Work is underway on the Chicago Avenue Rehabilitation Project. Work will be done in multiple stages. Stage 1 will be shifting northbound and southbound traffic onto the southbound pavement, removal of northbound pavement, installation of sewer and water, and new pavement.  Hawthorne Avenue east bound will be open during Stage 1. The second stage will be shifting northbound and southbound traffic onto the new northbound pavement, completion of utilities and new pavement.

Truck Traffic will be detoured during construction due to limited lane width. No Parking signs will be posted on Chicago from Cherry Street to Rawson Avenue. Traffic will likely increase on Hawthorne Avenue, Mill Road and other streets in the vicinity during construction.
