 OVERNIGHT CLOSURES SCHEDULED ON ROBERTS ROAD AND 87TH STREET FOR CENTRAL TRI STATE TOLLWAY BRIDGE RECONSTRUCTION WORK

 

Overnight Road Closures will begin week of July 26

 

Overnight road closures with detours will be scheduled on Roberts Road and 87th Street during the next two weeks to accommodate mainline bridge beam placement on the central Tri State Tollway Project.  Overnight lane closures will also be scheduled on northbound I-294 during this time to complete the work.

 

The temporary closures are necessary to safely accommodate the placement of bridge beams on I-294 over Roberts Road and 87th Street.  Bridge beam placement will be scheduled during overnight hours to minimize the impact on local road traffic.

 

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be in place in advance to alert drivers to each of the overnight closures.  Up-to-date closure information will be posted on the Tollway (www.illinoistollway.com) website in the Daily Construction Alert.  All work is weather dependent.

 

On 87th Street under I-294, three nights of full roadway closures will be scheduled during the week of July 26.  The closures will begin at 9:00pm each night with the roadway reopening by 5:00am the following morning.  During the roadway closures, a posted detour will route traffic via 88th Avenue/Cork Avenue, 95th Street and Harlem Avenue.

 

Once work at 87th Street is complete, three nights of roadway closures on Roberts Road under I-294 will be scheduled.  During the Roadway closures, a posted detour will route traffic via 95th Street, 88th Avenue/Cork Avenue and 79th Street.  The Closures will begin at 9:00pm each night with the roadway reopening by 5:00am the following morning.

 

To accommodate bridge replacement work, traffic is currently reduced in both directions on Roberts Road and 87th Street.  Traffic will remain in this configuration through 2022 for bridge work.
