Disgruntled residents voice concerns about First Street construction plans
LEMONT – Residents packed Village Hall on Sept. 9 to protest the opening of First Street to through traffic during a meeting of the village board of trustees.
The primary concern of those in attendance was how the increased traffic would affect pedestrian safety in a residential area with a narrow road and limited sidewalks.
As part of a $185,813 construction project to widen First Street, the village will pave a portion of the street between Woodglen and Berkley lanes that is currently barricaded.
