The Illinois Department of Transportation recently announced that resurfacing of Des Plaines River Road from Foster Avenue, in Schiller Park, to First Avenue (Illinois 171), in River Grove, passing through Franklin Park, will require daytime lane closures beginning, weather permitting, April 13th.
The project, which consists of resurfacing the 4.4 mile stretch of Des Plaines River Road, constructing new shoulders and ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps, replacing deteriorated curbs and drainage improvements, is expected to be completed in November.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are
urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits
and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
