This month, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) will continue its sludge pipeline replacement project along Devon Avenue, between Cicero Avenue and McCormick Boulevard. Work along Devon Avenue will have significant traffic impacts for westbound traffic and will generally be completed in three sections from east to west: (1) McCormick to Lincoln, (2) Lincoln to Crawford, and (3) Crawford to Cicero. Each section is anticipated to take approximately two to three months to complete.
Traffic and parking lanes on Devon Avenue will be closed at various locations depending on the crew's location. Access to the side streets within each section will not be allowed. Joel Kennedy Constructing Corp. (JKC) will do its best to keep the entire project area safe while limiting the disturbance caused by this work. They will also work closely with residents and businesses throughout the construction process to ensure driveway access is coordinated as smoothly as possible. Please proceed with caution while in the project area. If there are any questions or comments about the construction, please contact JKC at 847-360-8080.
