Limits: North of IL176 to south of Winchester Rd in Mundelein
Description: Replacement of three large deteriorated culverts under Midlothian Rd. One location (between Magnolia Rd and Timber Pass) will require a road closure with detour using IL176 to US45 to Winchester Rd. The other two replacements will require daily lane closures using one lane traffic control.
A road closure will be necessary to complete the work on the north culvert: Local traffic will have access from Winchester Road south to Timber Pass and from Illinois Route 176 north to Keith Mione Park and Sports Complex, Fremont Public Library and Magnolia Road. The construction zone will be closed to all traffic.
DETOUR ROUTE: Winchester Road to US Route 45 to Illinois Route 176. View the detour map
