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. The underpass is open to users,
the Chase Street roadway crossing pavement has been removed and restoration of
the area continues. The project will be completed by Fall 2014 with additional
plantings installed as soon as weather permits such.
If you have
any questions regarding this project, please contact Christopher Miller with
the UPRR Chicago office at (312) 777-2043.
