The Caton Farm Road bridge that crosses the DuPage River in far western Will County is off limits to any vehicle over 18 tons.
The Illinois Department of Transportation issued the directive to the City of Joliet after determining the bridge’s ratings were insufficient to handle anything heavier than single-unit vehicles, school buses and panel trucks, the city announced in a press release issued Wednesday.
Signs have been posted at the bridge and there are notification signs posted
for eastbound traffic at Illinois 59 and Bronk Road and for westbound traffic at
Essington Road and the Interstate 55 West Frontage Road.
The city has received an IDOT grant to reconstruct the bridge, covering about 80 percent of the project’s engineering and construction costs, the release said. Reconstruction is to be done in 2015.
