Construction to begin on 173, 251 in Machesney Park
Online Staff Report
MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. — The Village of Machesney Park is advising motorists of two areas that will be under construction in June.
The north side of the intersection of Illinois Route 173 and North Frontage Road/Orlando Drive will be closed beginning Monday, June 4. The closure is necessary for construction crews to construct the north half of the intersection at Illinois 173 and North Frontage Road. A detour will be in place up North Alpine Road to Gateway Circle, allowing access to businesses along North Frontage Road. The closure will be in place until about June 18.
The village has also announced that the inside lane of Illinois Route 251/North Second Street will be closed in the area of the former Machesney Park Mall (now Machesney Town Center) beginning May 31. The closure is necessary for construction crews to construct a new, fully signalized intersection with Illinois 251, midway between Copper Drive and Roosevelt Road. Construction will include new turn lanes, signals and drainage improvements to facilitate future development and growth of the new Town Center. The closure will be in place for about a month.
