Route 38 - The marked detour route for local drivers traveling eastbound on State Street will be turning south on Seventh Street, east on Fulton Street, south on Third Street, south on Route 31, east on Fabyan Parkway and north on Route 25. Westbound traffic will utilize the same route in reverse.

Route 31 - The marked detour route for local drivers heading southbound on Route 31 in St. Charles will be turning west on Roosevelt Street, south on Third Street (St. Charles)/Anderson Boulevard (Geneva), east on State Street, south on Seventh Street, east on Fulton Street, and south on Third Street.
