Road Closure: Rose Drive East at the Roselle Metra Station


The Rose Drive East entrance to the Roselle Metra Station is closed until the end of November for a widening project. Rose Drive East will become a two-lane entrance and exit to the station as part of the Metro 19 Apartment development project. Commuters should follow posted detour signs for access to the Metra Station parking lots.

The Village Board voted in early 2021 to approve the $80 million transit oriented Metro 19 luxury apartment complex development, which will be located north of the Roselle Metra station at the southeast corner of Lawrence Avenue and Irving Park Road. The project area includes part of the existing Metra daily-fee parking lot, the former Ray Graham site, and some of the underutilized land near the BMO Harris Bank location on the corner. The development's 5-story parking garage will include 536 spaces, with 153 spaces dedicated permanently to Metra riders.

This type of development was specifically recommended in the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in 2016. Learn more abut it on the Metro 19 Apartment Development webpage.
