Buffalo Rock State Park will not close Monday, will be later day

Works soon will build a retaining wall

The Illinois Department of Transportation initially released Buffalo Rock State Park in La Salle County will be closing next week to construct a retaining wall.

That date has been moved to a later time, officials said.

The retaining wall will be built on the road leading into Buffalo Rock State Park and its parking lot along Dee Bennett Road. The closure is required to accommodate the required equipment. Additional short-term closures will likely be required as the project progresses. Work on the retaining wall is expected to be completed late fall.
