The Village of Timberlane would like to advise residents that Orth Road between Caledonia Road and IL Rte 76 will be closed indefinitely.
Recent structural damage has been found on the large, eastern bridge nearest IL 76 and until the Illinois Department of Transportation determines the next course of action they have ordered that the bridge be closed.
This closure order will remain in full force until such time that the bridge is determined to be safe, repaired or reconstructed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
This action has been ordered by IDOT in the interest of the motoring public's safety.
