Construction is underway on drainage improvements along Evans Road and Douglas Avenue. The Village of Flossmoor contracted with M&J Underground to address storm sewer drainage issues which compound the Village's flooding issues. Installation of the Douglas Avenue storm sewer is scheduled for Monday, October 4 and Tuesday, October 5. For the safety of the construction crews, area pedestrians and vehicle traffic, Douglas Avenue will be closed to local traffic between the alley north of Flossmoor Road and School Street. This road closure will only be between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. It is anticipated that the greatest traffic impact will be to Parker Junior High School parent drop-off and pick-up. Drivers will not have access to Douglas Avenue from Flossmoor Road. Vehicles traveling east on School Street will use Park Drive and Leavitt Avenue to access Flossmoor Road. The Village will have additional patrol and traffic control signage, including detour signs, to direct traffic around Leavitt Park to Flossmoor Road. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but it is essential to ensure work is completed as safely and quickly as possible.
