Oswego residents can expect more traffic delays in the village starting Tuesday, Aug. 5.

Construction to install new railroad crossing signals and controls will begin at the crossing at Route 34 and North Adams Street, and will last two to three weeks, according to an announcement from the Oswego Police.

The contractor will work for eight days, take six days off and return for eight more days to complete the project, police said. Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Lane closures are expected during construction, but only one lane each way at a maximum will be closed when needed.

This project is funded by the Federal Rail Highway Safety Program and administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Funds are made available for local rail crossing improvements based on daily traffic counts.
