NOTICE OF TRIAL TRAFFIC AND/OR PARKING MODIFICATIONS
Impacted Area: AUSTIN between DEMPSTER and LINCOLN
Trial Period: December 20, 2016 to March 20, 2017
In an effort to ensure the safe and efficient flow of traffic through our community, Village personnel routinely review areas of the Village in order to recommend changes in traffic restrictions where appropriate. Recently, as part of this review, it was determined that certain traffic regulations and accompanying signage along Austin Ave. between Dempster St. and Lincoln Ave. may no longer be necessary.
Specifically, these are the “No Right Turn 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM Except Saturday Sunday Holidays” signs on the east side of Austin Ave. at South Park, Capulina, and Crain Sts. for northbound traffic. In addition, the “No Left Turn 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM Except Saturday Sunday Holidays” signs on the west side of Austin for southbound traffic.
Municipal Code Section 5-1-4 authorizes the Police Chief (with approval from the Village Administrator) to make temporary changes to Village traffic regulations for the purpose of determining the appropriateness of permanent changes. Therefore, for a period of 90 days, from December 20, 2016 to March 20, 2017, the Public Works Department will remove the signs, and the Police Department will monitor the situation. Residents are encouraged to provide their feedback to the Village during this trial period.
