West Lane Road - circa 1920

IL-173, West Lane Road
Circa 1920

The Village of Machesney Park continues to work to improve the streets within the Village, with a long-term goal of having curbs, gutters, and drainage systems throughout the entire Village.  The Village’s Public Works and Planning & Zoning Departments work closely with McMahon Engineering, Illinois DOT, and many others to schedule, bid, and complete road improvement projects each and every year.  The Village’s roads have come a long way, as all things in Machesney Park have, and will only continue to get better each year with the help of the residents and continued efforts by the Village Administration.  If you have questions or concerns regarding construction and road improvement projects, please contact Chad Hunter, Superintendent of Public Works at Village Hall.
