This weekend from 7 pm on Friday, June 2 to 5 am on Monday, June 5, South Hough Street (Route 59) will be COMPLETELY CLOSED in both directions between Russell & Coolidge Streets.

Traffic will have local access only between Hillside & Main Streets. An IDOT Detour Route will be in effect, which is shown above. The detour runs east along Hillside Avenue to Route 14, then north to Main Street and east on Main back to Hough Street (Route 59) in town.

Please note that this detour route does not include altered traffic signal timings, which could result in significant delays along this route. Please consider using alternate routes to avoid this area over the weekend.

Notifications have been distributed to residents along Hough and Hillside directly affected by this closure and detour. If you have any questions please contact the Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project Hotline at 847-620-4650 or
