Two sections of Prairie Path to close temporarily

Updated: April 7, 2013 6:32PM

Two sections of the Illinois Prairie Path in the Chicago suburbs will be closed beginning Monday, to accommodate utility work.

The Aurora Branch, between Ferry and Diehl roads, and the Batavia Spur, between the Aurora Branch and Eola Road, will be closed to all traffic while NICOR maintains and upgrades its gas delivery system located in its right-of-way running along the north side of Interstate 88. Both the Aurora Branch and the Batavia Spur are anticipated to be closed until October.

A detour will be provided to take trail users of the Aurora Branch and Batavia Spur along Eola and Ferry roads to avoid the utility work and continue along the open sections of both trails. Signs will be placed on the trails to indicate closed sections and available detour routes.
