Roadway Jurisdiction


The Village of Indian Head Park in conjunction with the Village Engineer have created a map that shows the jurisdiction for roadways throughout the Village. The jurisdiction determines what entity is responsible for maintaining the roadways. Public Works does not have authority to do repairs, plow or maintain County and State roads.

Roadway Concerns


If you have a concern about a roadway maintained by Indian Head Park please call the Village Hall at 708-246-3080 to report its location.

 Please note, for any maintenance issues on Wolf Road and/or Plainfield Road these are Cook County Roadways. Please call the Cook County Highway Maintenance 24 Hour Phone at 708-448-8806. 

If you believe your vehicle has sustained damages, from a pothole or other cause, on a roadway maintained by the Cook County Highway and Transportation Division complete and submit an Incident Report Form with the Department of Risk Management.
