Highland Avenue Repairs

Full closure of the Highland Avenue Bridge over IL Rte 56 (Butterfield Road) will occur on Wednesday 7/6/16. Construction details can be found at


According to DuPage County, construction on Highland Avenue, including the two bridges over Route 56 and Interstate 88, will begin on June 15. The Highland Avenue Bridge over Route 56 was built in 1987. Since its original construction, no major repairs have been undertaken to the bridge deck. During this project, crews will replace bridge joints and perform concrete patching to address deficiencies and extend the service life of the bridge's riding surface.

Work will be completed in two stages.  Stage 1 is expected to take three to four weeks. During Stage 2, Highland Avenue over Route 56 will be closed after July 4 for approximately six weeks. Construction is expected to be completed by Labor Day weekend.

A detour map and more information are available on the DuPage County website.
