In 2011, the Southwest Conference of Mayors (SCM) prepared a transportation and economic development plan for the Harlem Avenue Corridor. The ultimate goal of the plan is to develop a comprehensive corridor approach that unites the corridor, its activities and character to make it a more highly-functioning transportation corridor and activity center for the southwest suburbs. The plan complements, not supersedes, existing plans of corridor communities.
The corridor runs along Harlem Avenue from 63rd Street on the north to I-80 on the south. It runs through the following communities: Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Burbank, Chicago Ridge, Oak Lawn, Orland Park, Palos Heights, Palos Hills, Tinley Park, and Worth, as well as a portion of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County.
