The Village would like to advise residents that the Indiana Harbor Belt (IHB) Railroad plans to perform maintenance on the Cossitt Avenue railroad crossing. A complete closure of the crossing will be required for this work starting on Monday, June 22, 2015 through Sunday, June 28, 2015. Work will include the removal and replacement of the track and asphalt pavement at the railroad tracks in order to provide a smoother crossing.
Signs will be posted in the area designating the detour route for motorists while the crossing is under construction. The detour route for this crossing closure will use East Avenue, 47th Street and La Grange Road. Should weather delay the project, the closure will occur on a subsequent day.
The Village requests that businesses notify any delivery companies that use this route of the planned closure of Cossitt Avenue at the IHB railroad.
The Village will work with the IHB as much as possible to minimize the inconveniences associated with this project. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at (708) 579-2328.
