Village of Hinsdale Engineering Project Updates
During construction, residents are encouraged to take alternate streets as much as possible. While streets with construction will be maintained for local traffic as much as possible, you may experience temporary delays, detours, and pavement transitions (a fancy word for "bumps"). For the safety and convenience of everyone in the construction zones, please drive slowly and carefully through these areas. Other work by public utility companies may be conducted to relocate, maintain, or repair the existing public utilities impacted by this construction. Each public utility company will notify residents of their work and their work's impact on the area.
Hinsdale staff will continue to notify residents of the impacts of the Village's construction activities on the streets under construction through e-mailings or notices placed on front doors. If you have not provided an email to the Village to receive notifications, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
