UPDATE: Rodenburg Road Closure Rescheduled for June 24
Road Closed Rodenburg Rd. will be closed between Travis Pkwy. and Irving Park Rd. tomorrow from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to facilitate construction and installation of the channelization devices needed to establish a quiet zone for the railroad crossing.

The closing was originally scheduled for June 22, but was rescheduled do to unfavorable weather conditions.

Channelization devices are vertical tubes that prevent vehicles from driving around lowered railroad crossing gates. It is expected the Rodenburg Rd. crossing quiet zone will take effect late this summer or in early fall. More information about the establishment of this quiet zone is available on the Village's website
Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan Begins July 3
night plane landing The Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan that was recently adopted by the Suburban O'Hare Commission has been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, and a six-month test of the plan begins on July 3.

In order to assess whether the rotation plan is providing the intended benefits, the Suburban O'Hare Commission and the O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission are requesting feedback from residents. The Fly Quiet Plan online survey will officially open to residents when the plan begins on July 3.

Under the Fly Quiet Plan, runways used for nighttime air travel will change from week to week. Aviation experts will continue to analyze flight paths and noise monitor data, but this entire program is designed to bring noise relief to residents. If you're feeling a reduced impact from the noise, the commission needs to know so that they can make the rotation permanent. If you're not feeling any noise relief, they need to know that also, to find out what's not working.

More information about the Fly Quiet Plan is available on the Village's website, including runway configurations and links to the reports presented to the Suburban O'Hare Commission.  
Shared Cost Parkway Tree Replacement Program Returns
New Tree Roselle's Shared Cost Parkway Tree Program is back! This 50/50 cost sharing program gives residents the opportunity to purchase a tree for their parkway at half of the cost, with the Village paying for the other half. This is a wonderful way to add to the beauty and enhance the property values of our community.
 
Residents may purchase one or two trees, depending upon the length of the parkway. Trees should be spaced approximately 40 feet apart and at least 10 feet from a driveway. Trees are available in either 2" or 2.5" in diameter. If you wish to have the tree planted in a certain area of your parkway, please mark the spot with paint or with a stake. The Village Forester will check locations to determine if the area can be used for tree planting. 
 
The Parkway Tree Replacement form is available for download from the Village of Roselle website. Tree orders and checks made payable to the Village of Roselle must be received by August 31. Forms and checks may be dropped off or mailed to Roselle Village Hall, C/O Parkway Tree Program, 31 S. Prospect St., Roselle, IL 60172. Orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions, please call Public Works at (630) 671-2368. 
Cashless Toll Collection on I-390 Begins July 5
Cashless toll collection begins on July 5, 2016, on the Illinois Route 390 Tollway (Elgin-O'Hare Expressway) from Lake Street to I-290. According to Illinois Tollway, this will be the first all-electronic roadway on the Illinois Tollway system, and will provide for a safer, more efficient and seamless method of collecting tolls from customers.

Toll collection equipment over the traffic lanes will read the I-PASS transponder on the windshield and automatically collect tolls. Drivers will continue at highway speeds without the need to slow down or stop to pay at a toll. According to Illinois Tollway, individual tolls are lower on I-390 because they are assessed more frequently than other parts of the system, allowing for greater sensitivity for shorter trips and helping local communities provide congestion relief on adjacent roads.

Motorists with I-PASS transponders will pay 50 percent less than those who do not have an I-PASS. Non-I-Pass users will be required to make toll payments online. I-PASS transponders are available at I-PASS Customer Service Centers or any Jewel-Osco location.

For more information, visit the I-390 Tollway page on the Village of Roselle website or visit the Illinois Tollway website
