter – Burnidge Shelter #1 Paul Wolff Campground Shelter #2 Replace fountain Shelter – Campground Fabyan East Forest Preserve Equestrian Shelter Shelter #3 Flush Restroom fountain replacement Shelter #4 Johnson’s Mound Forest Preserve Hampshire Forest Preserve Shelter #1 Shelter #1 relocate hydrant Shelter #2 Shelter #2 accessible pad and replace hydrant Shelter #3 Tyler Creek Forest Preserve Grunwald Farms Forest Preserve Shelter #1 Flush Restroom Flush Restroom Shop fountains Shelter #2 Big Rock Campground Freeman Kame Flush Restroom Tomo Chi-Chi Lodge Lodge fountain Muirhead Springs Shop fountain

    Burnidge Forest Preserve and Paul Wolff Campground Repaving Project Fiscal Year: 2016-2017

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $299,000 Other: $ 0 Total Budget: $299,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 0 Construction $299,000

    Project Description

    Burnidge and Paul Wolff are two of the North Operations busier preserves. Both of these preserves are very popular for equestrian use, bird viewing, cross country running, skiing, jogging, hiking, and walking. Additionally, Paul Wolff is one of two locations where primitive and RV camping are offered by the District.

    The following are the sections of roadway and parking to be resurfaced:

    Section 1: Paul Wolff Forest Preserve/Campground; main entrance road, parking lot, and the RV dump station. Estimated cost for this section is $110,000.

    Section 2: Burnidge Forest Preserve; center parking lot and a reconfiguration of the intersection connecting the parking lot to the main entry road. Due to the visibility concerns with the current road alignment, the intersection will be reconfigured to have the parking lot entry road T into the main drive. This will allow for easier and safer navigation. Estimated cost for this section is $123,500.

    Section 3: Burnidge Forest Preserve; main entry drive (from Combs Rd.) small sections patching. Resurfacing of two (2) small sections of the roadway that have failed as well as the installation of a culvert with asphalt repair to improve drainage in a small section close to the wetland/pond. The remainder of the roadway is in good shape and these repairs should extend the useful life of the road 3-5 more years. Estimated cost for this section is $26,500.

    For all the sections, the old asphalt will be recycled; and the grindings left in place as new base material, the material compacted and graded, and then new paving added with 2-1/4” of binder course asphalt and 1-1/2” of surface course asphalt. All parking spaces will be painted, including handicap stalls and loading/unloading zones. The base project is estimated at $260,000. An additional 15% allowance ($39,000) was added to address any unsuitable soils that are found or other unforeseen circumstances. The final estimate totals $299,000.

    Carpentersville Dam Removal Engineering IDNR Grant* Fiscal Year: 2015 – 2016

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $ 0 Other: IDNR $ 500,000 Total Budget: $ 500,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $500,000 Construction: $ 0

    Project Description The Carpentersville Dam has a long history in Kane County. Originally constructed to divert water to provide power for the growing industrial businesses along the Fox River, the dam has been a focal point along the river and now serves as a destination for fishing, picnicking, canoeing, and just enjoying the riverside atmosphere. The businesses are now gone and research shows that the removal of the dam will improve the river corridor by providing better habitat for the plants and animals that live around the dam. The District has received funding in the amount of $500,000 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to perform the engineering.

    In the agreement, ratified by the Forest Preserve Commission on Jan. 13, 2015; the IDNR agreed to provide $2.4 million to remove the Carpentersville dam. The funding will cover costs for engineering and removal of the structure as well as shoreline restoration.

    The District set the standard many years ago in dam removal when we took out the South Batavia Dam. Fisheries biologists have demonstrated through their sampling that removing dams is the most positive thing we can do to improve the rivers for fish. Holistic restoration is still in process, but even removing the dams one at a time works to restore the structure and function of the entire Fox River corridor.

    Dick Young Forest Preserve Giant Reed Control Fiscal Year: 2016-2017

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $40,000 Other: $ 0 Total Budget: $40,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 0 Construction $40,000

    Project Description The Nelson Lake Marsh complex, located in the Dick Young Forest Preserve, contains a diverse mixture of ecosystems. There are sections of sedge meadow, cattail marsh and open water. The entire complex measures roughly 230 acres, approximately 150 acres of which is designated as State Nature Preserve. This distinction flows from the incredibly diverse floral assembly present, as well as the importance of the marsh as a stopover for migratory bird populations. Additionally, populations of at least eight Plants of Concern are located in the marsh including flatleaf bladderwort, sageleaf willow and poison sumac.

