John Flaherty – TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER
Hopefully the dark, dreary days of winter are behind us, and we can continue with the upgrading of roads and roadways within the unincorporated areas of Bremen Township. The constant freeze/thaw winter conditions of our Midwest winters take a toll on paved surfaces, and the department is now in the process of filling in and repairing the potholes that the season has left behind.
We closed out the year completing resurfacing projects throughout the township, with two of the largest being in the Crestwood/Midlothian and Hazel Crest/Country Club Hills areas. Over the past few months, we have been planning and prioritizing roads to be resurfaced during the upcoming season. Work will soon begin in the unincorporated areas of Tinley Park and Posen, as soon as the asphalt plants open.
With our wet, rainy season fast approaching, we remind you to make sure that your culverts and ditches are free of obstructions to ensure that water flows through properly to avoid flooding and/or standing water. Please call our office at (708) 333-9534 to request any assistance with our roads or roadways.
Have a great summer! I look forward to working for you.
