Streetscape beautification improvements included incorporating a custom illuminated Elmwood Park gateway sign with a three tiered fountain feature, large ornamental planters with custom inlayed columns, and a raised limestone planter. Additionally, an Elmwood Park medallion monument and a decorative pedestrian light pole were constructed to further enhance the intersections. Burke, LLC Design/Build provided conceptual design, public input process, GMP contract delivery, and design and construction management services. The intersections were upgraded to comply with current ADA standards. Improvements also included removal and replacement of sidewalk, installation of colored stamped concrete, and installation of ornamental planters, trees, and decorative lighting. Along the south side of Grand Avenue the parking lane in front of the proposed McDonalds location was removed and the sidewalk was widened to incorporate stone seating wall planters.
