Thatcher Avenue closure begins Wednesday

The following release comes from the Village of Elmwood Park  facebook page.

On behalf of the Village of Elmwood Park, I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of some changes that will be taking place with regards to the maintenance of traffic on Thatcher Avenue. Over the past couple weeks the Village has observed an increase in southbound traffic flow through the work zone along Thatcher Avenue. This traffic has created an adverse effect on the construction progress as well as the safety of the traveling public and construction workers. 

To better ensure the safety of these motorists and construction workers, thru traffic on Thatcher Avenue between Fullerton Avenue and North Avenue will no longer be permitted in either direction.

Local access in the southbound direction will continue to be maintained only for the residents of Country Club Lane and Thatcher Avenue as well as those traveling to and from the Oak Park Country Club and Evans Field.

All other northbound and southbound traffic will be detoured at North Avenue and Fullerton Avenue respectively.

We understand that this and other traffic routes throughout the Village have been affected by the various construction projects and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any question, please contact me at 847-833-0219.
