2018 Roadway Program - Project Update 10/11/18

Johnson Avenue (East Lane)

  • Johnson Avenue (47th-46th) is continuing to cure. The curing process requires 7-10 days from the day the concrete is poured before vehicles can travel on the new pavement without damaging it. A new update will be posted once it has been reopened and driveways are accessible.
  • Crews will return tomorrow, weather permitting, to pour driveway aprons on Johnson Avenue (46th-45th). They will follow with pouring pavement tomorrow and Monday. 
  • A second crew will be on Johnson Avenue (45th - Burlington) to remove the east lane pavement and driveway aprons. Please have any vehicles out of your driveway by 7:00AM tomorrow if you reside on the east side. Feel free to utilize your driveway during the weekend on if the contractor does not make it to your driveway by the end of the work day tomorrow. 

Johnson Avenue (West Lane)

The contractor may be removing pavement on the west lane of Johnson (47th-46th) as early as next week. They are attempting to free up an additional excavation crew and remove pavement on both Johnson and Lawn at the same time. An official date will be posted when available but please tentatively plan to be removed from your driveways next week.

Lawn Avenue

The majority of the east lane of Lawn Avenue has been cured and is ready for use. However, there is a portion of concrete that required replacement near the north end of the project along with the east sidewalk. Work on the west lane cannot begin until both of these are completed. The east lane is tentatively scheduled to open early next week. West lane work is scheduled to begin immediately once the east lane is reopened. An additional update will be sent out with the official date once it is available. 

Please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at if you have any questions or concerns.
