The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that extended ramp closures will take place at Grand Avenue (Illinois 132) and Skokie Highway (U.S. 41) in Gurnee, beginning Tuesday, May 29th, weather permitting. The ramp closures are necessary to allow for the widening of Grand Avenue and related ramp improvements, part of the ongoing project on Grand Avenue between Estes Street and Magnolia Avenue.
Starting May 29th, the ramp from Grand Avenue to northbound Skokie Highway will be closed, as well as the ramp for southbound Skokie Highway to Grand Avenue. A posted detour will direct traffic to use N. Riverside Drive (Illinois 21).
The ramps are expected to reopen by Monday, August 6th. Traffic on Grand Avenue will remain one lane in each direction between Estes Street and Magnolia Avenue.
