Take Note! Midlothian Road Closure Postponed
Due to utility company conflicts, the detour that was originally scheduled to begin on Midlothian Road between Winchester Road and IL 176 on Wednesday, July 15, has been postponed. A new detour start date will be provided when an updated schedule is available.
The contractor will continue work on the project to replace two of the culverts under daytime, one-lane traffic using flaggers and signs. Once the utility conflict is resolved, the largest culvert between Timber Pass and Magnolia Road will be rescheduled for replacement under a full road closure with a detour.
