IDOT to resurface Illinois 156 west of New Athens

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to have lane restrictions along Illinois 156 between Illinois 159 and Illinois 13 west of New Athens beginning on Monday, weather permitting.

The lane reductions are needed to complete pavement repairs and resurfacing, IDOT said.

Flaggers will be utilized to move traffic through the work zone. Work on the project is expected to be completed by the spring of 2016.
