The Indian Trail Bridges over the Fox River are scheduled to close on March 2nd, 2015.  The Gregory Island Park will also be closed during that time.  The Contractor's primary focus will be on the reconstruction of the west bridge over the Fox River, as the east bridge has been substantially completed.  The current schedule includes re-opening the bridges some time in late September/October of 2015.  Traffic is advised to use Illinois Ave. and Sullivan Rd. as alternative routes.
