Summer work closes bridge over Route 83

IDOT closed the Chicago Avenue bridge over Route 83 May 21 for deck repairs.

The general scope of work includes bridge repairs, joint repair, overlay and incidental and collateral work necessary to complete the project.

The project may also require lane reductions on Route 83 to complete the necessary work on the underside of the bridge. IDOT has indicated the detour route will be Ogden Avenue and the detour for through traffic will be posted for Madison Street in Hinsdale and Cass Avenue. IDOT’s anticipated project completion date is July 17.
