Irving Park Road Construction To Begin After Labor Day
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that bridge work on Illinois 19 (Irving Park Road) over Salt Creek in Wood Dale will require lane closures beginning, weather permitting, Tuesday, September 4. The project consists of a deck overlay and joint repairs to the existing structure.
In order to complete the work, lane closures will be necessary. From September 4 to early October, traffic in both directions will share the westbound lanes of Irving Park Road. From early October to the completion of the project at the end of November, traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes. Motorists should account for extra travel time through the area. Please pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, and obey all posted speed limits.
