MACHESNEY PARK - As crews widen 173, access to a major road will be cut off.

The Illinois Dept. of Transportation announced they'll close off Forest Hills at 173 heading north on Monday, July 21.  It's expected to be closed for four days to replace a large box culvert beneath the street.

Traffic will be detoured to IL-251.

It's all part of a $28 million project to widen 173 from Alpine Road to the I-39/90 interchange.
