Water Main Replacement On Bailey Road Will Pause For One Week

Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– At a Saturday morning budget review, Mayor John Ostenburg informed the Village Board that water main replacement on Bailey Road would cease for one week to give residents in the area time to calm down a bit after the explosion that occurred there earlier this week.

Citing "a fair number of elderly residents" in the area, the perimeter fence ordered by the State Fire Marshall, Ostenburg said he and staff felt it would be a good idea to give residents a break from added traffic, to allow emotions "to settle down a bit," after experiencing the trauma of the gas explosion that destroyed a duplex on the street, the mayor said.

The interruption in water main replacement will not add costs to the project, Ostenburg said.
