The Southwest Conference of Mayors (SCM) is leading a project to develop a transportation and economic development plan for the Harlem Avenue Corridor. The project goal is to develop a comprehensive corridor plan that unites the corridor, its activities and character to make it a more highly-functioning transportation corridor and activity center for the southwest suburbs. This planning project is designed to complement, not supersede, the existing plans of corridor communities.The project area runs along Harlem Avenue from 63rd Street on the north to I-80 on the south. It runs through the following communities: Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Burbank, Chicago Ridge, Oak Lawn, Orland Park, Palos Heights, Palos Hills, Tinley Park, and Worth, as well as a portion of the Forest Preserve of Cook County.
- The Southwest Conference of Mayors concluded the planning project in November 2011.
- Project documents are available on the “Project Details” page.
- A presentation of the Study is planned for the SCM Expo in February 2012.
