Edgewood Avenue Reconstruction Project

Preliminary Engineering

On February 11, 2019, the Village Board approved an agreement with the civil engineering firm Civiltech Engineering, Inc. to design and develop preliminary plans and cost estimates for improving Edgewood Avenue. This project is a cooperative effort between the Village of La Grange and Cook County.

The scope of engineering services for this project includes data collection and coordination, alternatives assessment, and preparation of plans, specifications and cost estimates for the reconstruction of Edgewood Avenue from 47th Street to 52nd Place.

Alternative Analysis Recommendations

Based on resident and other stakeholder input, a roadway design was recommended that seeks to balance resident input, needed roadway improvements, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and other design aspects.  More detailed information on the evaluation and recommended alternatives can be found in the Village staff’s Executive Memorandum and the Engineering Consultant’s Technical Memorandum.  While funding for construction has yet to be identified, the completion of the plans will put the Village in a better position to seek grant funding for projects that are shovel ready.  Since funding has yet to be identified, the implementation schedule for construction is not yet known.
