Wolf’s Crossing Road Reconfiguration Begins Week of April 3

Improvements will provide motorists with direct access to 95th Street

The first phase of a multi-phase project designed to realign Wolf’s Crossing Road by connecting its two sections currently separated by 95th Street and 248th Avenue is scheduled to begin the week of April 3, pending weather or unforeseen circumstances.

During the first six weeks of the project, crews will extend Wolf’s Crossing Road south from where it currently dead ends at 95th Street to east of the CN Railroad line. Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. No road closures will take place.

Upon completion of this extension, a three-day closure of Wolf’s Crossing Road between the CN Railroad line and 248th Avenue will occur to construct a temporary connection between the new north/south section and the existing east-west section of the roadway. This closure is estimated to occur in mid-May. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists to use alternative routes such as Heggs Road, Haffenrichter Road or 111th Street. A map of the road closure and detour will be available at www.naperville.il.us/wolfscrossing. Upon completion of the temporary connection, traffic will begin using the new configuration and the section of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the new connection east to 248th Avenue will be closed permanently.

The final stage of the project will occur in late 2017 or 2018 and will include the reconstruction of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the point of the temporary connection to the CN Railroad line. This phase will require a multi-week shut down of Wolf’s Crossing Road from the CN Railroad line to 95th Street.

Later this summer, crews will also begin work to extend Trumpet Avenue to the new configuration of Wolf’s Crossing upon completion of the final phase. As part of the Ashwood Crossing development, scheduled for construction in summer 2017, Trumpet will be extended west so that it intersects Wolf’s Crossing Road.
