OREGON – Weather permitting, a detour will start Wednesday for northbound traffic on state Route 2 from Grand Detour to Oregon that will last until autumn.
Drivers can go west on Broad Street in Grand Detour to Green Street (Ridge Road), continue north on Ridge Road to Pines Road, and east to Route 2 on Oregon’s south edge.
Southbound traffic can still travel from Oregon to Grand Detour.
Milling and repaving operations started in March on a 10-mile section of Route 2. The work is the latest phase of a $6 million project, which includes repairing the Grand Detour bridge over the Rock River and four other bridges.
