Main Street – Traffic Stage Change

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that beginning this Thursday, July 21, 2016 (weather permitting) a traffic stage change will occur on Main Street (Illinois 31) over the Edgewood Ravine, south of Illinois 62, in Algonquin.

The work is part of an ongoing project to make safety improvements and repairs to the bridge that carries Main Street over the Edgewood Ravine.

In the next stage of construction, traffic on Main Street will be reduced to one lane with a temporary traffic signal directing traffic to pass in alternating directions. A full closure will take place on Beach drive with a posted detour to use Edgewood Road.

The overall project is expected to be completed in Summer 2016.
