For years, many residents in the area of Route19 (Irving Park Road) and Schaumburg Road (West of Route 59) have been concerned about the gravel trucks and semi-truck over the past couple of years. Our stretch of road has become a major short-cut to Route 59, especially during the height of the construction season. 

The gravel and semi-trucks filled with full payloads have increased in volume, barreling down on residential drivers, who directly use these roads when driving to and from work, school, ect..  Drivers are having difficulty turning out of their neighborhoods, in addition to the dangers involved in a potential accident! Drivers tend to drive further back from these trucks, so traffic flow is disrupted, and there is always the occasional errant rocks flying off of trucks.  Obviously, this is all very dangerous to drivers and the community.

We are a quiet residential area that has turned into a rock quarry – we frankly are tired of it!   We would like to see some sort of rerouting take place or weight restriction or something to be done about this relentless truck traffic – many of us bought our homes based on the fact that this was a quiet peaceful enclave across from the forest preserve, a great place to raise a family.  

Residents are requesting that these trucks be rerouted to US Route 20(Lake Street).
