IDOT Work on St. Charles' Main Street Bridge to Start After July 4

IDOT Work on St. Charles’ Main Street Bridge to Start After July 4

 The Illinois Department of Transportation is performing maintenance to the IL Route 64/Main Street Bridge over the Fox River in St. Charles. Work is anticipated to begin after July 4, 2018.

Main Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction between IL Route 31 and 2nd Avenue for the duration of the project, which is expected to last four to six weeks.  Pedestrian access on Main Street over the Fox River will remain open during this work, but will be limited to one side of the bridge. Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians.

Work will include bridge deck spot repairs, micro-milling of the surface, followed by a new thin surface overlay and a new protective coating for the sidewalk.

Please consider using one of the three other Fox River Bridge crossings in the community–Illinois Avenue Bridge, Prairie Street Bridge or Red Gate Road Bridge–during this work.
