A major track resurfacing project at La Grange Road has been announced by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad. The La Grange Road railroad crossing will be fully closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the work.
The closure is scheduled to begin on Friday, September 26, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. and conclude on or before Friday, October 3, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.
The posted detour route for southbound traffic on La Grange Road is to proceed eastbound on Ogden Avenue, to southbound IL 171 to southbound 1st Avenue, westbound on Joliet Road to westbound 55th Street, back to La Grange Road. The posted detour route for northbound traffic on La Grange Road is to proceed eastbound on 55th Street to eastbound Joliet Road, to northbound IL 171, to westbound Ogden Avenue back to La Grange Road.
Commuters and pedestrians will be directed west to Ashland Avenue which is the next closest at-grade railroad crossing.
This notification is important to La Grange residents and businesses as it will have an impact on local and regional traffic. Please make adjustments to your travel schedule to compensate for the railroad crossing construction activities and obey all construction signage. Your cooperation is appreciated during this resurfacing project.
Please note that all schedules and work progress are weather dependent.
