Construction Work Affecting Commuters and Lincoln Avenue


Metra has informed the Village they will be repairing the grade crossing at Lincoln Avenue nearest the train station in September. Metra will close the crossing to traffic while the repairs are in progress and they will install a detour to guide traffic around the closure. The detour route will be along Lincoln Avenue (Old Mill Road), Dempster Street, and Ferris Avenue.

This work is currently scheduled for September 23 through October 2. Metra will install advanced warning signs along Dempster Street to notify the motoring public about this work several days before the crossing is closed.
