Construction on North 143rd St Aurora Ave to Palatine Ave North
Aurora Rapid Ride Pedestrian Improvements and Greenwood Place Apartments has turned North 143rd into one large construction project this winter. Breaking ground last fall at 143rd and Greenwood is a 49 unit apartment complex including commercial spaces and underground parking for 49 vehicles. Greenwood Place apartments will upgrade street frontage adding sidewalks, trees, planters and benches on Greenwood and North 143rd. The project is tying into SDOT’s pedestrian improvements on 143rd which is currently constructing a 6′ wide concrete sidewalk on the North side of 143rd from Aurora Ave to Palatine Ave North.
New sidewalks are currently installed from Linden Ave N to Aurora Ave to improve access to Aurora’s Rapid Ride E line which opened for service February 15th. Heavy equipment and workers with Gary Merlino construction are currently deployed along 143rd upgrading drainage piping from Fremont to Palatine. Broadview residents could experience lane closures and delays during work hours 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday to Friday.
