NAPERVILLE, IL — Work will begin on Wednesday, June 1 on the South Washington Street Bridge. The bridge, which crosses the DuPage River, is located on Washington Street between Ring Road and Naper Boulevard. The purpose of the project is to add pedestrian sidewalks to both sides of the bridge and conduct infrastructure work to extend its usable life.

 

Work will be done in two stages. In the first stage, which begins on June 1, the southbound lanes of Washington Street will be closed between Ring Road and Naper Boulevard and the two northbound lanes will be reconfigured so two-way traffic is maintained at all times. This stage is expected to be complete in mid-August.

The second stage will begin immediately afterward and will see the closure of the northbound lanes of Washington Street with the two southbound lanes reconfigured for two-way traffic. Access to Weigand Park will be maintained at all times throughout the course of the project. Construction hours will be Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. with Saturday work done as necessary. All work and projected dates are weather dependent.

The bridge serves as a means by which residents in the immediate area can access commercial centers both in south Naperville and in Bolingbrook as well as Weigand Park. Currently, pedestrians and cyclists must cross the river by using the same lanes in which vehicles travel creating safety issues for all involved.

The majority of the work is expected to be complete and all lanes reopened to traffic by mid-November. Final clean up and cosmetic work could continue into December.
