Just when you thought traffic along Route 59 through Naperville couldn't get any worse, now comes word that the major highway will be reduced to one lane northbound during daytime hours through November.
The lane reduction is at Brookdale Road, which is south of the "Ronnie," or Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway, formerly known as the East-West Tollway, a.k.a, I-88.
The silver lining is that when the project is finished, Route 59 will actually be wider at that point and include a right-turn lane for a new shopping center.
In the meantime, if you travel Route 59 northbound during the day, how bad is the congestion? Are you going out of your way to avoid 59 because of the work?
