Closure Begin for Work on Tri-State Tollway Project


Shoulder closures and overnight lane reductions scheduled between Rosemont and Franklin Park will begin this week on the Tollway (I-294), with initial construction scheduled between Balmoral Avenue in Rosemont and Wolf Road in Franklin Park. Weather permitting, the outside shoulders in both directions on I-294 between Rosemont and Franklin Park will be closed for repair work scheduled to last through June.

When shoulder work is complete, traffic in both directions is scheduled to shift to the outside lanes and roadway work will begin between Balmoral Avenue and the O’Hare Oasis. The Tollway will maintain four lanes of traffic in both directions by shifting traffic to safely accommodate drivers and provide work zones during construction. Additional lane closures will be scheduled as needed during overnight and off-peak hours for construction. Work to advance the project includes repairing, resurfacing and widening I-294 to five lanes between Balmoral Avenue and Wolf Road in Franklin Park, as well as reconstructing barrier walls, medians and shoulders in this area.

As part of the work in this section, the bridges carrying I-294 over Irving Park Road, Lawrence Avenue and the Canadian National Railroad in Schiller Park will be repaired and portions of the ramps connecting Irving Park Road to I-294 will be reconstructed. Improvements as part of this project also include guardrail, drainage, lighting, signage and landscaping improvements.

Water Survey Regarding Cross Connections and Service Lines


Water Survey Regarding Cross Connections and Service Lines The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requires that all water systems in the State have an effective Cross Connection Control Program. Cross connections within the public water supply are a serious concern, as they can allow contaminants or pollutants to enter the public water system through what is called “backflow”. Backflow occurs when a drop-in water pressure causes your water to flow in the opposite direction. This can allow contaminated or polluted water to flow back into your drinking water. Given the IEPA regulations and the dangers that exist from unprotected cross connections, it is necessary to establish and maintain an effective cross connection control program to protect both the integrity of Franklin Park’s water supply as well as to protect our water customers.

In order to provide the best program possible, the Village of Franklin Park has contracted with Backflow Solutions, Inc. to inspect our water supply. Backflow Solutions, Inc. is a professional service company fully devoted to helping public and private water systems with development, implementation and maintenance of cross connection control program. Also, the Village is required by law to determine what type of service lines exists for all connections in our Village. If you are unsure about how to determine if you have a lead or copper water service line, there is easy to use information below to help you or you can call 847-671-8252.

Please complete the survey recently mailed and return it to the Village. You can also complete it on-line at www.bsiprograms.com/surveys. If you have questions regarding cross connections, call 800-414-4990.

Annual Business Appreciation Luncheon

Each year we take the opportunity to thank Franklin Park businesses for their investment in our community. These businesses employ thousands of workers and make our Village a vital center for industry. We are continuing to see growth in our Village. In 2017, over 1.3 million square feet was developed. Currently we have 2.2 million square feet of new development under construction. CenterPoint Properties, Bridge Development, Ridge Development and Molto Properties are constructing state-of-the art manufacturing and distribution facilities.

Businesses are also growing in Franklin Park. Koch Foods added 250 new jobs upon the completion of their $14 million expansion. Digital Realty is adding another 18 acres to their campus on Grand Avenue. A primary reason for companies expanding and locating in Franklin Park is our proximity to O’ Hare International Airport and the adjacent rail and highway infrastructure. Access and connectivity is a critical factor for 21st century businesses. Our luncheon keynote speaker, Tollway Chairman Bob Schillerstrom, has been an outspoken advocate for transportation improvements that increase access for suburban businesses and build their industrial corridors. At the luncheon, Chairman Schillerstrom outlined the Tollway’s plans for the reconstruction of the Central Tri-State, I 294, that will greatly reduce traffic congestion. He also noted the benefits of the new 390 and the upcoming 490 which will have exit and entrance ramps onto Franklin Avenue.

The Taft Avenue Extension will provide quicker routes to and around O’ Hare and will lessen truck traffic on our local streets. The Village is also investing in the reconstruction of Franklin Avenue which will support new growth along that corridor. Franklin Park businesses are the backbone of our Village and we appreciate their investment in our Village and their confidence in our administration. Thanks to all.

Summer Lawns

Summer brings the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy picnics, local festivals and backyard BBQ’s with friends. Keeping our lawns well maintained supports the attractiveness of our neighborhoods. But did you know it also supports our health? Unkempt, over grown lawns and weeds are breeding grounds for rodents, mosquitoes and ticks which can spread illnesses. The Village has started issuing tickets to homeowners if their grass is over six inches high. If you are disabled or elderly and need assistance complying, please call us at 847-671-4800. Also, if you see properties that need to be maintained, please alert the Village at inspections@vofp.com. Thank you for your cooperation! Have a healthy, safe and FUN summer!
