Metra will be performing a railroad grade crossing renewal project at the York Road grade crossing as part of their 2016 Construction Program. These repairs are necessary to upgrade and reconstruct the crossing at York Road with new concrete platforms and approaches. The work is scheduled to begin on Thursday June 23rd and extend through Saturday July 2nd.
Due to the nature of the repairs and the ongoing IDOT Construction Project at York Road and Irving Park Road, the closure will extend from Green Street to Irving Park Road. This will have a major impact on traffic travelling north and south through the Village of Bensenville. An extensive truck detour will be in place utilizing Irving Park Road, IL Route 83, Grand Avenue and County Line Road. Non truck traffic will be detoured via Addison Street between Green Street and Irving Park Road.
Village Staff will be working with Metra officials throughout the project in hopes of keeping traffic moving during this much needed repair.
