The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has notified the Oak Brook Police Department of their intent to hold a demonstration in support of the campaign to increase the minimum wage of “quick service” restaurant employees to $15 per hour. The demonstrations are scheduled to occur on Wednesday May 24th.  We are anticipating the closure of Jorie Blvd to provide for the safety of those participating in the demonstrations.

Wednesday, May 24th (times are estimates based upon circumstances):

  • Demonstrators to march and protest on N/B Jorie Blvd between Forest Gate to Kensington.
  • 6:00 AM-11:00 AM: N/B Jorie Blvd closed from Forest Gate to Kensington.
  • Intermittent closures of S/B Jorie Blvd is also anticipated.
  • The demonstrators are expected to clear the area by approximately 11:00 AM.

Please understand that these road closures could change based on the actions of the demonstrators.
