Main Street Improvement Neighborhood Meeting
Thursday, September 21, 2023 | 6:00 pm - 08:00 PM | Map It
The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for members of the public to view project exhibits, discuss the pre-final plans, and provide comments to the project team.
The proposed improvements are in accordance with the Downers Grove High School Safety Study which provided specific recommendations for Main St from Franklin Street to Sherman Road, south of Ogden Avenue.
The project is in the final design stage and the proposed improvements include the following major items:
- Development of left turn lanes to enhance safety by changing the existing roadway cross section from four lanes to three lanes.
- Dedicated bike lanes identified with green pavement markings.
- Installation of pedestrian level light poles.
- Modification of the traffic signal at Franklin Street to install an eastbound left turn arrow.
