Village Announces 2015 Street Improvement Project
In 2014, Franklin Park residents approved a referendum to enact a 1% non-home rule sales tax in Franklin Park. These funds are dedicated solely to the repair and maintenance of Village streets. Construction will begin in July and run through September. Notices will be sent to residents in the affected area soon. Be aware that construction could cause traffic delays in the area.

Belmont Avenue from Mannheim to Ruby - Remove and replace failed asphalt areas, replace sections of failed curb and gutter and replace failed concrete alley aprons.
Calwagner Avenue from Grand to Chestnut - Remove and replace failed asphalt areas, surface recycling, asphalt overlay and replace sections of failed curb and gutter.
