Roosevelt Road Pedestrian Underpass Survey Available

The Roosevelt Road Pedestrian Underpass on Wheaton Avenue was closed in September 2017, after it was determined the structure needed safety repairs. The Wheaton City Council is evaluating various options and would like feedback from residents regarding the future of the underpass. Residents are invited to take the underpass survey online at www.wheaton.il.us/underpass through April 15.

Drop It and Drive

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the Wheaton Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation, the Illinois State Police, and more than 100 local law enforcement agencies throughout the state to remind drivers to drop their phones or pay up. 

Motorists will see increased patrols and enforcement zones across Illinois throughout the month. The Wheaton Police Department will be ticketing drivers who text or use their cellphones while driving.  

Over the past decade, distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of vehicle crashes on our roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, 3,166 people died in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2017. For more information and tips on safe driving, visit the City’s website.
