Franklin Avenue Closure
The motoring public in the Leyden Township area is being informed that Franklin Avenue will be closed to traffic starting Monday, June 14 from Williams Drive to Wolf Road through August 2. Please watch for detour signs posted in the area. Local traffic will be able to enter the businesses. This is part of the new O’Hare ring road and toll road expansion project for I 490.
The closure will allow the Illinois Tollway to install a box culvert for Silver Creek at Franklin Avenue and ComEd to relocate numerous main line telephone poles.
