The second phase of the reconstruction of the intersection of Routes 64 and 47 in Lily Lake begins Monday, weather permitting, with the opening of Route 64 to the east and the closing of Route 47 to the south.
The official Illinois Department of Transportation-listed detour for southbound Route 47 traffic is to take Route 64 to La Fox Road, then south on La Fox to Route 38. Cars could also take Anderson Road south from Route 64 to Route 38.
