Now that the Better Lake Street project is concluding, I just want to say that in my opinion they did an outstanding job. They managed to finish the construction project, during a pandemic, and dealt with all the other “surprises” that no doubt occur when excavating infrastructure many decades old.
Even better, I thought their regular and sometimes witty communication about the project over these months has been something that others involved in similar projects could learn from. I felt like we citizens were kept really well informed about where the project was focused week by week, and that made us “regular folks” feel like we were kind of participants in the project, too. Kudos to all involved, and thank you for being so professional and considerate; you did Oak Park proud.
