Route 64 bridge work to begin Monday

SYCAMORE – Commuters crossing the bridge on Route 64 near the Sycamore Golf Course should expect some changes starting Monday.

Joe Wick, area supervisor for Illinois Department of Transportation, said flaggers would begin traffic control Monday and lane closures are scheduled to start April 9 as work is done on the bridge over the Kishwaukee River. The east entrance to the Sycamore Park District will close Monday.

Wick said once the heavy work begins on the bridge April 9, the structure will be split down the middle one half at a time and temporary signals would be used to control traffic flow both directions.

The $1.3 million project is expected to last into the fall and will expand the single-span bridge to a three-span bridge, Wick said. The project is funded by the state, which selected Romeoville contractor Herlihy Mid-Continent Construction to complete the project.

Dan Gibble, executive director for Sycamore Park District, said he did not think the construction would hinder park traffic too much, but those going to the golf course or pool would need to take a less direct route through the west entrance.

The west entrance is marked with the double stone column and cannon.

“They’ve been very good about keeping us informed,” Gibble said of the state. “We haven’t been given an exact completion date, but it’s probably going to take all summer.”
