CN bridge work to start in spring

Updated: March 8, 2014 6:28AM



Work is scheduled to start in the spring on a long-awaited bridge on U.S. 30 in Lynwood over the Canadian National tracks, the Illinois Department of Transportation said Thursday.

That bridge — along with other accommodations such as noise barriers in other communities — were part of a 2008 agreement clearing the way for CN’s purchase of the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railroad.

IDOT said it expects the bridge to be substantially completed by fall 2016.
