Roadside Safety Checkpoint Notice

The Addison Police Department will be conducting a Roadside Safety Checkpoint from 9:00 PM, Friday, July 12, to 1:00 AM, Saturday July 13, 2019, for vehicles traveling westbound in the area of 240 East Lake Street.

Vehicles traveling westbound on Lake Street on July 12, 2019 will be stopped in a pre-established, systematic fashion for a brief inspection of safety and driver violations. Police will be checking vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses, proof of insurance, and driver sobriety in addition to vehicle safety violations.

The purpose of conducting the Roadside Safety Checkpoint is to enhance the safety of the motoring public in the Village of Addison. A statewide coordinated effort to reduce drinking and driving is underway and the Addison Police Department is a proud partner in this venture.

Our hope is that citizens can look at this minor inconvenience as their contribution to the safety of the motoring public and their opportunity to be part of the solution.

If you have any questions or request additional information, please contact Sergeant Dennis Kotlinski at 630- 543-3080.


The Fullerton Avenue Road Resurfacing Project will begin the week of July 15.  The limits of the work are from Swift Road on the west side of town to Addison Road on the east side of town with Rohlwing Road excluded.  Prior to patching and resurfacing of the road, the contractor will begin with curb and gutter replacement along with the installation of various storm sewer improvements.  Additionally, public walk will be replaced at all intersections for required ADA compliance.  The entire project is expected to be completed by the middle of November depending on weather conditions.

Temporary lane closures will be in place and may change daily, so please drive cautiously through the construction zone.  Electronic message boards are in place along the project cautioning drivers and advising motorists of the work.

The Fullerton Avenue Road Resurfacing Project is being funded in part by IDOT, which has contracted with R.W. Dunteman to complete the work.
