The Illinois Department of Transportation patching and resurfacing project on Ogden Avenue (U.S. 34) in Lisle, Downers Grove, and Westmont will require daytime lane closures. The project limits are from Ivanhoe Avenue in Lisle to North Washington Street in Westmont. In order to complete the work, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, with left turn lanes being maintained between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The road will be fully open to traffic at the end of each day. Access to businesses will be maintained during construction. The project is expected to be complete by the end of October.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
Grinding should be starting next week from Venard Rd. to Washington St. This will take approximately a week to complete, and then patching will take place after that.
