Village Road Program - June 2016
The Village Road Program is scheduled to begin the week of June 13th. Work will begin on 144th Street between Pulaski and Cicero Avenues. The next section to be resurfaced is 149th Street between Pulaski and Cicero Avenues.
This particular project is being completed with funds that were the result of a successful grant (STP) that the Village was awarded. The remainder of the 2016 Village Road Program will be done later this summer. We will update the website with that information when it becomes available.
The details of this program involves pavement resurfacing, areas of partial full-depth pavement removal and replacement, roadway base repairs; curb replacement, removal of asphalt ramps and mountable curbs across driveway entrances, partial driveway apron replacement to meet the grade of new curb lines, and sidewalk replacement.
For the area residents affected by the construction, notices were distributed to each resident and include the following information:
No Parking – Police Order will be posted by the contractor before work begins for that side of the street. During work on the roadway pavement surfaces, no on-street parking will be allowed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please park on neighboring side streets or in your driveway. The contractor will post no parking signs and hand-deliver a notice to your home at least 24 hours before roadway pavement surface work begins on your block. Working hours for the contractor are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday - Saturday.
Streets with fire lanes will be maintained as Fire Lanes. When necessary, the fire lane will be temporarily shifted to the other side of the street to accommodate the concrete curb repairs. Please be mindful of the posted fire lane signs.
The construction contractor’s schedule may change according to the weather. Please be aware that completion of the job is weather permitting. The Public Works Department is working with the contractors and residents to minimize disruptions to the community. Residents living on the streets in the area of scheduled work are advised to call Public Works at 708-389-9658 if you have questions regarding the Village Road Program.
