Streets Division of the Public Works Department
The Streets Division provides a comprehensive maintenance program for streets, parkways, and sidewalks. The Village maintains 16.7 center lane miles of streets, as well as 2.46 miles of sidewalks.
ResponsibilitiesThis Division is responsible for:
- Filling cracks
- Maintaining parkways and parks
- Patching pavement
- Provide installation and maintenance of all signs on Village maintained streets
- Providing snow and ice control
- Repairing potholes
Roadway JurisdictionThe 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 ConcernsIf 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.
Street SignsOur street signs are vital directional guideposts that are, unfortunately, all too often the targets of vandals and pranksters. Should you notice a missing or vandalized street sign, please call the Public Works Department at 708-246-3154 to report its location.
Stop SignsMissing Stop signs are considered an emergency life-safety issue and are replaced immediately. Please call us as soon as possible to report a missing Stop sign.
New Sign RequestsResidents occasionally call to request that a Stop sign, Yield sign, or other traffic signs be added in a particular location. In order to have a request for additional traffic signage or a change in signage considered, a written request must be submitted to the Village Administrator. The request must state the following:
- Type of sign that is desired
- Potential location
- Reason why the resident feels it is necessary
