RPD-Traffic Update.

Riverside Residents:

The traffic volume continues to be extremely heavy with the railroad crossing shut down at Harlem Avenue.

I am requesting that residents and motorists continue to be patient and to plan well in advance. The downtown area becomes very congested with the railroad crossing at Longcommon and with children walking to and from school - and the fact that the residential streets are really not designed to handle the current traffic volume.

I have personally followed up with IDOT. They are on schedule and the railroad crossing is to be completed on September 4. That's the information we have as of today.

We’ll keep monitoring the situation and updating our residents as new information becomes available.
