The Illinois Prairie Path is closed to bike traffic between Cross Street and West Street along Liberty Drive as crews continue with construction associated with the Downtown Streetscape Plan. This closure is expected to last approximately a few weeks.
Detour signs are posted directing Illinois Prairie Path bike traffic to use Cross Street or West Street.
For westbound traffic, the detour route is:
- Southbound Cross Street, to westbound Willow Avenue, to northbound West Street
For eastbound traffic, the detour route is:
- Southbound West Street, to eastbound Willow Avenue, to northbound Cross Street
See the map here for the detour route to get around the closure. Bicyclists riding through the detour area should use caution and remember to adhere to vehicle traffic laws including obeying traffic signs and signals while also riding in the same direction as vehicular traffic. We appreciate your patience as we work to make improvements to Wheaton's downtown.
