What the Project Entails
The Village looks to address the roadway, sidewalk, and underground utility needs, as wells as ADA compliance issues throughout downtown. Specific street beautification improvements will include various streetscape components such as street lights, bike racks, benches, trees and tree grates, signage, sidewalk decorative features and others. The projects will also seek to address and prioritize items like bike parking, sidewalk cafes, tree locations, public art, and other ideas and subjects that may be included in the project.
The limits of the project will include Main Street from Hillside Avenue to Anthony Street, Pennsylvania Avenue from Western Avenue to Park Boulevard, Crescent Boulevard from Prospect Avenue to Park Boulevard, Forest Avenue from Crescent Boulevard to Pennsylvania Avenue, Glenwood Avenue from Crescent Boulevard to Pennsylvania Avenue, Prospect Avenue from Duane Street to Pennsylvania Avenue and Duane Street from Prospect Avenue to Forest Avenue.
Previous Glen Ellyn Streetscaping
The Village hasn’t updated its downtown streetscaping since 1986. These improvements are long-overdue and much-needed to ensure the Village’s continued vibrancy and success for years to come!
