MACHESNEY PARK - Roadwork on IL-173 will make it harder for some residents to get in and out of their neighborhood.
The village announced Monday that Mitchell Road is closed so crews can perform construction on the roadway, as well as remove trees on the north side of 173. Mitchell Road will be closed until mid-July.
The closure is part of the widening project for 173 from I-90 to N. Second Street. Detour routes have been established. The village suggests drivers use Anjali Way or Vaughndale Drive to access Mitchell Road.
