Road Closures in Grand / Mannheim Area

Watch for road closures beginning Tuesday, June 22 in the Grand / Mannheim area. Schiller Blvd. will be closed to traffic from Mannheim to Houston and Houston will be closed from Schiller Blvd. to Crown Road. Detour signs will be posted. Road closures are expected to last for up to four weeks while work is completed in the area. Thank you for your patience.



The Village maintains Roadway and Utility Construction Maps that are periodically updated to provide information about ongoing and planned capital improvement projects.  The interactive maps below allow residents and businesses to navigate to an area of the Village, including the ability to type in an address, to determine what capital improvement projects are happening in your area. By clicking on the highlighted lines and polygons on one of these maps, you can view information about the projects and their current status.

Smaller projects, such as sidewalk or curb removal and replacement, are not displayed on either of the construction maps. If you have questions about a project that is not included on the map or you would like additional information on a particular project, please contact the Engineering Department at (847) 671-8304.

In addition to the Village of Franklin Park projects, other governmental agencies have construction projects in and around Franklin Park. Information on those projects can be found using the links below:

Franklin Avenue Improvement Project Future Construction Detours

Construction has begun for the Franklin Avenue Improvement Project. The project will improve approximately 2.1 miles of the Franklin Avenue corridor, including the reconstruction and widening of the roadway, new storm sewer, new roadway lighting, the modernization of traffic signals, and a shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Improvements to the Franklin Avenue roadway network will be completed in two phases. The first phase will consist of the construction of a new box culvert at Silver Creek and a new retaining wall under I-294. The second phase will be the reconstruction of Franklin Avenue, anticipated to begin fall 2021 with expected completion by fall 2023.

The Village will be temporarily re-directing traffic onto an alternative detour route that will divert traffic away from the project construction area. The detour will last through August 16. Local traffic will be able to access the project area and all driveways will have access. The map above further details the proposed detour to provide safety for motorists and construction workers during the construction phase.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation during this improvement, and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Project Manager, Jimmy Samaniego of Smith LaSalle Consulting Engineers at or 312-447-1134.
