The following message was sent from the Village of Wilmette regarding the road work on Hibbard Road…

This newsletter is to inform you that the final asphalt paving has begun on the Illinois Department of Transportation's (IDOT) Hibbard Road resurfacing project from Skokie Blvd. in Wilmette to Hill Road in Winnetka.  Asphalt paving began today (Tuesday) at 8:30 AM and is expected to be substantially complete by the end of the day on Wednesday, October 10, weather permitting.  Work will not begin until 8:30 AM on Wednesday as well. 

This work will require Hibbard Road to be reduced to one lane using flagmen near the paving operations. Significant delays are expected so plan accordingly and use alternate routes if possible. 

This project is supervised by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Questions during construction should be directed to Glen Pennington, PE, Resident Engineer at (630) 816-5940 between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM or at glen.pennington@illinois.gov.

 Questions about the project in general can also be directed to Dan Manis, PE, Village Engineer at  manisd@wilmette.com or (847) 853-7602. 

The morning drop-off at Marie Murphy will not be significantly impacted however, afternoon pick-up will.  Please use Illinois Road to avoid significant delays.  Thank you!
