Route 47 Detour for Railroad Grade Crossing Widening Next Weekend

The detour route.

People who take Route 47 into McHenry County are going to have problems getting home as early as they usually do on Friday night.

And getting to work on Monday morning will be a hassle, too.

There certainly will be a need to allow more time to get to the Tollway that morning.

The Route 47 railroad grade crossing at night.

The railroad grade crossing is being re-configured and that means a detour.

Here’s the notice from the Village of Huntley:

Traffic Advisory:Rt 47 will be closed at the railroad crossing from Friday October 8th at 2:00pm to Monday October 11

The Union Pacific Railroad will CLOSE Route 47 in Huntley at the railroad crossing to all traffic on Friday October 8th at 2:00 PM and will reopen Route 47 by 12:00 PM on Monday October 11th. Northbound and southbound Route 47 traffic will be detoured around the Route 47 rail crossing.  Expect delays.
