Work is scheduled to begin Friday, and run through Sept. 30, weather permitting, IDOT said. Restrictions are scheduled to be in place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day during the project.
Flaggers are planned along the route to direct traffic through the closure while reduced to one lane. The lane closure is necessary to allow Ameren Illinois to install a natural gas line. Significant traffic delays are anticipated and IDOT encouraged motorists to consider alternate routes.
