About the Projects
The 108th Street Improvement Project will improve safety, drainage, and pedestrian connectivity in the area. This project is planned to be reconstructed to a three-lane roadway (one through lane in each direction with a center turn lane) with roundabouts at the North Mill Road, Burt Street and Mill Valley Road intersections. New storm sewer improvements, curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities standards, a trail and sidewalks will also be constructed. The initial project area was between Burt Street to Decatur Street, but the boundary was extended south to Mill Valley Road to make additional improvements.
Construction on this project is anticipated to begin in Spring 2022 and be complete in fall 2023.
Adjacent to the 108th Street project, the Oakbrook Channel has degraded over time, resulting in major streambank erosion and stability concerns. The area around the channel has been compromised, including sanitary sewer lines and power transmission line poles. There are also multiple private storm drain outfalls along the channel and the City is working with owners to develop solutions. The proposed project focuses on the downstream channel beginning near Seward Street and the tributary channel perpendicular to 108th Street near Charles Street.
