How Can We Help You?

Oct 28, 2022

The Village would like to advise the public that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad plans to conduct repairs at the Garfield Avenue crossing.  A complete closure of the crossing will be required to complete this work. The crossing asphalt, ties, and rails will be removed and replaced with new materials.  The finished product will provide a strengthened crossing for trains and smoother crossing for vehicles.

A complete closure of the Garfield Avenue crossing will begin 9 AM on Thursday, November 10th 2022 through Monday, November 20th 2022 at 5pm.

Signs will be posted in the area alerting motorists and pedestrians of the crossing closure.  All motorists and pedestrians will be detoured west to the Washington St crossing. Please allow for additional time to account for these detours.  

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.  The Village will work with the BNSF as much as possible to minimize the inconveniences associated with this project. BNSF will work as quickly as possible to complete the work in order to minimize the overall duration of the project. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Department of Public Services at (630)789-7382.