    Many of these populations are currently threatened by the presence of giant reed (Phragmites australis). Giant reed is a large perennial grass that is native to Europe. Once introduced, this plant will often form very dense stands that prevents the growth of other plants and can eventually dominate an area entirely. As there are numerous stands of giant reed already present in Nelson Lake Marsh, it is imperative that action is taken now to limit the spread and reduce the current population size.

    Control of giant reed is often very difficult. Access can be an issue with the plant often growing in standing water. The plant can spread through the germination of seed and the spreading of horizontal runners that root into the ground at several locations. It is for these reasons that herbicide application is often the most efficient control method.

    The current population of giant reed in Nelson Lake Marsh must be controlled. This will be accomplished through the hiring of a contractor to apply herbicide. This will increase the ability of the native species to compete and reduce the threat of giant reed invasion.

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $510,000 Other: $ 0 Total Budget: $510,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $150,000 Contractor: $360,000

    Project Description Fabyan Forest Preserve is without question our most heavily used preserve. The 198 acre preserve hosts many events each year and thousands more walk, jog and ride the trails, as well as visit the historic Villa Museum, and picturesque gardens. In 2012, a section of the concrete bridge that crosses over to the island failed. Staff closed the bridge to public use while completing an evaluation of the bridge. It was determined that the bridge was in such poor condition that the section that failed could not be repaired without replacing the entire bridge. Because of its condition, the District closed the bridge and hired an engineer to develop a plan for its removal while Staff prepared a plan for future improvements to the preserve. Additionally, the causeway culverts are failing preventing water flow on the west side of the island, the condition of the light house and the bridge abutments on the bridge connecting the island to the east side of Fabyan are deteriorating.

    The existing bridge abutment on the east shore of the east Fabyan Fox River bridge has been undermined over the years by the river. The abutment has cracked and the concrete has fallen away from under one of the base plates of the bridge. The existing wing walls are also cracked on both sides and are separating from the main abutment and the river has scoured around the back side of the north side wing wall. Due to the existing conditions of the bridge, it is unsafe for vehicle traffic. Repairs are required before further damage is incurred.

    Recognizing the importance of the Fabyan Forest Preserve and its historical and cultural significances, Staff is currently working on a plan for improving and preserving these site characteristics. Funding remaining in the Fox River Trust Fund in the amount of $495,000 will be dedicated to this project. Approximately $225,000 was expensed in 2013/14 for engineering, bid documents and permitting, as well as the removal of the failed concrete bridge and abutment repair of the east bridge. The remaining funding of approximately $270,000 will be used for future construction phases and as matching funding for future grant applications to preserve a bridge connection, shoreline stabilization and lighthouse restoration.

    Fabyan Forest Preserve Causeway Removal Engineering IDNR Grant* Fiscal Year: 2015 – 2016 Funding

    Forest Preserve District: $ 0 Other: IDNR Grant $700,000 Total Budget: $700,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 100,000 Construction: $ 600,000

    Project Description Fabyan Forest Preserve is without question our most heavily used preserve. The 198 acre preserve hosts many events each year and thousands more walk, jog and ride the trails, as well as visit the historic Villa Museum, and picturesque gardens. In 2012, a section of the concrete bridge that crosses over to the island failed. Staff closed the bridge to public use while completing an evaluation of the bridge. It was determined that the bridge was in such poor condition that the section that failed could not be repaired without replacing the entire bridge. Because of its condition, the District closed the bridge and hired an engineer to develop a plan for its removal while Staff prepared a plan for future improvements to the preserve. Additionally, the causeway culverts are failing preventing water flow on the west side of the island, the condition of the light house and the bridge abutments on the bridge connecting the island to the east side of Fabyan are deteriorating.

    The removal of the causeway is being coordinated in conjunction with the Fabyan Forest Preserve bridges and island improvement project in that the causeway will be removed following the installation of the new pedestrian bridge.

    In the agreement, ratified by the Forest Preserve Commission on Jan. 13, 2015; the IDNR agreed to provide $1 million to remove the causeway at the Fabyan Forest Preserve. The funding will cover costs for engineering and removal of the two structures as well as shoreline restoration. The IDNR has provided $500,000 of the funding for the engineering. Once a final construction design and estimated cost is approved by the IDNR, they will provide the remaining funding to bid the project.

