What Is the Village Doing About Elgin O’Hare Construction?
While the Elgin O’Hare expansion is not a Village project, it has been involved as much as possible in its planning, development and construction. We appreciate the Tollway listening to our feedback and taking our input under advisement. As a result of our participation, the Village of Bensenville has had significant influence in the design of the Elgin O’Hare, as well as in the day to day activities related to its construction.
