2020 Clausen Avenue - West Lane is Now Open for Public use

The west lane of Clausen Avenue will be available for public use today. At this time, Clausen Avenue will also revert back to a two-way street. Please be advised that the following work still needs to be completed in 2020:

  • Restoration of Parkways (grading, topsoil and sod)
  • Sidewalk Installation
    • Hillgrove and Clausen (west side) - Removal and replacement of the sidewalk crossing ramps. 
    • Clausen and 42nd (west side) - The work here is substantial as the new sidewalk must be American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. The existing stairs will be removed and replaced with compliant sidewalk. The work will require the installation of a retaining wall to limit the impact on private property. 
  • Contract Punch-list items
    • Driveway aprons - Multiple driveway aprons require repair or replacement.
    • Pavement repairs - Any cracked pavement may be removed and replaced.

The contractor will be on-site over the next few weeks to complete these items. Please expect temporary road closures during these times. On-street parking will remain available until these items are completed. Please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at with any questions or concerns.
