IDOT announces road work

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that weather permitting, construction work at the intersection of US 30 and IL 251 in Lee County will begin on Monday, May 13, 2019. O’Brien Civil Works, Inc. will be starting the $119,000 contract to remove and replace the culvert under the south leg of the intersection. 

Daytime lane closures with flaggers will be utilized to maintain access in all directions for the approximately two weeks required to complete the work. 

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. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
