Crawford reconstruction ideas go to village board next week

Recommendations from the Lincolnwood traffic commission, on a proposed Crawford Avenue reconstruction project set to start next year, will get their first review next week by village trustees.

Lincolnwood Police Chief Robert LaMantia this week invited village residents to attend the session, both to hear the recommendations and give their own responses to them.

Trustees are scheduled to review the commission report during a committee of the whole meeting 6 p.m. June 18 in village board chambers, 6900 N. Lincoln Ave.

The construction project is under Cook County jurisdiction, but village officials are working with the county highway department during the design phase.

The traffic commission spent several months considering design options, asking for public input and holding meetings to that end in December, January and March. The commission's goal was to ensure safe traffic patterns along Crawford and adjacent Lincolnwood streets.

Residents who attended those sessions heard that work would take place in three stages; from Devon to Pratt Avenues, from Pratt to Touhy Avenues, and Touhy north to Jarvis Avenue.

Some proposal include:
• Increasing lane widths from 10 to 11 feet;
• Narrowing medians from 16 to 12 feet, although this would only affect the project north of Pratt;
• New left turn lanes at intersections such as Crawford and Lincoln;
• The possible restriction of left turns onto some side streets, such as Jarvis, Sherwin, Chase, Jarlath and Fitch Avenues.

Work on Crawford, which will be managed by the Cook County Highway Department, isn't scheduled to begin until 2010, and officials have been seeking public input in advance of the design phase later this year.

For more information, or to ask questions prior to the meeting, call LaMantia at (847) 745-4748.
