After a summer of dusty construction, the construction crews in the immediate Taste of Arlington Heights area are gone, and the Arlington Heights Public Works Department crews have cleaned up the streets better than ever. Two different asphalt crews finished their surface work this past week. One asphalt crew was a contractor for Nicor and another was a contractor for the sewer and water crews that completed their construction work in time for the annual Mane Event and the Taste of Arlington Heights events this weekend — Friday night, Saturday, and Saturday night.
Arlington Heights Public Works Department crews have spent several early morning shifts this week cleaning sand, dirt and dust from the streets. Some nearby streets, such as Sigwalt Street nearby, and Campbell Street to the west of Highland Avenue still require. The Taste of Arlington Heights streets are ready to serve delicious dinners Friday night and Saturday night.
The annual Mane Event and the Taste of Arlington Heights events are located at Vail Avenue and Campbell Street, on August 2 and 3, 2019.
The Mane Event will be held from 5 – 11 p.m. on Friday, August 2, 2019
