Bridge work to close Lively Boulevard in Wood Dale

SHARE Bridge work to close Lively Boulevard in Wood Dale

A road in northwest suburban Wood Dale will be closed for four days for bridge construction starting Thursday.

Lively Boulevard south of Thorndale Avenue will be closed to traffic as crews work to install beams for a new bridge to carry Illinois Route 390 traffic over Lively, according to a statement from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

A detour will divert traffic to Richert Road and Central Avenue to access Lively, IDOT said. The closure will affect the estimated 3,400 vehicles that use the closed portion of Lively every day.

The road is expected to reopen Monday, according to IDOT.
