Star Road Closure Update

The Whiteside County Highway Department issued a public service announcement regarding a closing of Star Road (on the east edge of the City of Prophetstown, IL) beginning at Lyndon Road on the west and extending east for approximately ¼ mile.

Star Road, beginning at Lyndon Road on the west and extending east (approximately ¼ mile), will be closed to all traffic until further notice.  This closure is necessary for bridge reconstruction and has been in effect since August 16, 2010.  Weather conditions do not allow for portions of the remaining roadway approach work to be completed and the closure may possibly remain in effect until spring.  

Motorists are reminded to use the marked detour of Yorktown, Mill and Lyndon Roads which bypass this closure.  

For additional information concerning the closure, please contact the Whiteside County Highway Department at (815) 772-7651.


The annual assessor’s meeting will be held in the Emergency Operations Center, Room 117, located on the ground floor of the Whiteside County Courthouse, at Morrison, Illinois on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 1:00 PM  

This meeting is open to the public.
