Parkside Drainage Improvements
The Village of Tinley Park recently awarded a $705,366 contract to H. Linden & Sons of Plano, Ill. to upgrade the existing storm sewer along Glenview Drive, Ravinia Drive and Pine Point Drive between Elm Lane and Riverside Drive with a new 12- to 36-inch storm sewer under the pavement and in the parkway. This improvement is expected to improve drainage in that neighborhood during heavy rainfall by increasing the amount of rainfall the system can convey. Click here

LaGrange Road Widening Project
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is in the fourth and final stage of a multiyear road widening project along LaGrange Road from 131st to 179th streets that began in June 2013. Although Tinley Park's portion of the project has been completed, the following information is being made available for residents who use the portions of LaGrange Road that fall outside Village limits.
Roadwork on LaGrange Road from 143rd to 159th streets will result in a new traffic pattern beginning Aug. 9, weather permitting. While northbound traffic will remain unchanged, southbound traffic will be placed in the two outside lanes of the southbound permanent pavement. The only movement out of commercial driveways northbound and southbound will be right-turn-only. Median access will be eliminated, except at the signalized intersections at 152nd Street (Orland Park Place), 154th Place and northbound at the Department of Defense. The signalized intersections will be put into lead lag (alternating left turns for northbound and southbound LaGrange Road traffic), as was the case during Stage 2.
On the day of the stage change, drivers should anticipate lane closures northbound and southbound throughout the contract limits to remove old striping, install new markings, move traffic signals and place signs and additional traffic control equipment. Drivers should also anticipate daily lane closures the rest of that week as the contractor prepares for construction of the permanent median.
Further details will become available for the Stage 4 dates that concern roadwork from 131st to 143rd streets. The LaGrange Road widening project is expected to be completed soon.
