With warm weather soon on the horizon, construction work on Oak Park's streets and alleys will be heating up in the coming months.
The most significant projects on this Spring's docket include resurfacing of North Avenue, from Edmer to Austin, and the entire length of Madison Street. Construction is currently wrapping up on the resurfacing of Oak Park Avenue, a project started last year.
In total, the village will be working on 7 miles of street, Village Engineer Jim Budrick told the village board Monday night.
Shortly after wrapping up work on Oak Park Avenue by mid-May, construction crews will "turn the corner" and start on Madison, Budrick said. New landscaping will also be installed along Madison.
Residents who will be impacted by capital improvement projects will be notified by the village before work is slated to begin.
The board is expected to further discuss capital projects at a study session Monday.
