As you may be aware or heard in the news, the State of Illinois has not passed a budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Due to the fact a budget has not been passed, all projects with State / Federal Funding have been order to stop construction on Friday, June 30th until a budget or other spending measure is passed by the legislature.

The Harlem Avenue project does include State / Federal funding; therefore, construction is currently anticipated to stop on June 30th. Prior to that date, all concrete that has been removed will be replaced, traffic control devices will be reviewed for compliance, and the site will be cleaned.

We apologize for the inconvenience of these delays, but unfortunately there is nothing the Village of Glenview can do in this situation until the State Legislature / IDOT authorizes work to resume.
