Work is progressing on South Broadway between Burd Street and Main Street on the EAST side of the street. Corners have been removed and curb formation is taking place as well as the demolition of the sidewalk. The contractor is helping provide access where needed and will leave the stores, restaurants, and residences fully accessible at the end of each work day. Concrete is expected for curbs and the "buffer area" between the curb and the ADA compliant sidewalk "walkway" by the end of the week. The weather is cooperating and the project is on schedule for this block.
August 10, 2022
On Thursday, August 11th, 2022, surveyors for the new sidewalk between Burd Street and Main Street will be on site. This will require parking restrictions on both sides of the street. As soon as they surveyors complete their work, the parking spaces will be reopened. Construction is expected to start on Monday, August 15th, 2022 on the EAST side of the street. Parking will be restricted on both sides during construction to maintain traffic flow and safety. Each block is expected to take approximately1.5 weeks, weather dependent.

Statement from the Mayor and Village Board:
Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing some inexcusable issues with the engineering firm and aspects related to the Broadway Streetscape Project. We have been and will continue to pursue every option available to ensure these issues are remedied and that potential issues are identified and remediated before any future work proceeds.
This has been a frustrating process from the very beginning of this project. We still see the possibilities of a wonderful upgrade for Broadway. Another in a series of upgrades that makes our village pedestrian friendly and safe. More details on the Broadway Streetscape
October 29, 2021: Unfortunately the sidewalk project has hit a setback. The partially constructed sidewalk along North Broadway between First Ave and High Ave will have to be demolished and rebuilt. The original design was engineered to comply with DOT regulations for a five foot wide walkway, however, it resulted in an unacceptable slope past the walking path to the curb. We have ordered the contractors to stop work while the Village works with engineers and the DOT on a remedy. The contractors will be back on site this week to rebuild the sidewalk.
Update on the median island on North Broadway: The Village Board decided on October 28, 2021 to remove the median island. It will be replaced with "bump-outs" on the west and east side of the North Broadway in addition to a crosswalk. The contractor will be back on site beginning November 1, 2021 to demolish the island. Reconstruction of this area will be scheduled for Spring 2022.
October 22, 2021: Sidewalk demo and prep work continues on N. Broadway between High Ave and First Ave. The crosswalk on North Broadway between Fourth Ave and Fifth Ave is under review and work is expected to resume next week.
