Update from the SSA #16 – Extended Security Program & Construction Update
Important neighborhood updates from the SSA #16 and Greektown Chicago…
Safety and security are our top priority. The SSA #16 commissioners recently voted to extend the security program through January. This program, in conjunction with AGB Investigative Services, Inc., provides uniformed armed security guards in and around the neighborhood. This extension continues the 24 hours of weekly security coverage, and aims to ensure the safety of patrons and residents.
Neighborhood construction of the Jane Byrne Interchange Reconstruction Project is scheduled to continue. The information below regarding closures and detours will help you avoid construction headaches:
