Cap the Ike

Map of the Pave Oak Park project

Project Map

An illustration of the current and proposed lane configurations, demonstrating effects on vehicular traffic flow, is available here.

Additional eastbound and westbound lanes on the Eisenhower Expressway as it runs through Oak Park would improve the flow of traffic, especially during rush hours. Commuters would spend less time driving to work and more time on other activities, including eating at the new McDonald's Restaurant that may be constructed on the present site of Rehm Park in Oak Park.
