Welcome to the Village of Palos Park website
The Village of Palos Park is a charming bedroom community nestled in the midst of dense wooded land. A wonderful place to live and raise a family in a natural environment. We love this town for its profound natural features, where hills, creeks, and ravines abound. Large, aged oak trees line our streets and properties. Our one-acre zoning in residential areas has been vital in maintaining these natural assets, and the community members actively work to maintain our “pastoral setting, rural splendor.”

LaGrange Road Widening
SCOPE OF WORK: WEEK OF MARCH 2, 2015
All work described and scheduled is highly weather dependent and may change day to day. The contractor is scheduled to pothole patch the existing LaGrange Road pavement on Friday, March 6. This work will require a temporary lane closure in the area of the repair. IDOT and the contractor will be evaluating the condition of LaGrange Road on a weekly basis and will pothole patch or repair the pavement as necessary.
Temporary lane closures are permitted throughout the day except between the hours of 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. There will be times when the contractor will be working both night and day. Instances may occur when temporary lane closures may extend past 2:30 p.m. to allow the contractor to complete a certain phase of work. Saturday work is permitted. No lane closures are allowed on Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
As a reminder, irrigations systems are the responsibility of the business/property owner and are not part of the JULIE locating system. Irrigation systems located within the existing or proposed ROW or easements need to be identified and in some cases relocated by the business/property owner. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Questions may be directed to: http://www.dot.state.il.us/US45lagrange/index.html. Updates, as they become available, will be posted on IDOT’s website as well as the Village of Orland Park’s site at www.orlandpark.org.
