IDOT work repairing bridges along Illinois 40 will begin Monday, March 25.
The work is on these three bridges:
• Illinois 40 over Camp Street and Farm Creek;
• Illinois 40 over Washington Street; and
• Washington Street over Farm Creek.
Ramp closures are expected and marked detours will be in place. Additionally, there will repairs to the median on Washington Street just south of River Road, which will require lane closures.
Ongoing bridge reconstruction at the U.S. 24/150/Illinois 116 interchange will have additional traffic control beginning Monday, March 25. Lane closures on east- and westbound U.S.24/150 will begin Monday, March 25, and last through the duration of the project. The ramp from westbound Illinois 116 to eastbound U.S. 24 will be closed Tuesday, March 26. A marked detour will be posted.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered.
