Welcome to the Stickney Township Highway Department
We Do Highways…
The Stickney Township Highway Department is responsible for the upkeep of the roads and highways in the unincorporated portions of the Township. We fill the potholes and provide minor pavement repairs.
And So Much More…
We Light Your Way
The Highway Department maintains and repairs the street lights in all of the unincorporated areas (alley lights however belong to and are maintained by ComEd) of the Township.
We Make Our Streets Safer for Pedestrians and Children
The Highway Department is responsible for all safety and crosswalk markings outside of the villages. We make it safer to cross the streets.
We Point the Way
Street signs are fabricated and installed by the Highway Department.
We Clear Your Streets
When the winds and storms come, the Highway Department clears the branches and cuts up the fallen trees. We provide a weekly curbside branch pick-up service from April 15 to November 1. We sweep the streets during the warmer months and plow the snow and salt them in the winter. In addition, we insure that the storm sewers are clear of debris to prevent flooding in your neighborhood.
But wait, there’s more…
Senior Bus Service
Door-to-door mini bus service is provided by the Highway Department and is available for township residents 60 years of age or older, or under 60 and disabled. This program provides access to medical clinics, doctor's offices, shopping, congregate meal sites when available and other destinations. We typically provide 1,300 trips per month.
The buses are lift-equipped. Passengers who are unable to get to and from the bus will require an escort.
A mini-bus pass is needed to ride the bus and each person may ride the bus on weekdays, round-trip to one destination, five times per week. This service is available on weekdays only. MEDICAL TRIPS ARE TOP PRIORITY. All reservations must be made at least before noon the day before you need the ride but cna be made up to two weeks in advance.
You can receive your mini-bus pass at one of the Offices on Aging located in any of the three township senior offices. Proof of age and/or disability and residency are required. After you receive your mini-bus pass, you may make a reservation to ride the bus by calling the dispatcher at (708) 424-9221.
For several months during the start of the pandemic, the Highway Department staff delivered additional meals to seniors in need through a grant program funded through the Stickney Township Office On Aging.
