A section of Nelson Road is down to one lane Friday afternoon, due to flooding between the CN train tracks and Illinois Highway. 

Traffic is restricted to one lane as of 4:15 p.m., but the road will be entirely closed to traffic following the evening commute, according to a notice on the village website.  

The road could be closed earlier, should temperatures drop and the water turn to ice.

Check back with the village for any updates.
