IL 83/171 Cal Sag Channel Bridge Repair

Bridge Repairs on Archer Avenue over the Cal Sag Channel

CHICAGO - The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that the northbound lanes will be fully closed on the structure that carries Archer Avenue (Illinois 83/171) over the Cal Sag Channel, in Willow Springs, beginning, weather permitting, Wednesday, July 12. The closure is necessary for joint and steel repairs on the bridge.

In order to complete the work, the northbound lanes on the Archer Avenue bridge over the Cal Sag Channel will be fully closed to traffic. The detour takes northbound Illinois 83/171 traffic eastbound on IL 83/Cal-Sag Road, northbound on U.S. 45, and westbound on 107th Street to meet back with Illinois 83.

One lane on southbound Illinois 83/171 traffic will remain open, although, delays are expected at the intersection of 107th and IL 83-Cal Sag Road where the northbound detour merges back with Illinois 83.

The road will reopen for northbound traffic in mid-August, but daily lane closures may be necessary to complete remaining work. The overall project is expected to be completed by Fall 2017.

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.