    The dams are major barriers for fish and other aquatic animals. By removing the structure, animals could more freely move throughout the river corridor. This would greatly improve water quality and fish habitat.

    The District set the standard many years ago in dam removal when we took out the South Batavia Dam. Fisheries biologists have demonstrated through their sampling that removing dams is the most positive thing we can do to improve the rivers for fish. Holistic restoration is still in process, but even removing the dams one at a time works to restore the structure and function of the entire Fox River corridor. Contacts:

    Sep 16 Staff is working with the engineer on separating the engineered drawings for the causeway, from the bridge for the IDNR, because the IDNR is funding the causeway it will work better to separate them.

    Oct 16

    The estimate for the installation of the bridge over the Fox River is higher than what is available in the budget, so staff is looking for additional funding for this phase of the project. The bridge needs to be install before or at the same time as the causeway removal so the causeway removal is delayed at this time. Staff is also still working with the IDNR office of water resources on the propose changes.

    Fox River Trail - Raymond Street Re-Route* Fiscal Year: 2015-2016

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $1,358,000 Other: CMAP-TAP Grant $1,774,896 Total Budget: $3,132,896

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 237,906 Construction: $2,894,990

    Project Description

    In the fall of 2008, flood waters eroded and washed out the footings for the Fox River Trail Bridge near Raymond Street in South Elgin. In March of 2014, the Planning and Utilization Committee reviewed the status of repairs to the current bridge that connects the Fox River Trail to the Elgin branch of the Illinois Prairie Path at the Raymond Street Forest Preserve. Additional damage to the bridge and its abutments was sustained, the Committee approved staff’s recommendations to remove the bridge and continue to research an alternative route for the bike trail connections. Staff presented plans that proposed three different routes to reconnect the trail.

    The proposed concepts contemplated 1) routing the trail through the Fox River Water Reclamation District (FRWRD) property over the current at grade crossing and building a new bridge over Poplar Creek west of the current bridge, 2) rebuilding Raymond Street and Riverview Drive to accommodate a bike lane and route to a point where an at grade crossing could be constructed or 3) constructing a tunnel approximatel 200 feet south of the existing bridge. All three options were viable options, but preliminary conversations with the railroad ruled out the at grade crossings at FRWRD and on Riverview Drive so staff moved forward to prepare a request for proposal for engineering services to construct a tunnel under the railroad to reconnect the Fox River Trail to the Elgin branch of the Illinois Prairie Path.

    In 2014, Wills Burke Kelsey Associates (WBK) of St. Charles, IL was contracted to complete the phase I engineering for the project which includes working with the District on applying for grants to fund the construction of the project in January of 2016.

    WBK’s contract was extended to complete the phase II engineering which will include permits, construction drawings, and project observation.

    The contract for phase I engineering was approved for $106,559.12, based on a $1.3-million-dollar project. During the IDOT reviews and preliminary engineering, the scope of the project changed requiring additional engineering studies.

    The District was notified in October of 2015 that it had been awarded a Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant through the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP). This federal grant will reimburse 80% of the cost of the project estimated at $2.3 million dollars including the Phase II engineering estimated at $180,000.

    Due to poor soils to a depth of 40’, the footings and shoreline stabilization materials will be driven-steel piles with an engineered bracket welded to it to hold the bridge. The bid was sent out to 15 vendors with 4 vendors responding. The qualified lowest bidder was Herlihy Mid-Continent of Romeoville, IL with a bid price of $98,858.26 to repair the Fox River Trail bridge. Initial budget funds were anticipating conventional concrete footings. Due to unstable soils, conventional footings were not feasible and the Army Corps approved the modification to specify steel piles to be driven as bridge support and bank stabilization. The steel piles require no excavation or coffer dams to divert water flow, therefore the construction costs is substantially less expensive.

    Apr 13 Waiting for railroad permit and material delivery.

