Section of Route 59 will be closed June THIS WEEKEND for culvert installation

Illinois Route 59 will be temporarily closed in both directions near the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad underpass to accommodate work that is occurring to install a box culvert in conjunction with the Route 59 Expansion Project. Closed 9PM Friday, all weekend; reopens early Monday. Detours will be provided; motorists should expect delays Contractors from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) expect to close the area beginning at 9PM Friday, June 13, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. The section of road will be closed throughout the weekend, and the road is expected to be reopened by the morning of Monday, June 16. A detour will be posted directing all motorists to use Ogden Avenue via North Aurora Road and Aurora Avenue. Local traffic will be permitted on Route 59 between Glacier Park Avenue and Aurora Avenue. Patrons visiting the businesses located on the east side of Route 59 between the viaduct and North Aurora Road will need to utilize the access point on  North Aurora Road. The closure is occurring to accommodate the installation of a new box culvert that carries Waubansee Creek under Illinois Route 59 near the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad underpass. Installation of the box culvert has begun and was intended to be completed within the current traffic control configuration. However, unforeseen conditions were encountered that will require the full road closure to complete the installation in an expedited manner.

Calling all Gardeners……

Join me for my Annual Plant Exchange and expand your garden!

Friday, May 9th – 4:00PM to 6:00PM 912 Manchester Street

Here’s how it works:

1. Divide and bring any plant(s) from your garden that you would like to share (your neighbors will do the same)

2. “Shop” from your neighbors’ selection and expand your garden for free

3. The number of plants that you bring determines the number of plants that you leave with – bring as many as you’d like

4. If you do not have an established garden, come anyway and learn what thrives in our area and gain valuable gardening insight

Light refreshments will be served and good company sure to be had!

Please RSVP to Tammy @ 357-8616 or by Thursday, May 8th
