Thu, 31 May 2018 10:49:47 CDT
Due to road construction that will begin on Monday, the Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that Route 16 between Hillsboro and Nokomis will be closed a half mile northeast of Irving.
The project consists of a bridge replacement as well as improvements to shoulders, guardrails and pavement and will require a complete closure of the road. It will be closed for 25 days, with work expected to be completed by Friday, July 13, weather permitting.
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.
Area construction details may be found on IDOT's traveler information map on the website, gettingaroundillinois.com.
