[ARCHIVED] St. Charles Road Bridge Weight Limit

City of Elmhurst Logo

A new weight limit has been applied to the St. Charles Road Bridge, just west of Route 83. This bridge has been under the jurisdiction of the Village of Villa Park since 1979. The new weight limit, with a maximum of 15 tons, does not restrict ambulances from using the bridge; however, it does impact garbage trucks, fire trucks, school buses, PACE buses, and other large vehicles. 

The City of Elmhurst and the Village of Villa Park Fire Departments have developed an emergency response plan which includes fire apparatus from Villa Park responding to Elmhurst residents who live west of IL-Route 83. It is a priority for our residents to receive the same emergency service. 

Villa Park has approved a temporary fix that will allow for the same traffic pattern. The City of Elmhurst is reaching out to State and Federal officials to help Villa Park access funds for the replacement of the bridge. 

The following letter has been sent to Elmhurst residents who live west of Route 83.

Please contact City Hall with any questions at 630.530.3050.
