Construction crews have begun work resurfacing Chicago Avenue between Harlem Avenue and Austin Boulevard, according to a news release from the village of Oak Park.

Traffic will remain open during the project, which is expected to last at least three months, but motorists can expect disruptions to traffic and temporary loss of on-street parking. 

The project also includes curb and gutter replacements and sidewalk ramp improvements as well as installation of new lighting, decorative sidewalks, crosswalks and street furniture from Harlem to Belleforte avenues.
