Dear D102 Staff and Families,  

We’ve received communication from La Grange Public Works & BNSF regarding construction in the La Grange area. Construction and full closures will occur October 6th through October 16thon Brainard Ave Crossing. Brainard Ave will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic throughout the day. This is a complete reconstruction, meaning there is no way to maintain a partial crossing, and BNSF cannot allow pedestrians to cross. 

They have advised commuters to divert to Kensington, Ashland, Gilbert, or La Grange Rd crossings to get across the tracks. They have also advised an increase in noise as trains are required to whistle while passing through the work area. Advanced warning and detour signs will be placed a week before the street closure. 

 Upon completion, the crossing is anticipated to significantly improve for vehicles and pedestrians.  Please consider these traffic routes and detours while commuting to work or school. 

Thank you,
La Grange D102
