Dunlap Road Construction Info

Status

We’ve had a lot of questions about the upcoming roadwork in town. Here are the details (from the Village of Dunlap Website). Construction WILL NOT impair access to the library.

 

IDOT UPDATE (MAY 8, 2014):  The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that beginning Tuesday, May 13th Legion Hall Road in Dunlap will be closed between Cedar Hills Drive and the entrance to Dunlap High School.  This closure is necessary for crews to install a culvert crossing and storm sewer, and is expected to be in place for approximately two weeks. The school entrance will remain accessible from IL 91 during this time.  The overall project includes IL 91 from south of Legion Hall Road to north of Hickory Street and will require traffic shifts and lane closures on IL 91 and the closure of Legion Hall Road in stages for pavement replacement and the installation of retaining walls, sidewalk, pipe culverts, and storm sewer. Access to residences and businesses along IL 91 will be maintained during construction.  Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.

IDOT UPDATE (APRIL 21, 2014)The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that work to widen and resurface IL 91 through Dunlap will begin this week.  No lane closures are expected as part of the work this week. Crews will be working on fence removal and water main installation.  The overall project includes IL 91 from south of Legion Hall Road to north of Hickory Street and will require traffic shifts and lane closures on IL 91 and the closure of Legion Hall Road in stages for pavement replacement and the installation of retaining walls, sidewalk, pipe culverts, and storm sewer. Access to residences and businesses along IL 91 will be maintained during construction.  This project is expected to be completed in 2015. Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
