Johnson Avenue Intersection Closures/Johnson Avenue (46th-45th) Access (Updated 11/16/2018)

Update 11/16/2018

Please refer to the updated Intersection Closure Map. The intersection work has been re-configured due to the ComED utility poles. The poles in questions are scheduled for removal today, but their presence has delayed a the west portion of the intersections. The east portion of the Johnson/46th intersection is scheduled for removal on 11/19/18 and replacement next week. Additionally, the west lane of Johnson (46th-45th) is being poured today and tomorrow, weather permitting. Residents residing on the east side of Johnson (46th to 45th) will only be able to access their block from 45th Street while the west lane cures and the east side of the 46th Street intersection is under construction. 

The intersections of Johnson Avenue and 45th/46th will be closed to east/west traffic beginning November 15, 2018. The intersections are being fully reconstructed in concrete. A reconstruction requires the removal and replacement of the existing pavement and base, with 3-5 days of concrete cure time. The east half of the intersection will be reconstructed first, followed by the west half. Please refer to the Johnson Avenue Intersection Closure Map. North/south traffic on Johnson Avenue will remain available during the intersection closures. Please be cautious when crossing the intersections as north/south traffic will be restricted to one driving lane. 

The dates specified in this update are subject to change due to weather, utility conflicts, or other construction delays. The intersections are estimated to be closed until the end of November. Please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at with any questions or concerns.
