The Avenue Business Association offers thanks to the Village of Oak Park for its support and efficiency during the just completed repaving of Oak Park Avenue.
Any road construction project causes shivers among small businesses reliant on easily available parking and access. Knowing that our main thoroughfare was going to be under construction this spring worried Avenue members.
However, village officials, especially Loretta Daly, the business services liaison, went out of their way to schedule this work to avoid major retail holidays such as Easter and Mother's Day.
Once the work started, contractors were very aware of the special needs of our businesses.
Now the work is about finished. We have a smooth street, reset paving bricks along the street, new stop lights and added left turn lanes. And, of course, we're open for business.
