248th Ave. Noise Walls

Last night the city of Naperville held a public meeting at the Municipal Center about noise reduction walls proposed for 248th Avenue in Naperville, between 95th Street and 103rd Street. The results of an analysis by Civiltech Engineering showed which properties along that stretch would be most affected by traffic noise after improvements are made to 248th Avenue. That project involves widening the road to make two lanes in both directions and adding features such as curbs, streetlights and a landscaped median. The city will hold another meeting in September in which homeowners who qualify for the walls can vote on whether they want one or not. The city will be sending out a detailed invitation to those residents.

Cop On A Rooftop

Naperville police officers found themselves on a precarious perch this morning as they took part in “Cop on a Rooftop.” The campaign, held atop Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops, is meant to rally support and funds for the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois. This is the 19th anniversary of the “sweet” partnership with Dunkin’, which has raised more than $6.7 million in Illinois throughout the years for the cause. Dunkin’ guests who donated got a coupon for a free donut, with donations of $10 or more earning a travel mug and coupon for a free coffee.
