   Lane Closures and Detour Scheduled This Weekend on Arlington Heights Road in Itasca for Bridge Work

Lane closures planned for bridge beam installation as part of new IL-390 Tollway construction

Lane closures including a posted detour will be scheduled this weekend on Arlington Heights Road and Thorndale Avenue in Itasca for bridge beam installation as part of construction of new IL-390 Tollway over Arlington Heights Road.

Beam installation for the new IL-390 Tollway will be done during the weekend to minimize the impact on traffic. The roadway closure is necessary to provide a work zone that safely accommodates the construction of the bridge. Electronic message signs will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to the closures and the posted detour.

Weather permitting, on Saturday, January 21, Arlington Heights Road at Thorndale Avenue is scheduled to close from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. for bridge beam placement. A detour will be posted directing traffic to use Prospect Avenue, Ketter Drive, Pierce Road and Hamilton Lakes Drive to access Arlington Heights Road.
