Best Road will be closed to traffic at various locations starting on Monday September 18, 2023, for roadway pipe culvert replacements between IL Route 75 and the main entrance to Lake Summerset. The culvert work is expected to be completed by September 26, 2023, when the road will be back open to traffic.

That same section of Best Road will then be widened and resurfaced beginning on October 2, 2023, with an estimated completion date of October 20, 2023. However, the duration of all of the work is dependent on the weather. Please use alternate routes and expect delays. Please drive with extreme caution in and around construction zones.
