The construction of Veterans/VFW Drive will resume on Monday March 28th. In order to complete the new construction of five lanes, VFW Road will be closed to through traffic from Towerline Road to 14th Street. Property owners located in this section will have access to either Towerline or 14th Street depending on constructions staging.
It is anticipated that it will take several months before Veterans Drive will be reopened to through traffic as this is the final stage of construction. Once construction is complete the entire roadway will be opened for traffic.
Veterans Drive from Commercial to Towerline and from 14th Street to 5th Street will remain open to traffic. Veterans Drive from 5th Street to IL 29 will remain closed pending installation of the grade crossing with the railroad.
