Lane Closures on Milwaukee Ave To Begin 5/20/19

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that a culvert replacement and other drainage improvements to Milwaukee Avenue (Illinois 21) at Corporate Woods Parkway, in Vernon Hills, will require permanent lane closures beginning, weather permitting, May 20.

In order to complete the project, traffic on Milwaukee Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction approaching the work zone. The work is expected to be complete by the end of September.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
