ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
ILLINOIS PRAIRIE PATH - MAIN STEM (CH 47) AT CHASE STREET,
- The Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) is installing a
pedestrian underpass on the west side of Chase Street, Wheaton that includes a
temporary path runaround of the construction site. The UPRR will be installing
an additional side spur line between Washington Street and President Street and
the closure of the Chase Street crossing will enable commuter trains to stage
on the spur line upon completion of this work. With the completion and opening
of the underpass, the Chase Street roadway crossing pavement will be removed
and the area restored. The major structural construction has been completed
with the road removal and restoration of the railroad, Crescent Blvd. and
Prairie Path rights-of-way to be completed spring 2014.
If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact
Christopher Miller with the UPRR Chicago office at (312) 777-2043.
