Please notify the City’s Police Department via 911 or submit an on-line request at http://westchicago.wpengine.com/overnight-parking/if overnight street parking is required at your residence during construction.
In addition, water services may be interrupted for residents located on Pomeroy Street and Stimmel Street, both between Wood Street and Joliet Street.

Please note that all construction activities are scheduled between 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Saturday. No construction will occur on Sundays or holidays.
If you have any privately-owned items within the City Right-of-Way (ROW) along the street noted above, including but not limited to, landscape items, buried dog fences, sprinkler systems, etc., please remove and/or clearly identify these items prior to the start of construction so the contractor is aware of their presence. The City’s ROW typically extends from the center of the roadway to one foot beyond the edge of City sidewalk (one foot past the sidewalk as you face towards a residential house). Please note that neither the City nor the contractors are responsible for any damage done to privately-owned items located within the City ROW.
Residential waste collection services affected by the construction will be coordinated between the Project Manager referenced below and Groot Industries, Inc. (the City’s waste collection contractor). Any changes to the current waste collection schedule will be made available to the public via newsletter and mailed to the residents.
Mail delivery service by the United States Postal Service (USPS) is not anticipated to be disrupted and the USPS will be informed about the upcoming construction. If you feel that your mail delivery service is disrupted, please contact the Project Manager referenced below.
Traffic control signs will be posted prior to and during construction notifying residents of the proposed construction and/or detour routes.
