Sheridan Road closure in Beach Park
The Illinois Department of Transportation will be doing a culvert replacement project on Sheridan Road (Illinois 137) over Bull Creak, in Beach Park. The project is scheduled to begin, weather permitting, on Monday, February 12.
The project will require closing Sheridan Road between Wadsworth Road and Oak Forest Drive. A detour will direct motorists to Illinois 173 (21st Street), Green Bay Road (Illinois 131) and York House Road. A special truck detour will use Illinois 173 and Skokie Highway (U.S. 41) to meet back with Illinois 137. Access to residences and businesses within the construction limits will be maintained throughout construction.
The $7.8 million project, which involves replacing the existing culvert with a triple box culvert, installing new storm sewers and ADA-compliant sidewalks and ramps on both sides of Sheridan Road, is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.
