Temporary road detours announced

From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Route 52 at Route 47 will be closed and traffic will be detoured in Kendall County due to expected heavy traffic congestion and safety concerns for the Illinois Freedom Run.

At about 8:30 a.m., westbound traffic on Route 52 will be directed north on Route 47 to Newark Road, west to Route 71 south to return back to Route 52, according to a news release from the Kendall County Sheriff's Office.

Southbound Route 47 traffic will be directed east on Route 52 to Ashley Road, south to Granville Road, west back to Route 47.

Signage will be posted and Kendall County deputies will be in the area. This is only temporary and should not be for more than four hours. The roadway will be re-opened when the traffic congestion dissipates and traffic safety issues are resolved.
