Andy Limberg of the Winnebago County Highway Department says that Gleasman Road will be closed to traffic between Rockton Ave and IL Route 2 (North Main) to allow for a box culvert replacement. Work is scheduled to start March 20, 2023, and is anticipated to be completed by June 30, 2023. Motorists will need to use alternate routes.

As we previously reported, the total project involves two box culverts which were to be replaced east and west of Illinois 2 on Gleasman Road. In October and November 2022, the first box culvert was replaced adjacent to the railroad elevated bridge near the Prairie Ridge subdivision east of Old River Road and the Atwood Homestead Forest Preserve.

In March 2022, County Engineer Carlos Molina told us that the total cost for both culvert replacements was estimated to be $980,000. The Federal share would be $784,000 and the Winnebago County share would be $196,000.
