Welcome to the New Downtown Glen Ellyn!

A new chapter in Glen Ellyn's history: Rebuilding our downtown

The Village of Glen Ellyn is investing in a once-in-a-generation project to ensure Downtown is a destination for residents and visitors for years to come. The project will replace and upgrade storm, sanitary, and water lines, build new sidewalks and roads and install irrigated granite planters with seat walls. The design will maintain the historic look and feel of downtown while meeting ADA accessibility requirements. The new streetscape also provides the opportunity to improve the health of the urban forest by improving growing conditions for trees, increasing the variety of tree species, and doubling the overall number of trees downtown!

The first phase of construction is complete!

Work is substantially complete on Main, Duane, and Hillside. The next phase of construction will commence in 2023.
