The Village would like to advise residents that the Indiana Harbor Belt (IHB) Railroad plans to perform maintenance on the Lincoln Avenue railroad crossing. A complete closure of the crossing will be required for this work starting on Monday, October 15, 2018 through Friday, October 26, 2018. 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 the Cossitt Avenue railroad crossing to the south. Should weather delay the project, the closure will occur on a subsequent day / time.
The Village requests that businesses notify any delivery companies that use this route of the work.
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.
