CRYSTAL LAKE – Traffic at Route 14 and Lakeshore Drive will be condensed throughout most of Wednesday, as Crystal Lake public works crews make improvements to a sewer main.

Motorists should expect slower traffic around the intersection from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Traffic along Route 14 at Lakeshore Drive will be limited to one lane in both directions. Motorists wanting to access Lakeshore Drive will be detoured one block south to Dole Avenue.

The northbound lane along Route 14 also will be reduced to one lane at Pine Street. Motorists will be detoured east on Crystal Lake Avenue, then south on Oriole Trail to access Pine Street..

Motorists are encouraged to be cautious while crews work on the main along Route 14.
