Central Park and Hickory Grove Rd Reconstruction

W Central Park between Cedar and Hickory Grove Rd has fully re-opened. Watch for periodic lane reductions as utility pole work is done in the coming weeks. You may also see periodic lane reductions in the areas adjacent to the Central Park and Hickory Grove Rd intersection, as temperatures allow, through the winter for prep work on the remaining segments. Work on other phases will resume in the Spring.

Central Park is expected to be closed between Hickory Grove Rd and Mississippi Ave on Wednesday, November 9 for concrete pouring.

Things are moving along on W Central Park between Hickory Grove Rd and Cedar! Utility improvements and work to reconstruct the two eastbound lanes are expected to be complete by mid-week next week. Watch for transitioning traffic control as work flips to the westbound lanes. Reconstruction and utility work is estimated to be finished by mid-to-late November.

Pending weather, W Central Park will be closed between Hickory Grove Rd and Cedar St on Tuesday, October 18, through sometime Wednesday, October 19, to repave the two eastbound lanes in the area. Once re-opened, limited short-term lane reductions are expected into the winter as utility and prep work for spring construction will continue. Use Locust or Lombard and Division or Lincoln for east/west connectivity during the closure.

A multi-phased project to reconstruct the Central Park between Cedar and Lincoln, and Hickory Grove Rd from Pine south through the intersection is set to begin September 19.  This year, work will begin in the eastbound lanes of Central Park between the intersection and Cedar St. One lane of travel will be maintained in each direction on the north side of the road during this phase. Reconstruction will involve multiple utility updates and is estimated to be complete by mid-November. Remaining phases of the project will begin in the spring of 2023.
