Harger Road Multi Use Path

Harger Rd

The Village of Oak Brook Public Works would like to inform you of a project scheduled to begin in 2020.

The Village initiated engineering to design a new multi-use path to fill in a quarter mile gap in the multi-use path network along Harger Road, which includes crossing Salt Creek. West of Salt Creek the existing Harger Road multi-use path ends at a commercial driveway several hundred feet west of the creek. East of Salt Creek the existing Harger Road multi-use path, which connects to York Woods Forest Preserve and the 25-mile long Salt Creek Greenway Trail, ends at Yorkshire Woods Road intersection approximately 1,000 feet east of the creek. Filling in this gap will allow residents, nearby business employees and hotel patrons west of Salt Creek to access the Village’s and regional multi-use path networks.

Preliminary engineering is near completion and a Public Meeting has been scheduled to inform the public about the proposed improvement and the anticipated project schedule, and to solicit input on the design. The scope of the improvement includes a new separate multi-use path, including a 140-foot bridge over Salt Creek with boardwalk on either side through the floodplain and low-lying areas, and transitions to an asphalt path. Utility relocations and drainage improvements are required, and a new water main will be installed alongside the multi-use path to create additional redundancy in the Village’s water main network. A short (several days) full closure of Harger Road at Salt Creek will be required to place the new pedestrian bridge across Salt Creek. Construction is targeted for Summer/Fall 2020.

The details of the Public Meeting are as follows:

Date:                     Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Time:                     4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
