While the crossing is now open, work on Lincoln continues, with full project completion scheduled for late June. The scope of the project includes water main installation, water service transfers, pavement patching, milling, and resurfacing.
Intersections along Lincoln will continue to be closed periodically as work progresses; detour signage will be posted as closures occur, and area residents and businesses will be provided with advance notice of closures affecting their specific street. To avoid conflicts with construction operations, affected residents are requested to have vehicles out of their driveways prior to 7 AM.
Residents should avoid the construction zones as much as possible. Street parking will be prohibited on Lincoln Street from Chicago Ave to North St. for the remainder of the project. Daily parking is available on side streets. If travel through the work zone is necessary, please use caution.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Please contact the Village of Hinsdale Engineering Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-789-7029 with any questions or concerns.
Second Mailing of May Water Bills
The Village of Hinsdale and the Village of Western Springs both utilize the service of the same third-party vendor for the printing and mailing of water bills. On or around May 7, 2015, those customers on the May billing cycle should have received their May water bill processed by this third-party vendor. Due to an error in processing by the third-party vendor, the mailing for the Village of Hinsdale water bills was sent using the mailing envelope and return envelope of the Village of Western Springs. A similar error was made on the Village of Western Springs water bills, which were mailed out using Village of Hinsdale envelopes.
Although the actual water bill you may have received was correct, we are resending the entire water bill mailing so that account holders receive the correct return envelope. If you have not yet sent in your payment, please disregard the prior water bill mailing and make your payment using the envelope provided in the second mailing. If you have already mailed in your payment, please be assured that we will be working closely with the Village of Western Springs to make sure that your payment is processed correctly.
We sincerely apologize for the confusion caused by the error in mailing. If you have any comments or concerns, please contact (630) 789-7025.
