The Village of Oak Lawn is launching a multi-year project to make needed repairs to our parking garage which will extend the lifespan of the facility.

 

The garage will remain open during the renovations, however:  Please be advised that certain sections of the garage primarily on the 4TH and 5TH floors will be closed off during the repair work. No Parking signs will be posted. PLEASE ADHERE TO THE SIGNS OR YOU WILL BE TICKETED AND TOWEDTraffic patterns will be maintained, however travel lanes will be shifted with traffic control. While work is occurring there may be some occasional dust created as concrete and joint repairs are being made. 

Temporary additional permit parking for users will be located at:  North side of 96TH St. between 52nd Ave and Cook Ave. South side of Yourell Ave. between 52nd Ave. and Cook Ave. 

The First Phase of Repairs Will Begin on May 1St, and Continue Until Approximately August 15TH, of 2017.

This is the first of two scheduled phases of construction. For questions about the repairs please contact Steve Barrett at sbarrett@oaklawn-il.gov.

 

The Village of Oak Lawn has maintained a Red Light Enforcement Program since 2008. The Red light Cameras are located in the Following Locations

95th St. & Pulaski Rd. - Southbound

95th St. & Ridgeland Ave. -West Bound

95th St. & Cicero Ave. - East bound & North bound

97th St. &South West Highway . - South West & North Bound

111th St. & Cicero Ave. - East bound & West bound

These cameras will memorialize violations where motorists proceed through an intersection while the light is red.  These cameras will also capture motorists that do not follow the Law as it pertains to “Right Turn On Red” situations.  The following is taken directly from the Rules of the Road Publication issued by the State of Illinois (https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/pdf_publications/dsd_a112.pdf)

Red light — Stop at the marked stop line. If there is not a marked stop line, stop before entering the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection. Do not go until the light is green and the intersection is clear. You may make a right turn at a red light. You also may make a left turn at a red light when turning from a one-way street onto another one-way street that has traffic moving to the left. In both instances, drivers must come to a complete stop and yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic and pedestrians before turning.

Motorists should always follow safe driving practices, not just when Red Light Cameras are present.  Please click the links to the Question and Answer” and “Myths VS Facts” informational handbills to familiarize yourself with this information and help provide a safe and violation free motoring experience.
