North Avenue to Close for Railroad Crossing Improvements

Antioch, IL - The railroad crossing on North Avenue will be closed starting at 7 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 23 for necessary crossing improvements.

The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT), Village of Antioch, Illinois Commerce Commission, and the Canadian National Railroad have been in close coordination to address concerns after the railroad tracks at this location were repaired earlier this year. The project will improve the roadway's ride quality, drainage system, and sidewalk that will match the modified railroad crossing. 

The railroad crossing is scheduled to reopen to through traffic during the late afternoon on Wednesday, Nov. 22, weather permitting.

DETOUR ROUTE: IL 83, to IL 173, to Deep Lake Road. Local traffic will be allowed from IL 83 to the railroad crossing and from Deep Lake Road west to the railroad crossing. The railroad crossing will be closed to all traffic.
