The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that improvements to the Northwest Highway (U.S. 14) bridge, over the Fox River, in Cary and Fox River Grove, will begin, weather permitting, Monday, March 22.
To accommodate the work, Northwest Highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Ebert Drive to Opatrny Drive. In addition, left turns from southeast bound Northwest Highway onto River Road and to 215 Northwest Highway (The Arlington Club) will not be allowed. Motorists should follow the posted detour.
The project, which consists of deck and joint repairs and the installation of a new deck overlay, is expected to be completed in late September.
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.
River traffic is expected to remain uninterrupted.
