Road work ahead in Yorkville: Mill Road to close for widening, realignment project

Kennedy, Galena and Orchard roads designated as detour route; work to start June 24

Yorkville is set to close Mill Road on the city’s northeast side starting Thursday, June 24 for a widening project.

Improvements to Mill Road will include widening, realignment and installation of a shared use path and storm drainage improvement, the city said in a press release.

The roadway will be closed from Kennedy Road to Allegiance Crossing, just east of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks. A detour route will use Kennedy Road, Galena Road and Orchard Road.

Construction is expected to last through mid-November.
