DuPage County Road Construction to Limit Traffic on Kress Road in West Chicago

The DuPage County Division of Transportation will improve Kress Road in West Chicago this summer, which will reduce traffic to one lane during construction.

Beginning the week of June 28, Kress Road will only allow northbound traffic from the Union Pacific Rail Yard to Hawthorne Lane and from Hawthorne Lane to Powis Road. A short portion of Powis Road north of Hawthorne Lane will also be reduced to one lane. Southbound traffic will detour along North Avenue (Illinois Route 64), Neltnor Boulevard (Illinois Route 59), and Roosevelt Road (Illinois Route 38).

The scope of work will include improving the existing shoulders, repairing the bridge deck over the railroad, replacing culverts, and resurfacing the roadway. Construction is expected to last until October.
