There will be extensive activity on this stretch of Cermak during construction, which will be shutting down the inner lane in each direction during water main construction.  This restriction will likely cause increased traffic times through the area, which will worsen as additional activities are started.  Active detours will be established in the event of a total road closure, but it is recommended that motorists utilize either W 26th or W 16th St to avoid slowdowns from construction activity.


There will be work intermittently performed on sidewalks and utilities in the right-of-way, as well as at intersections for ramp replacements.  Pedestrian traffic will largely remain open during construction, but should pay attention to any construction signage and closures to avoid active work sites.  Those with mobility issues may wish to seek alternate routes entirely to avoid potential issues.


Business Access

All businesses will remain open during this time, and accommodations will be made to ensure access to businesses are adequately maintained.  There may be the potential for inconveniences during certain phases, which will be conveyed to business owners ahead of time by the contractor or City of Berwyn staff.
