STATELINE (WIFR) -- Several bridges on I-90 in Boone and McHenry counties are scheduled to close in March for construction. They're expected to be completed in the fall.

According to a press release, the Town Hall Road, Pearl Street, Shattuck Road, County Line Road and Harmony-Riley Road bridges are scheduled to close in March. Two of those bridges -- Town Hall Road and Pearl Street -- are expected to close next week.

Except for the Shattuck Road and County Line Road bridges, detour routes will be posted. For more information, go to the "Projects by Roadway" section in the Construction/Planning section at illinoistollway.com.

These five bridges are among 11 to be removed and reconstructed along I-90 this year. The Johnson Road bridge is also scheduled to close this spring.

Full closure of some of these bridges are necessary because the structures over I-90 are too narrow for traffic to go through during construction.

The locations and detours for each bridge closure are:

Boone County
- Town Hall Road: The detour will direct traffic to use Graham Road, Stone Quarry Road and U.S. Route 20 in both directions. Up to 550 vehicles use this route daily.
- Pearl Street: The detour will direct traffic to use U.S. Route 20, Stone Quarry Road and Bates Road in both directions. Up to 3,250 vehicles use this route daily.
- Johnson Road: Bridge closure with detour details will be scheduled later this spring. Up to 100 vehicles use this route daily.
- Shattuck Road: Bridge closure but no detour posted. Up to 300 vehicles use this route daily.

McHenry County
- Harmony-Riley Road: The detour will direct traffic to use State Street, U.S. Route 20, Garden Prairie Road and Crawford Road in both directions. Up to 1,700 vehicles use this route daily.
- County Line Road: Bridge closure but no detour posted. Up to 275 vehicles use this route daily.
