111th St. Streetscape $7.9 Million Investment in Mt. Greenwood Corridor

WEEKLY UPDATE: Monday, June 17, 2024 

The upcoming schedule for the two weeks below is for work to be completed along the north side of 111th between Sacramento and Kedzie. 

  • This week the contractor will be installing topsoil in the tree pits and preparing them for tree install next week, and at the end of the week they will be milling the roadway and installing the first layer of asphalt from Kedzie to Sacramento. 
  • Next week the contractor will adjusting the utility structures in the roadway, installing all trees throughout the project area, installing the final layer of asphalt between Kedzie and Sacramento, and then installing the pavement markings throughout the entire project area. 

The 111th Streetscape project began this past June and is approximately 25% complete.  The majority of the construction along the south side of 111th Street between Homan Avenue and Kedzie Avenue is nearing completion and includes new sidewalks, curb and gutter, sewer structures, bus pads, driveways, and alley aprons.  By mid-August it is anticipated that the contractor will shift to the north side of 111th Street between Homan Avenue and Kedzie Avenue.  A similar progression of work will occur along the north side as was done along the south side.  Traffic patterns on 111th Street will remain the same when the construction moves to the north side of the street; however, temporary parking restrictions will be in place on the north side of 111th Street as needed.   Tree planting along the new sidewalk will start this fall and continue next spring.  All of the existing street lights will be removed and replaced with new light poles in 2024.  The project is on schedule to be completed in spring 2024.  We encourage all interested business owners and residents to attend the virtual weekly construction meeting with questions or concerns regarding the project.
