Rep. DeLuca Provides Update on Chicago Heights DMV Closure (Chicago Heights, IL) – In late May 2020, the Chicago Heights DMV was closed indefinitely due to damage from a fire. It is believed that the widespread rioting, looting, and civil unrest that occurred at that time was the cause of the fire.
Today, Rep. Anthony DeLuca, (D-Chicago Heights) issues a statement via his Facebook page stating, “I’ve been in regular communication with the Secretary of States Office to ensure the Chicago Heights Department of Motor Vehicle location reopens. The latest update is as follows:
“‘Construction should begin sometime next week or soon after once the building materials are received by the contractors. Once the reconstructions begin, we are looking at a possible three to four-month project for completion.’ I will continue to monitor the status and work to prevent any further unnecessary delays. Thank you and have a good day!”
The closure of the Chicago Heights DMV came in the middle of the global COVID pandemic, which rendered several closures of DMV offices, other government buildings, restaurants, offices, and more.
