Construction project will close long stretch of Route 71

Posted by wlpo on November 2, 2016

With the busiest weekends of the year now in the books, here comes a major construction project that will affect traffic around Starved Rock State Park.

Starting Monday, Route 71 will be closed to traffic between Route 178 and Route 23. A detour will be posted using stretches of Route 178, Route 6 and Route 23. The construction work could last a month.

Route 71 will be open on weekends from 3 Friday afternoon until midnight Sunday. Also all homes, businesses, and Starved Rock State Park and Lodge will stay open and have full access from Route 178 during the construction.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
