After a full 812 days, the bridge on Hortense Street in Kirkland has reopened. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) closed the bridge more than two years ago after noticing some holes in the upper deck. That action set in motion a litany of agencies and procedures to be followed including engineering firms, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), DeKalb County government and others, to determine what needed to happen next.
Once it was determined that the bridge only needed the deck replaced, the Village of Kirkland was able to work with the County to get 80/20 financing to repair the bridge. The funding was made up with 20% or 160,000.00 coming from the village’ motor fuel tax fund, and the remainder coming from the county’s road and bridge fund. The Hortense Street bridge reopened on Friday, November 9th with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Representative Pritchard, the mayor of Kirkland, Les Bellah, Village Clerk Terri D’Amato and others.
