Construction Updates

IDOT Construction on Irving Park Road Bridge Over Salt Creek (Beginning September 4, 2018)

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that bridge work on Illinois 19 (Irving Park Road) over Salt Creek in Wood Dale will require lane closures beginning, weather permitting, Tuesday, September 4. The project consists of a deck overlay and joint repairs to the existing structure.

In order to complete the work, lane closures will be necessary. From September 4 to early October, traffic in both directions will share the westbound lanes of Irving Park Road. From early October to the completion of the project at the end of November, traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes. Motorists should account for extra travel time through the area. Please pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, and obey all posted speed limits.  

New Signs at Train Station


New signs at the Wood Dale train station were recently installed that match the City's existing gateway signage. These signs serve as an extension of the new Wood Dale branding, and welcome visitors and commuters to the City. 

Clock Tower
A new clock tower is being installed at the northwest corner of Irving Park and Wood Dale Road. The tower serves as a key element in the downtown beautification plan and will provide a new focal point within the City, welcoming visitors to the Community. The project will also include hardscape and landscaping improvements and was funded in part by $490,000 in grants provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration. 

Squaw Creek Headwall and Streambank
The Squaw Creek project is a reconstruction of the Headwall where the storm sewer pipes daylight between Miller Lane and Dalewood Ave. This headwall is in need of repairs. The second portion of this project is to repair the streambank of the Squaw Creek and reestablish a useful flow throughout the area.
