Village of Hinsdale Engineering Project Updates
During construction, residents are encouraged to take alternate streets as much as possible. Construction zones may be marked for "Local Traffic Only". This applies to the residents living in the construction zone so that they may get to and from their homes. All other traffic should use the designated detour routes. Vehicles traveling through construction zones do so at their own risk and should expect to experience temporary delays, detours, and degraded pavement conditions. For the safety and convenience of everyone in the construction zones, please drive slowly and carefully through these areas.
Public utility companies may be conducting construction in Hinsdale to relocate, maintain, or repair their public utilities. 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.
