248th Avenue Improvement

Public Meeting Scheduled

A public information meeting is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 10 at the Commissioners Park Pavilion, located at the southeast corner of 111th Street and 248th Avenue. In case of rain, the meeting will be held at the same time and location on Sept. 17. Three alternatives for the project will be presented based on the initial feedback received at the first public information meeting.

The City has identified the need to improve the portion of 248th Avenue that runs from 95th Street to 103rd Street. The goal of this project is to create a better driving experience for motorists, as well as better recreational experiences for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The project scope may include improving the roadway; installing new pavement, curbs and gutters; and installing a new street lighting system. Gaps in the current bike path on the west side of 248th Avenue would be connected. Additionally, the City will investigate the possibility of pouring a new sidewalk on the east side of the roadway, from 95th Street to 103rd Street. 

Timeline

Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and last for approximately 12 months.

Getting Involved

The public is invited to share feedback at a series of meetings and open houses taking place in 2019 and 2020.

A public information meeting is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 10 at the Commissioners Park Pavilion, located at the southeast corner of 111th Street and 248th Avenue. In case of rain, the meeting will be held at the same time and location on Sept. 17.

Three alternatives for the project will be presented based on the initial feedback received at the first public information meeting. Attendees will be able to provide feedback, share concerns and ask questions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendees are asked to wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet away from others and remain on one side of exhibit tables. A virtual meeting, with the same information and opportunities for sharing feedback, is also planned in the next few weeks. Details will be shared as soon as they are available. 

Those who are unable to attend the meetings can provide feedback by contacting Ray Fano, project engineer, at fanor@naperville.il.us.

An initial public information meeting took place on Nov. 7, 2019. About 100 people gathered to ask questions and share their thoughts and concerns about this stretch of roadway.
