3 Reasons Why Lake Street Streetscape is Necessary

Posted April 8, 2020

1. IT’S TIME

The last streetscape improvement in Downtown Oak Park was in 1989. Lake Street was last resurfaced in 2001 and the sewer and water mains are 125 years old and need repair.

2. IT WILL BE SAFER

Sidewalks have tripping hazards and are congested from multiple uses. Trees are overgrowing grates. Crosswalks and traffic signals are out of date.

3. IT WILL BE A BETTER LAKE STREET
The project will connect business districts and promote pedestrian safety and comfort.
