LANSING, Ill. (November 13, 2018) – Lansing Public Works will be installing railroad delineators near the railroad crossings that have been designated to be Quiet Zones, and that work will happen on Wednesday and Friday of this week.

Wednesday, November 14, 7:00am–3:30pm

Installing the delineators will necessitate the closing of the following roads (with railroad tracks) for extended periods of time during the day:

  1. Thornton-Lansing Road at the Railroad tracks. Traffic will be re-routed at Stoney-Island Avenue (on the west) and the road will be blocked off near the tracks on the east.
  2. Ridge Road (near Locust Avenue) will be shut down once Thornton-Lansing Road is completed. Ridge Road will be closed at Hickory for west-bound traffic and Locust for east-bound traffic.

Friday, November 16, 7:00am–3:30pm

Work will continue on Friday, necessitating the closing of the following roads (with railroad tracks) for extended periods of time during the day:

  1. Burnham Avenue near 187th Street
  2. 186th Street near Ridgewood Avenue
  3. Torrence Avenue at 183rd Street

On both days, the project is expected to last until approximately 3:30pm. Please plan alternative routes during both days as no traffic will be able to pass over the tracks while the work is being completed.

The Village of Lansing, the Lansing Police Department, and Lansing Public Works regret the short notice. The Quiet Zone timeline is determined by the railroad, and notice of this stage of the work was only recently received.
