Highway Department
Road Closures

In order to reconstruct and maintain DeKalb County roads and bridges, it often becomes necessary to close sections of roads.


Depending upon the work being performed this may be simply for a short period of a day or may extend for months.


The Department will make every attempt to keep the general public, schools, postal service and emergency services aware of the closures that are for extended periods of time, either through this web site and/or news media.


For short term closures, it may not be possible to so inform the public, however, during maintenance operations, when crews are working on the roads...flagmen will be utilized for safety purposes.


The County Highway Department asks that the traveling public obey the flagmen, signs and barricades placed for such purposes.


Current Road Closures:
  • The DeKalb County Engineer has announced that Rich Road, approximately .75 miles east of Glidden Road and 1.1 miles west of N. 1st Street in DeKalb Townships is tentatively scheduled to be closed to all traffic beginning Monday, November 13, 2017 through November 17th for the replacement of a cross road culvert. Staggered barricades will be placed at Sangamon and Glidden Roads. Any questions or concerns can be addressed to the County Engineer at 1826 Barber Greene Road, DeKalb, IL 60115 or by calling (815) 756-9513 or email
