The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists traveling on US 45 south of Illinois 14 of upcoming LANE REDUCTIONS.
Beginning Monday, March 15, 2021, weather permitting, there will be road construction work on US 45 that will require lane closures. Work includes 8.2 miles of patching, milling, and resurfacing along US 45 from IL 14 to IL 1. The contractor will also be working on sidewalks in Norris City. Motorists should reduce speed, be alert to equipment and workers, and use extreme caution when traveling through this area. Work is expected to last several months.
To avoid any delays, motorists should seek an alternate route. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work Zone as quickly as possible.
