Project Summary

The purpose of this project is to continue to study traffic and pedestrian issues on a neighborhood-wide basis.

Study Area #3 is bounded by Ogden Ave to the north, Roslyn/Williams to the east, 55th south, and Fairview Avenue to the west.

Data analysis from this study will result in a set of physical and operational recommendations that will improve intersection controls, address pedestrian and access needs, address vehicular speeds, and minimize the potential for present and future crashes and conflicts.

The Village authorized contractor for the project is TADI of Chicago, Illinois. Data collection includes temporary electronic counters, as well as manual counts of pedestrian and vehicles by TADI staffers at intersections and mid-block locations. Roadway measurements, intersection re-configurations and vehicular operations will also be examined.
