About the Project
Beginning the week of April 17, the Village of Lombard, in partnership with Thomas Engineering, will begin work on the Downtown Sidewalk Improvements Project along St. Charles Road between Craig Place and Elizabeth Street. The project will replace the existing brick pavers with concrete sidewalks and include a trim of decorative brick pavers between the tree vaults and curb. The design will maintain the historic look and feel of downtown while also helping to meet ADA accessibility requirements.
The project also provides the opportunity to increase the variety of tree species, by removing improper species for the area and planting 25 new trees with larger tree vaults. Streetscape amenities, such as benches, garbage cans and bicycle racks will be replaced as part of the project and a covered bicycle corral will be installed near the 7-11 to serve the downtown.
