There will be no closure on the Labor Day Weekend.

The closure will be between Broadway and Winthrop.

Vehicular traffic will be prohibited, but one sidewalk will remain open for pedestrians, alternating sides as work progresses.

Residents north of Foster will need to access the alley via Berwyn.

If you need further information about alternative parking, please contact the contractor, Walsh-Fluor, at 708-253-9772.

Weeknight work will take place on Monday, August 29 to Friday, September 2, and Tuesday, September 6 to Friday. September 9 (unless they finish the project early). The hours of work will be 9pm to 4:30am, with prep work beginning at 8:30pm.
