Route 25 Closure in St. Charles Extended Two Weeks

IDOT expects to reopen highway just south of Fox Glen Drive on Aug. 27, after completion of the Norton Creek culvert repairs.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said Thursday that Route 25 just south of Fox Glen Drive will continue to be closed for two more weeks while repairs continue to a culvert at Norton Creek.

The road is anticipated to reopen Aug. 27. The extension accommodates an increased scope of work for the repairs. Motorists should use alternate routes or follow the posted detour route during the closure.

Helen: You say you "lived here most of your life," and yet you oppose a major improvement to our community. You sound like those people who cry for the days when the Arcada had vaudeville, and candy was a penny. Tough luck, things change - and this bridge is a welcome addition. Quit your whining; progress won, obstructionists lost.

Rich, I don't think she said that. I know for a fact Helen was born and raised in St. Charles. And just how "major an improvement" is this bridge? And, just how are you profiting from this major improvement Rich?

I'm not whining, I'm just stating my opinion. You, however, do sound like you're whining: "You Wayne people think you're waaaay to good for the rest of us, but you lost this fight. Live with it. And, again, if you don't like crossing the river, stay where you are. We can do fine without you." Whah, whah, whaaaahhhh! You sound like you're about five years old. Grow up and deal with the fact that you are not always right and that not everyone is always going to agree with you. You like the bridge -- good for you. I don't. And a lot of other people don't. And it has nothing to do with longing for the old days.

OK, I get it -- this is a contentious, divisive issue that obviously is a sore spot on both sides. It is interesting -- as bridges often are. If I remember correctly, there was a fair amount of contention about the Stearns Road Bridge as well -- not to mention some UFO videos.

You're right, Ted, the bridge issue always opens a really big can of worms no doubt about that!
