Traffic delays at Belleville roundabout construction site

News-DemocratMay 13, 2013 

Traffic is snarled at the site of the roundabout construction on Illinois 158.

Due to demolition work Monday morning flaggers are restricting traffic to one lane under the Illinois 15 overpass.

All motorists were being forced over the rough shoulder on the west side of the road to pass by heavy equipment. During the morning rush, traffic was held up for 10-15 minutes waiting to pass through the bottleneck.
