59 Closed Monday

The Union Pacific railroad crossing on Route 59 near Catlow Court in Barrington will be closed to traffic from August 23 to September 1.

A busy section of Route 59 in Barrington will be closed in both directions for over a week starting Monday so crews can repair a railroad crossing.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced the closure will take place on Route 59, also known as Hough Street, north of County Line Road (Main Street).

IDOT said repairs to the Union Pacific Railroad crossing will require a full closure of the southbound and northbound lanes.

Route 59 will be closed from Catlow Court to Franklin Street during the project, which officials said is for “crossing improvements.”

A detour will direct motorists to County Line Road, Hart Road and Northwest Highway (Route 14).

The work is expected to be completed, weather permitting, by 9 a.m. on September 1.

This closure will impact both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. A signed detour route will be in place during this closure.
