Franklin Park is a premier location for industry including major manufacturers and logistics companies that serve the global marketplace. Our proximity to O’Hare International Airport makes our streets an important part of how this region moves freight. Franklin Avenue is a main route with national, regional and local truck traffic. With the completion of Illinois 390 and the construction of Illinois 490, Franklin Avenue’s importance to the regional network is further enhanced.

Franklin Avenue Improvement Project

The Village has received a $22,960,000 IDOT grant to support the Franklin Park Improvement Project, which includes the design and reconstruction of Franklin Avenue from Mannheim to Runge Roads. This project was the highest scoring project in the Illinois Competitive Freight Grant Program. The project is in cooperation with the Cook County Highway Department, Cook County Economic Development Department, Canadian Pacific Railroad and the West Central Municipal Conference.

Working together with our regional partners and private developers, we will improve the roadway and continue to support a vital, expanding industrial community. The Project will improve infrastructure and will widen and reconstruct the road, allowing us to take full advantage of other roadway improvements. There will be direct access to the O’Hare Industrial Corridor and new entrance and exit ramps that connect to I-490 and then to 1-294.

The Project offers many benefits to our Village. This increased connectivity will better position us for job creation and new investment. Modern traffic signals and improved lighting will increase safety. Bike- pedestrian paths will enhance our quality of life. Congestion relief will save business money and improve our air quality. New storm sewers will reduce flooding even further.

Phase 1 Preliminary Engineering is scheduled to be completed this year. Design work would begin in 2019 and construction would be completed by 2023. Phase 1 of the project was presented to the community at a public meeting on June 7. More meetings are being planned. Watch this site and our Facebook Page for updates.
