Lane closures will begin Monday on Route 47 south of Huntley as work ramps up on the full interchange there with I-90.
One lane in both directions on 47 between Oak Creek and Freeman Road will close from 9:30 am to 3 pm Monday for construction of temporary pavement. One northbound lane between Manning Road and Big Timber Road and Manning Road will also close. On that stretch, all traffic will route in the southbound lane and a flagger will valve it through.
Just to make things interesting, NICOR is in the midts of replacing the gas main in front of Sun City along 47 again, too. Put it all together and Huntley officials advised caution and the expectation of long delays on 47, especially during rush hours.
