November 28, 2018 GMT

HINCKLEY – The Perry Road corridor between Hinckley and the DeKalb County line is finally open, more than two days after the county was blanketed with nearly a foot of snow.

The 3-mile-plus stretch was closed midday Monday, because a power line came down along the shoulder of Perry Road.

Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan said the stretch is vital to local residents.

“It’s definitely a thoroughfare,” he said.

ComEd was likely overwhelmed Sullivan said, given the number of incidents it responded to Monday.
