Crestwood, IL – The Village of Crestwood will experience a significant closure on the 127th Street Bridge starting from March 4, 2024, through December 2024. 

This announcement, made by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), details that the closure is necessary for the re-strengthening of the bridge, with work being carried out from both the top and underneath on a barge. During this period, traffic will be rerouted, and local authorities urge residents and commuters to plan their travel accordingly and use alternative routes.

The Village of Crestwood also emphasizes the importance of supporting local businesses during the bridge’s closure. Residents are encouraged to make an extra effort to patronize the businesses affected by the construction. Community solidarity is vital to ensure that these businesses remain operational throughout the disruption. 

Detailed detour routes will be provided to facilitate the movement around the village, and community members are advised to follow these routes to minimize congestion and support a smooth transition during the bridge strengthening project.
