project overview

In 2014, the Southwest Conference of Mayors (SCM) completed a transportation, land use and economic development planning study for the Cicero Avenue Corridor. The ultimate goal of the study is to prepare a plan (the Cicero Avenue Corridor Plan) that strengthens the economic vitality of the communities, improves transportation function and mobility, and presents a cohesive and pleasant image for all users. The Plan is intended to complement and reinforce, not supersede, existing plans of each individual community.

The corridor runs along Cicero Avenue from 55th Street on the north to 127th Street in the south. It runs through the following municipalities: Chicago, Bedford Park, Burbank, Hometown, Oak Lawn and Alsip. Key destinations along the corridor include Midway Airport, Midway Hotel and Conference Center, Greater Southwest Industrial Corridor, Ford City Mall, Advocate Christ Hospital Campus, Route 12/20 Business District (Oak Lawn), as well as a variety of regional shopping centers spread throughout the Corridor.
