The Village of Glenview

Who owns which Glenview road?


Several governments have jurisdiction

Roadways within Glenview, like those across the region, have taken a beating this winter. The frigid cold, along with almost 70 inches of snow, has helped speed up the deterioration of area roadways, with the usual spring freeze-and-thaw cycles yet to come.

That means potholes, and lots of them.

The Glenview Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining 158 miles of roadways within Glenview. That means plowing off snow and ice, sweeping, filling cracks and paving. Crews have been filling potholes with cold patch while temperatures are below or near freezing. Once asphalt plants open in the spring, more permanent "hot" patches can be applied.

The public can report potholes to the Village through our "Service Request" page.

But not all roadways within Glenview are maintained by the Village. The Cook County Highway Department and the Illinois Department of Transportation have jurisdiction over many major arterials. Consult the chart below to find which government is responsible for which street.
