Water Main Break Causing Route 83 Slowdown in Elmhurst

Two of three northbound lanes are closed and will likely reopen Wednesday evening

A water main break shut down two lanes of Route 83 in west suburban Elmhurst on Wednesday afternoon.

Crews shut down two of three northbound lanes on Route 83 just north of North Avenue to make emergency repairs, an Elmhurst city spokesman said in an email.

The lanes will likely be closed until sometime this evening, he said. Drivers should use caution in the area and take alternate routes if possible.
