Paving Resuming on Butterfield Road
The Illinois Department of Transportation informed the City of Wheaton that later this week, its crews intend to pave the portion of Butterfield Road (Route 56) that is under construction in Wheaton. This work is expected to take approximately one week and will require some lane closures. Look for electronic signs with more information. You may want to consider another route once work is underway to avoid delays. Thank you for your patience.
