Public Input: Phase I Study – Ridgeland Avenue Streetscape Improvements

The Village of Chicago Ridge has initiated preliminary engineering (Phase I Engineering Study) to investigate streetscape enhancements along the east side of Ridgeland Avenue from 108th Street to 107th Street and from the Metra tracks to 102nd Place. This project will be a continuation of the recent investment the Village is making along Ridgeland Avenue to improve pedestrian accessibility. This project will include sidewalk removal and replacement, decorative stamped concrete parkways, curb and gutter removal and replacement, curb ramps, driveway improvements, ADA curb ramps at intersections, cross walk improvements, and landscaping. Please review the attached plan and let us know if you have any comments or questions.

As part of the Phase I Engineering Study, there is a formal comment period for the project through October 30, 2020.  Provided with this letter is a comment form, which can be mailed to the Village or scanned/emailed to Andrew Pufundt (contact information below). Comments can be submitted at any time throughout the project development process, but any comments received during this time will be included in the Phase I Engineering documentation for the project.

This fall, the Village will be applying for federal funding for design engineering and construction for this project. If funding is obtained, the Village anticipates construction begin no earlier than 2023, which is contingent on identifying project funding. Additional stakeholder coordination will occur during subsequent phases of the project. Updates for this project will be located on the Village website.

Please contact Andrew Pufundt at (847) 823-0500 or email at with any questions or concerns.
