Larry Power Road overpass to be demolished

Bourbonnais, IL - Beginning Monday, April 20, 2020, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will begin demolition of the existing Larry Power Road overpass as part of the replacement project over Interstate-57. As a result, I-57 will undergo four nightly closures from 7:00 p.m. - 5:30 a.m. with anticipated conclusion on Friday, April 24, 2020 at 5:30 a.m. Motorists will be detoured via the following routes:

  • All northbound traffic on I-57 will be directed off at the 315 exit in Bradley, routed north along IL-50 to Bourbonnais Parkway and back onto I-57 at exit 318.
  • All southbound traffic will be directed off at the 318 exit in Bourbonnais, proceed east on Bourbonnais Parkway and routed south on IL-50 to the exit 315 on ramp. 

Please anticipate a significant traffic impact on our communities during that time. Please use caution in the construction areas, and pay close attention to the signage along the detour routes.

The Village of Bourbonnais thanks you for your patience. We will provide updates as available from IDOT.
