On The Road to Holiday Travel (Construction!)

If you are planning on traveling over the Labor Day Weekend, you're not alone.  In fact, AAA Travel is projecting a 2.9 percent increase in holiday travels this year over last!

In Illinois, 1.8 million people will be driving over the long holiday weekend, so I thought I would take this opportunity to alert you to several NEW construction projects getting underway in the Chicago suburbs this week - remember - knowledge is power!

Beginning this week through October 31st pavement repairs with lane reductions will take place at the following locations:
