Street Closure Begins

On July 21st, the Dept. of Transportation closed off the short section of Fairfield Ave. between the playlot and the park expansion site. Temporary jersey barricades separate the new park area from the playlot and keep the cars off the old street. After the concrete is removed by CDOT, the Park District will remove about 12 inches of topsoil and replace with new soil and sod. Once this is complete, a permanent fence will be installed around the perimeter of the new area. The Park District hopes to complete this project by October. For more information, see Park Expansion
