The Fullerton Avenue Road Resurfacing Project will begin the week of July 15.

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.

Addison Police Joins ‘Neighbors’ by Ring to Provide Users with Real-Time, Local Crime and Safety Information
Neighbors aims to reduce crime in communities by connecting people, security cameras and law enforcement.
Addison, IL-- 05/15/2019– The Addison Police today announced that it is joining the free Neighbors app by Ring to provide the Addison community with real-time, local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe.
Residents can text addisonil to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on iOS and Android and use the app to; join their neighborhood; share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; and receive real-time safety alerts from their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.
Director of Addison Police Tim Hayden said, “The Neighbors app makes it easy for residents to keep one another informed of local crime and safety situations occurring in their neighborhood. Now Addison Police can join the conversation directly and benefit all of us by helping to solve crimes and further the mission of the Addison Police in ensuring the safety and security of all who live, work and frequent Addison. The Addison Police Department will also be able to write their own posts and help spread information about recent crimes in the area or real-time crime information. The Neighbors app by Ring is completely free to anyone and Addison residents do not need to have a camera in order to participate in this program.
The Addison Police Department is among other agencies in Illinois to partner with Ring for this crime fighting tool. Like other social media sharing platforms, the Neighbors app is not meant to replace 911. If Addison residents see a crime or suspicious activity occurring they are asked to immediately dial 911.
Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said, “We’re excited to have the Addison Police join Neighbors to keep their community up-to-date on local crime and safety information. Over the past few years we have learned that, when neighbors, the Ring team and law enforcement all work together, we can create safer communities. Neighbors is meant to facilitate real-time communication between these groups, while maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost. By bringing security to every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, the Addison community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”

The Police Department announced plans for the July 4th traffic enforcement with a focus on impaired and unbuckled drivers. The safety campaign runs from June 17 through July 8 to encompass three summer weekends leading up to and after Independence Day.
“We’re asking all of our residents and visitors to celebrate Independence Day safely,” said Sgt. Dennis Kotlinski. “It’s simple: If you’re driving, don’t drink or use drugs. Our officers will be out in full force to keep impaired drivers off the road.”
The Addison Police Department will join the Illinois State Police and more than 160 local police and sheriff’s departments for the increased statewide enforcement effort.
“This Fourth of July designate a sober driver and don’t let friends or family members drive under the influence,” said Sgt. Dennis Kotlinski
Other important tips include:
- Give your designated driver your keys before you go out.
- If you are drunk or impaired by marijuana or other drugs, call a taxi, take mass transit, use your favorite ride-sharing service, or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely.
- Use your community’s designated driver program.
- Promptly report drunk drivers to law enforcement by pulling over and dialing 911.
- Make sure everyone in your vehicle wears their seat belt. Not only is it the law, it’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns are made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The crackdown runs concurrently with a media campaign reminding motorists that impaired driving has “Life or Death” consequences. Visit LifeOrDeathIllinois.com for more information.
