  • Nicor Gas Main Construction on Oakton Street
    Beginning April 24th, Nicor Gas will begin construction of a new large diameter gas main on Oakton Street from LaCrosse Avenue to Kenton Avenue.

Construction on Oakton Street will be completed September 2023.
    UPDATE as of 5/4/2023 – Starting May 8th, the traffic signals will go through a maintenance transfer. The maintenance transfer is expected to start at 1 PM. Traffic delays are expected during the maintenance transfer.

The work will take place along the existing path on the south side of Old Orchard Road. The project is expected to be completed by the end of July 2023. Expect periodic traffic delays Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sidewalk and Parking Closure North of 8047 Floral Ave
    On Thursday, April 6, 2023, masonry work for the development at 8047 Floral Avenue will commence. As part of the construction, the sidewalk and parking on Brown Street from Floral Ave to the alley east of the building will be closed.

The work is expected to be completed in two to four weeks (weather permitting).
  • MWRD Sludge Line Pipe Replacement
    The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District will be replacing an existing sludge line pipe along Howard Street from St. Louis Avenue to McCormick Boulevard, and along McCormick Boulevard from Howard Street to Touhy Avenue within the Village of Skokie.  The work will primarily take place along existing bike path areas. The North Shore Channel Bike Path on McCormick and the bike path on Howard will remain open during construction. The sludge line pipe will be replaced primarily through directional drilling that will minimize disturbances. The project will be completed December 2023. 

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Engineering Division at (847) 933-8231.
