Project Summary

The purpose of this project is to continue to study traffic and pedestrian issues on a neighborhood-wide basis. Study Area #4 is bounded by Ogden Ave to the north, Fairview Ave to the east, Warren Ave/Rogers St to the south, and Main St 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, review school operations, and minimize the potential for present and future crashes and conflicts.

The Village authorized contractor for the project is KLOA, Inc. of Rosemont, Illinois. Data collection includes temporary electronic counters as well as manual counts of pedestrian and vehicles by KLOA staffers at intersections and mid-block locations. Roadway measurements, intersection re-configurations and vehicular operations will also be examined. Recommendations will be presented after data analysis, consultations with Village staff, and input from the residents.
