For the past several years, the Village of Niles has been working with the Illinois Department of Transportation toward a plan to improve the condition and appearance of various state roadways in town. The next improvement to take place in Niles is the resurfacing of Milwaukee Avenue from Glenview Road in Glenview on the north, to Harts Road on the south and will begin on Monday, April 20th. This project is being fully funded by the State of Illinois, and reflects a substantial investment in our local infrastructure.
While Milwaukee Avenue will remain open during the project, lane restrictions during various phases of construction will impact traffic flow. The Village recognizes the inconvenience that any road construction may cause and apologizes for any difficulties encountered. Work will take place from approximately 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. weekdays. As of this time no weekend work is scheduled occur.
If you have a lawn sprinkler system in the parkway, please mark it with a flag. The contractor completing the project is not responsible for damaging sprinkler systems in the parkway, but they will make every effort to avoid them if they are marked. Should you have any questions about this project, you may contact the Niles Engineering Department at (847) 588-7920 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
