175th Street section closing in Tinley Park

Updated: September 22, 2014 12:35PM



175th Street between LaGrange Road and 94th Avenue in Tinley Park will be closed as of Friday for about a month because of work on the LaGrange Road widening project, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced.

IDOT said the closing is necessary for the reconstruction of the 175th Street intersection at LaGrange Road. It said drivers should follow the posted detour signs on 94th Avenue, 179th Street and LaGrange Road.

Motorists still will be able to access all businesses along 175th Street, according to IDOT, and the two-block segment is expected to reopen in mid-September.

IDOT reminded drivers to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the LaGrange Road work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
