UPDATE: The planned reopening of Cromwell and Arrowhead drives along Route 56 has been pushed back to next week, city engineering officials said Thursday morning.
Utility issues related to those intersections were discovered late Wednesday, which caused the delay. Officials now expect to open Cromwell and Arrowhead next week.
Officials anticipate the reopening of Cromwell and Arrowhead drives at Route 56 on Thursday, as the Butterfield Road Project continues to move forward.
But, with those openings, a new closure will begin. Orchard Road at Route 56 will be shut down for up to two weeks. Electronic road signs have been posted to alert drivers to the closure.
All of this is associated with the large-scale Butterfield Road reconstruction and widening project run by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Officials encourage drivers to continue to use caution in and around the Butterfield construction zones, and to follow rules regarding cell phone use and worker safety.
