The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists traveling on IL 141 of upcoming BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION.
Beginning today, (Monday, September 30), there will be bridge construction to remove and replace the structure carrying IL 141 over a tributary to Cane Creek, 0.25 mile east of IL 1 that will require lane closures. Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by signals. Work is expected to last until summer of 2020. Motorists should be aware of the 10′ 6″ width restriction, reduce speed, be alert to equipment and workers and use extreme caution while traveling through all work zones.
To avoid any delays motorists should seek an alternate route. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zone as quickly as possible.