    Jun 13

    The project was awarded to Herlihy Mid-Continent in March, 2013. Herlihy was unable to find the steel specified in the bid documents prepared by Terracon Engineers. Additionally, the District contacted steel manufacturers and was also unable to locate the specified steel. Herlihy was able to obtain six sections of the steel but at a length 5’ longer than specified. Terracon Engineers has approved the use of the additional length steel in the abutment design of the bridge repair. For those six sections of steel, Herlihy is requesting an increase to cover the additional length of the material. For the remaining sheets required for the repair of the wing wall, an alternative, thinner steel has been approved by Terracon Engineers. Herlihy is providing a credit for the reduced cost of the thinner steel. Therefore, with the credits subtracted from the increase, the cost of the change order totals $1,003.32 for the modified steel. Waiting for railroad permit to begin construction.

    Aug 13

    There were some additional issues from the storm event that followed the bid award. Additional damage was identified when the contractor was dismantling portions of the bridge; the ledge that was supporting the bridge was sheared off completely. Revised plans were developed from the Engineer; the Army Corps of Engineers has issued a permit for the revised plans. There is approximately $100,000 still remaining in the budget as contingency for this item.

    Sep 13 Revised plans have been submitted to the railroad for review/approval. A bid is being prepared for the additional work to be released once approval is received from the railroad. Oct 13 Railroad denied proposed plans

    Freeman Kame Forest Preserve Prairie Reconstruction Fiscal Year: 2016-2017

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $20,000 Other: $ 0 Total Budget: $20,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 0 Construction $20,000

    Project Description Freeman Kame Forest Preserve encompasses 1,335 acres and is located along Freeman Road, in Rutland Township. The most notable features of the preserve are the rolling terrain and diverse wetland and upland habitats created by glacial activity. A 35-acre portion of the preserve including a gravel kame has been a dedicated Illinois State Nature Preserve since 1994. In 2015, 101 acres of additional nature preserve and buffer were dedicated at the site, giving further protection to prairie, savannah, marsh and sedge meadow habitats.

    The marsh and sedge meadow habitats are home to a variety of species including a population of state endangered reptiles. An approximately 18-acre farm field was removed from agricultural production in 2011 for the following reasons: its proximity to the wetland complex, the fields suitability for turtle nesting and the fact that a nesting female of an endangered species of turtle was crushed by farm equipment.

    The field has been fallow for several years and dominated by species of weeds. This project will establish prairie habitat in this formerly farmed area with the goal of creating quality turtle nesting habitat in close proximity to the wetland habitats. The project would also benefit grassland birds. Funds will be used to have the field disked and harrowed, herbicide treatment of the weeds that emerge, and to purchase native seed for the project area.

    Freeman Kame Forest Preserve RTP Grant* Fiscal Year: 2015 – 2016

    Funding Forest Preserve District: $ 80,000 Other: RTP Grant $200,000 Total Budget: $280,000

    Budget Breakdown Engineering: $ 70,000 Construction: $210,000

    Project Description Freeman Kame-Meagher Preserve has some of Kane County's most picturesque topography - situated on the northern flank of the kettle-moraine complex north of Gilberts. There are wet kettle pockets defined by the wooded kames and numerous hills and drumlins that create a panorama of habitats ranging from the spectacular to the cozy secluded nooks. The Preserve (1,264 acres) is also home to Camp Tomo Chi-Chi Youth Camp and Lodge, as well as, a State Dedicated Nature Preserve on the north side of Freeman Road.

    Given the attractive setting and high horse traffic in the area, Freeman is a natural for equestrian trail development. Based on both 2006 and 2013 public input the District seeks assistance to 1) open new areas for riding; 2) build connecting trails to link the camp area and 3.5 miles of existing hiking trails; and 3) address potential user conflict with way-finding and interpretive signs.

    The project begins along Tower Hill Road where a proposed new entrance and equestrian trailer parking area offers first time access to the southern preserve. Features are a 15 car/trailer parking, well and drinking fountain, interpretive and way-finding signs, shelter and restroom – including solar panels. A 10’ wide screened trail will loop through the southern preserve area for 0.66 miles and then 6’ wide mown trail (1.12 miles) will meander north through the hills, woods and open areas to join an existing 3.5 trails leading to and around the camp area. No riding is permitted north of Freeman Road – where the INAI site is located. The trail skirts the ponds and avoids the wetlands on site. The District proposes solar panels at the restrooms which will not only generate power to the facility, but will also feed back into the power grid – resulting in a negative power usage. The project is ready to begin immediately upon IDNR approval. Development is planned for a 6-month construction period. The project incorporates input from public for trails, connections and water at the site.

    The District was awarded an IDNR RTP grant which totals $280,000. The grant will reimburse the District $200,000 upon completion.
