Starting the week of May 7, 2018, West County Line Road will be closed to traffic between Beith Road and Winters Road near the Village of Maple Park in order to safely and efficiently replace the existing bridge. The project is anticipated to be complete by the end of August 2018, weather permitting.
The project will consist of removal and replacement the existing bridge structure and constructing new wing walls; earth excavation and embankment grading; constructing a new bituminous shoulders and pavement and restoration and landscaping.
All bicyclists and pedestrians are advised to avoid using the area during construction for the safety of both the workers and the residents. A posted detour route will direct traffic around the closure using Thatcher Road, Beith Road, Meredith Road, and IL Route 64. The public is advised to safely adhere to the speed limit while following the posted detour route around the project and to expect increased travel times.
