Madison Street traffic will be a little funky in Oak Park this month, as drivers may have already noticed. Sewer work associated with the construction of the new Pete’s Market grocery store prompted a change in the traffic pattern on Madison Street between Oak Park Avenue and Wesley Avenue, according to the Village of Oak Park.
Traffic has shifted to the far south portion of the roadway, with crews maintaining one lane of traffic in each direction. Traffic control set up the changes Dec. 12 and work began the next day. The sewer work is expected to last about one month.
Parking has been prohibited on Madison Street within the construction zone. The village has posted signage to inform drivers and businesses in the area have been notified.
