Sheridan Road Closure for Bull Creek Construction
Sheridan Road closure in Beach Park
The Illinois Department of Transportation will be doing a culvert replacement project on Sheridan Road (Illinois 137) over Bull Creak, in Beach Park. The project is scheduled to begin, weather permitting, on Monday, February 12.
The project will require closing Sheridan Road between Wadsworth Road and Oak Forest Drive. A detour will direct motorists to Illinois 173 (21st Street), Green Bay Road (Illinois 131) and York House Road. A special truck detour will use Illinois 173 and Skokie Highway (U.S. 41) to meet back with Illinois 137. Access to residences and businesses within the construction limits will be maintained throughout construction.
The $7.8 million project, which involves replacing the existing culvert with a triple box culvert, installing new storm sewers and ADA-compliant sidewalks and ramps on both sides of Sheridan Road, is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.
Important Notice: Energy Utility Contracts
The Village of Beach Park would like to remind you to use care in responding to solicitations regarding your energy utilities, such as gas and electricity. Exercise caution and carefully review any forms you may receive from energy utility companies, whether through USPS mail or electronically.
Your energy utility providers or solicitors occasionally send these forms to communicate changes or updates to their services, terms, or rates. To protect your interests and ensure you make informed decisions, we strongly advise that you take the time to thoroughly read through these documents. By doing so, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of the implications they may have on your energy utilities and associated costs.
When examining any forms that you receive in the mail, we recommend paying close attention to the following key elements:
Terms and Conditions: Familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions outlined in the document. Ensure you understand the rights, responsibilities, and obligations involved.
Rates and Pricing: Review any proposed changes to rates, fees, or pricing structures. Compare them to your current energy plan to determine the potential impact on your budget.
Service Details: Take note of any modifications to the services being provided. Assess whether they align with your energy needs and preferences.
Should you encounter any uncertainty or require clarification, we encourage you to reach out for assistance. You can contact your local utility company directly.
