Starting today, Sept. 26, construction will begin on a half-mile stretch of Harrison Street, between Harlem and Desplaines avenues, as part of a roughly $500,000 resurfacing project the village has undertaken with financial assistance from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).
According to a press release sent from the village, construction will start with crews working to readjust street-level sewer caps, which will have little impact on the street. After this, spot curb repairs will be undertaken, which could affect parking in certain areas, the document explains. Then, crews will begin grinding the streets, which “will be the most noticeable part of the project.”
All parking will be prohibited, but the village will work to mitigate the effect on traffic, the press release says. Resurfacing will then complete the project, which “will see a continuation of parking restrictions, as well as increased travel times for motorists.” 
The $561,600 project – $449,280 is federal money channeled through IDOT, and the village is chipping in $112,000, according to an application it submitted to IDOT – was approved as a resolution at the village’s June 13 meeting.
Mayor Anthony Calderone said in a press release that he expects the project to be done “sooner rather than later.” The Mayor’s Press Office did not return calls seeking a more definitive time frame.
