PALOS PARK, Ill. (STMW) – Illinois Route 83 in Palos Park is closed from LaGrange Road to Southwest Highway because of a ruptured jet fuel line, and it may remain closed until Wednesday as major repairs are made, Palos Park Village Manager Rick Boehm said.

Traffic was being diverted to 119th Street.

The Calumet Sag Channel also was closed, because fuel drained into the channel, Boehm said.
