The Village will be closing a portion of Grand Boulevard to vehicles in order to allow restaurants to use the sidewalk and street for outdoor dining. The closure will begin late Thursday, July 23, and will go through Sunday evening. Non-restaurant businesses will remain open. Current plans call for this to continue every weekend until Labor Day.
Grand will be closed to vehicles from 3733/3730 Grand Blvd south to the intersection of Grand/Fairview/Brookfield/Prairie, street closure and parking map. A twelve foot lane in the middle of the street will become a pedestrian thoroughfare. Outdoor dining will end at 10:30 PM each evening.
Please note that no parking will be allowed on this portion of Grand at all on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Parking will still be available north of the closure, though a few spaces will be kept free in order to allow cars to turn around. Free public parking will be available adjacent to the train station on Brookfield and Burlington Avenues all weekend.
The Village is excited to be able to support our restaurants and enhance the Grand Boulevard Business District.
