This is Mayor Dan McLaughlin with an important message from the Village of Orland Park.

As you know, this was an historic snow event and snow is expected to continue through this afternoon followed by high winds blowing snow and severely dropping temperatures.

Despite some roads being cleared, some roads may not be passable and travel remains dangerous throughout the area.

Please stay off the streets, if at all possible.

Many roads continue to be challenging for plows to keep clear due to drifting snow from high winds.

Will-Cook Road, south of 159th Street, remains closed but should be clear this afternoon.

108th Avenue, from 167th Street to 179th Street, remains closed as well as 104th Avenue from 159th Street to 179th Street.

Village emergency operations will continue for the next several days.

Keeping main roads open and passable is our first priority.

Please remove all parked cars from village streets so that plows can continue to clear the snow.

And, as always, please call 9-1-1 for any emergency.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
