Background 

Last fall, the Village delivered to you and your neighbors a Resident Information Bulletin regarding a traffic study performed along Pine Street, Wille Street and Henry Street. The purpose of the study was to gather vehicle data before completion of the new apartments at Central Road & Main Street. Results of the traffic study can be found on the Village web site at www.mountprospect.org/pine-wille-henry-study. And per the direction of the Village Board of Trustees a second traffic study will be performed after tenants have moved into the new apartments.

Part of last year’s traffic study included observing traffic at the Pine-Russel-Henry intersection. We noted that many motorists do not come to a complete stop, particularly northbound traffic on Pine Street. The STOP sign is positioned far from the intersection making it difficult for motorists to see other vehicles entering the intersection. Even though there haven’t been any recorded accidents at the intersection in many years, the Public Works Department has developed a plan that is expected to improve STOP sign compliance, slow vehicles, and enhance safety at the intersection.

The Work

A concept plan is shown below. The center island will be slightly expanded, STOP signs on Pine Street and Russel Street moved closer to the intersection, and pavement markings added to guide motorists through the intersection. The work has been included as part of this year’s Street Resurfacing Program. Construction is expected to begin in a few weeks, weather depending. Initial work will include removing the center island curb, relocating the drainage structures, and pouring the new center island curb and sidewalk. Relocating the STOP signs, installing the pavement markings, and restoring the center island with topsoil and grass will complete the work. Residents will have access to their driveways throughout the project and there will not be interruption to mail delivery or garbage pick-up. 

The Schedule

Work is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of May 25.  With construction being completed by the end of June 2020.
