[ARCHIVED] Ogden Avenue Bridge Construction Notice

The Village would like to advise residents that IDOT will be starting the second phase of the Ogden Avenue Bridge Repair project on Friday, July 26.  The work includes the replacement of existing expansion joints and other bridge deck repairs.  Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on Ogden Avenue.  The significance of these lane restrictions is that we anticipate substantial traffic congestion along this roadway and surrounding area especially during the early morning and evening commutes.  We recommend that motorists select alternative routes to avoid the anticipated congestion along the roadway. 

The anticipated completion date for the project is October, 2019.  Generally, the contractor will be working between the hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

We recommend that visitors and delivery companies be notified of the impending construction.  Throughout the project the La Grange Police Department will be monitoring local roadways for violators of local traffic laws such as truck traffic on local roadways.  Please drive cautiously through the work zone and be aware of equipment and workers, and as always the use of mobile phones while driving is prohibited.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.  We will work with IDOT and the contractor to minimize the inconveniences associated with this project.  The end result will be an improved roadway and bridge that will provide many years of service.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Public Works at (708)579-2328.
