Major Construction Project Underway In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on July 15, 2013

Let the headache begin in Ottawa.

Illinois Railway workers are rebuilding a crossing on Route 23 and Fremont Street in Ottawa.  The project will last a week and will close Route 23 to traffic near Jefferson School just north of Route 6.

The official detour from the Illinois Department of Transportation takes northbound traffic to Route 6 then to Route 71 and onto Interstate 80.  The southbound detour will take traffic onto Interstate 80 to Route 71 onto Route 6 and then back onto Route 23.

Ottawa Police plan to help with traffic control at the Route 6 and 23 intersection south of the railroad crossing.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
