Safety is top concern for residents in any plan for 47th Street
LA GRANGE — Safety and preserving the aesthetic nature of La Grange should be paramount in any solution to the problems surrounding the intersection of 47th Street and East Avenue, area residents said recently.
“The primary need for that intersection is safety. Safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists,” La Grange resident Charlie Brown said.
The residents, who formed the 47th Street/East Avenue Community Group on Facebook to share information about possible Illinois Department of Transportation solutions to the intersection, said an overpass would create additional traffic, hamper pedestrian access to two community parks and create a physical division within La Grange.
