INTERSECTION CLOSED AT HIGHWAY 165 AND 39TH AVENUE
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has resumed construction on State Highway 165 surrounding County Highway EZ, or 39th Avenue, in the Village. Road closures to accommodate the work are now in effect. The entire intersection of Highway 165 and 39th Avenue is currently closed to traffic, extending both north and south of the intersection on 39th Avenue and east and west of the intersection on Highway 165. The intersection is expected to remain closed through late June or early July.
DETOUR ROUTES ESTABLISHED
State Highway and truck traffic is being detoured north to State Highway 50 between Highways 31 (Green Bay Road) and 32 (Sheridan Road) for east/west access across the area. Local traffic has access to local east/west roads in the Village, including: 116th Street to the south, and 93rd and 85th Streets to the north. Local traffic also has north/south access to Highways ML (Springbrook Road), 31 (Green Bay Road) and 32 (Sheridan Road).
ACCESS TO PROPERTIES IN THE WORK AREA
Access to existing properties within the work area will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. If any access will be restricted, the project contractor will notify property owners 24 hours in advance. Following work at the intersection of 39th Avenue, the DOT will begin construction at the intersection of Springbrook Road and Highway 165. The closure at Springbrook Road and Highway 165 is expected to last through the fall construction season, though work schedules will be weather dependent.
SCOPE OF THE WORK
Work includes the construction of four vehicle lanes, separated by a raised median and complemented by bicycle lanes. Two roundabouts will be installed, the first at 39th Avenue and the second at Springbrook Road. The DOT has started using roundabouts throughout the State to create slower traffic speeds and fewer conflict points to reduce accidents that cause serious injury.
