NORTH AURORA – Motorists should be aware of two construction projects in North Aurora that will begin soon.
The first road construction project is on Oak Street and will begin Tuesday, weather permitting. Oak Street will be closed to all traffic between White Oak Drive and Hidden Creek Lane for about two weeks.
Access to White Oak Drive will be available from Orchard Road only, and access to Hidden Creek Lane will be available from Randall Road only.
Detour signs will be posted to guide traffic around the project area.
The second road construction project is on Mitchell Road and is set to begin in the next two weeks. As part of the completion of an existing office and industrial development project, Liberty Development will be required to reconstruct Mitchell Road from south of Stewart Avenue to just north of the Interstate 88 bridge.
Mitchell Road will be closed to all traffic during this construction project. The road construction project is estimated to last about seven weeks, weather permitting. Detour signs will be posted to guide traffic to detours around the project area.
