*UPDATE - January 2nd*


Effective Monday, January 7th, Mid Court Drive from Anita Drive to High Point Circle South will be closed to all through traffic from the north for a period of approximately 3-4 weeks.


Updates will be made as they become available. We thank you for you patience and apologize for any inconvenience during this time.





Bourbonnais will begin the $10 Million sewer project.  The Village of Bourbonnais will begin construction of the most expensive project in village history, as it prepares for the new Interstate 57 interchange and a 1,200-acre business and industrial park at Bourbonnais Parkway.

The board unanimously accepted a $10.1 million contract with Kankakee Valley Construction Company Inc. to complete the first phase of a six-mile sewer system. Kankakee Valley Construction will complete the first 4 miles, which will run from the Perry Farm area through town to St. George Road.

Construction begins this summer (June) with the project expected to be completed by next year. The second phase of the project, which village officials believe will cost about $1.5 million, will connect to the interceptor at St. George Road and run to Bourbonnais Parkway.

"We are looking at the new interchange being complete by summer of 2018," Mayor Paul Schore said. "We want to things in place and utilities ready to go for future businesses and industries to come in."
