Metra Construction on LaPorte Road Rail Crossing

Last Updated: July 22, 2015

Metra is repairing the railroad crossing on LaPorte Road west of Wolf Road and east of Front Street, and has temporarily closed the crossing to vehicular traffic.

The crossing will be closed through Friday, July 31.  Detour signs are posted.

Please note the following:

  • If you are headed east on Francis Road, follow the detour northeast on Front Street and south on Wolf Road to connect to eastbound LaPorte Road.
  • If you are headed west on LaPorte Road, follow the detour north on Wolf Road and southwest on Front Street to connect to westbound Francis Road.

Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding during Metra's work on this crossing.

Front Street Metra Station Rehabilitation

Last Updated: July 9, 2015

Work on the Front Street Metra station is expected to continue for approximately two more months.  Rehabilitation efforts include leveling a dip in the platform and replacing the tactile (caution) strip on the south side. Work is ongoing to extend the south platform to the west.

For your safety, please do not walk through roped-off areas, and allow additional time to reach your boarding platform.

We apologize for any inconveniences as Metra makes these necessary station improvements.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has completed the resurfacing project on LaGrange Road from just north of Birch Avenue in Mokena to Colorado Avenue in Frankfort. A few punch-list items may need attention through July 31, but will not result in major traffic disruption.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this project.
