ELMHURST – The city of Elmhurst began a project Sept. 17 to resurface York Street between First Street and North Avenue in downtown Elmhurst.
The purpose of the project is to improve safety and traffic operations for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists who use York Street, and the project will take about two months to complete, according to a post on the city's website.
All crosswalks within the project boundaries will be stamped with a brick pattern and colored red with pavement marking, the post stated. The pavement markings will improve safety by making the crosswalks more visible and add to the aesthetics of downtown Elmhurst, according to the post.
The working hours for the road improvements will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, with the exception of pavement milling, level binder and asphalt surface operations, which will be performed overnight from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. to minimize traffic disruptions during the day, the post stated.
Moving lane closures will occur during construction, but at least one travel lane will remain in place during the entire project in all current traffic directions, according to the post.
On-street parking will be impacted temporarily and may be limited throughout the construction on one side of the street at a time, the post stated. Additional parking is available at the four parking decks in the City Centre.
