Essington Road over the Rock Run Creek (between Ingalls Avenue and Theodore Street) will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction for a bridge replacement project starting Friday, May 1. The pedestrian sidewalk will also be restricted to one side only during construction. It is anticipated that the project will be completed in late 2020.
Traffic control will be in place for the duration of the project. Drivers should be prepared for delays and are reminded to slow down and use extreme caution when driving in the vicinity of the work zone, obey the posted speed limit and signage, and watch for workers, flaggers or pedestrians.
Questions about the Essington Road Bridge Replacement Project should be directed to the Joliet Department of Public Works at (815) 724-4210.
