Jericho Road Will Be Closed at Blackberry Creek Until Fall

Road with traffic cones

Bridge replacement work will close Jericho Road just west of Orchard Road near the village of Montgomery from May 4 until this fall.

Starting the week of May 4, 2015, Jericho Road will be closed to traffic at Blackberry Creek, between Orchard Road and Bertram Road, weather permitting. Crews will replace the bridge structure, and project improvements include bridge removal and replacement, water main relocation, drainage improvements, excavation, roadway reconstruction and resurfacing.

A posted detour route will direct traffic around the closure using Orchard Road, IL Route 30 and IL Route 47. Local traffic only will be permitted within the road closure and access to Stuart Sports Complex will remain open and accessible only from the west. The public is advised to follow the posted detour route around the project and to expect increased travel times.

Questions or concerns may be directed to Ken Mielke, Project Manager, at (630) 406-7172. For all traffic advisories, see KDOT Traffic Alerts.
