The Village of Posen has received a grant from Cook County as part of their Invest in Cook program to improve ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessibility Village wide. The Invest in Cook ADA Sidewalk Rehabilitation construction project is now completed. Sod was placed at these corners where grass repairs were needed. We ask the residents on the corner houses where work was performed to please water the grass so it takes. New curbs and gutters, sidewalk, and detectable warnings plates were installed at approved ADA slopes. This work was performed between Western and Harrison along 144th streets and 143rd street.
