Drivers can expect Quentin Road to be under construction from now until Thanksgiving.
The Cook County Highway Department will resurface Quentin Road from Illinois Avenue up to West Northwest Highway, affecting 2.1 miles of roadway.
The project involves removing the curb and gutter on both sides of the roadway and applying two layers of asphalt, which will raise the roadway by three inches. They are also adding a left-turn lane from both north- and southbound Quentin Road onto Wood Street, which will help ease the traffic, said Hassan Mohebbi, senior project engineer for the Cook County Highway Department.
Although one lane in each direction will remain open for the duration of the $3.8 million project, drivers should avoid the area if possible, Mohebbi said.
Those who live on Quentin Road should be aware that their driveways may be inaccessible for three to four days when they pour concrete, and they should consider parking their vehicles on a side street, Mohebbi said. The projects contractor is going to be knocking on doors and informing residents before this happens.
