The Engineering Department supports the Utilities Department with the design of public improvements (roadways, water system, drainage, sewer, and lighting) within the Village. The engineers also review development plans and building permit applications as they pertain to site drainage, floodplain, and the construction of public infrastructure.
Closure of Gage Avenue at Ruby Street Starts September 8
In order to address a potential safety hazard at the at-grade railroad crossing on Ruby between Franklin and Pacific, the Village has obtained a State grant and appropriate authorizations for improvements to the intersections. In order to alleviate the project’s cost impact on the Village and its taxpayers, the Village is closing Gage at Ruby on September 8 and installing a four-way stop sign at Ruby and Pacific to replace the existing traffic signals. This change will improve the safety of vehicles in the railroad crossing and the efficiency of traffic movement at Ruby and Pacific. The street closure on Gage requires placing a physical barrier where the street meets Ruby.
For more information on the street closure, refer to the Village's Letter of Notification to residents in the area.
