Recent Change to Companies in Village Taxi Discount Program
Please be aware that All-Star Cab recently closed its business and no longer services participants in the Taxi Discount Program. This was a decision made solely by the All-Star business owners. American Taxi and 303 Taxi still offer rides through the Village's program. We will search for a company to replace All-Star to try to continue to provide a variety of options to residents. We thank All-Star for their years of service.
Getting Around Illinois provides latest winter road conditions
As the official start of winter approaches, the Illinois Department of Transportation reminds travelers to visit and bookmark GettingAroundIllinois.com for continually updated information on road conditions.
"The GettingAroundIllinois.com site is a great resource for getting you the latest information to keep you and your family safe in your travels," said Acting Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman. "At this time of year, the weather can quickly change with little warning. Conditions at Point A can be much different than your destination at Point B. GettingAroundIllinois.com is an easy way to keep updated on winter road conditions throughout the state."
Available on your computer and optimized for smartphones, the site includes the ability to identify and zoom in to a location, travel route or destination on a state map. Road conditions are recorded by plow drivers out in the field and relayed to GettingAroundIllinois.com through a cloud-based system to provide a general overview on IDOT-maintained highways.
Interim Fly Quiet Runway Rotation to Begin November 3, 2019
The Interim Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan was proposed by the O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC), in collaboration with the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), in 2017 to provide relief from nighttime noise for the communities around O'Hare International Airport. The Interim Fly Quiet plan is expected to be in place from November 2019 to May 2020 and from September 2020 to January 2021. For more information about the Interim Fly Quiet Program, including the schedule for runway usage, please click here.
Airplane Noise Complaints
To file a complaint about airplane noise, please use this link provided by the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission: Airplane Noise Complaints. It is important for people to submit information to document the numbers and types of issues to the Commission and the City of Chicago so that patterns can be identified and solutions be developed to address concerns. In addition, the Chicago Department of Aviation offers an Aircraft Flight Tracker feature on the Commission's website. This is another tool allowing you to check aircraft operations information in both real-time, as well as in a replay mode by setting the approximate time frame when the noise occurred and viewing what aircraft were in your area. This information can assist you when preparing to submit a noise complaint to the Commission. Click here to view the Aircraft Flight Tracker.
Transportation and Engineering Division
The Transportation and Engineering Division covers a large array of tasks in the planning, design, review, construction, inspection and operation of public and private infrastructure in the Village.
One of the main responsibilities is retail, office and residential site plan review and private and public construction inspection. In addition, project design, inspection services and all project management are provided for Village projects such as the annual street project, sidewalk improvements, drainage improvements, crack sealing and other utility projects.
We also monitor the condition of facilities for vehicles and pedestrians, perform traffic safety and operational studies, coordinate with public transit agencies, and cooperate with state, county, and local jurisdictions on projects of mutual interest. Division members serve as part of an interdisciplinary team to plan, design, and operate public and private transportation facilities in a safe and efficient manner.
The Transportation & Engineering Division also provides services to residents such as drainage inspections, grading concerns, flood plain inquiries, traffic studies, signage and striping, and public transit inquiries.
