The Park Forest Public Works Department would like to notify you of scheduled construction work on several streets throughout the Community that will begin within two weeks, though not all locations will begin at the same time. Due to the frequency of water main breaks, the entire water main will be replaced; along with drainage improvements; curb and driveway apron replacements (as required); and road resurfacing on the following streets:
- Washington and Washington Court (Wilshire to Westgate)
- Monee and Monee Court (Orchard to Blackhawk)
This project will take place during working hours, Monday-Saturday, 7am-6pm and is expected to last approximately 6 months. Residences should expect common construction inconveniences such as traffic congestion, dust, noise, heavy equipment, temporary restricted access to driveways, and water service disruptions. There will also be on street parking restrictions posted during construction.
