IDOT plans work along St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to have intermittent lane restrictions along St. Clair Avenue from North 40th Street to North 47th Street in East St. Louis to allow for pump station improvements, the agency said.

Work is scheduled to begin on Friday and last through Nov. 23, weather permitting, IDOT said.

Traffic-control devices are planned to be used to assist motorists during the lane closures. IDOT advises motorists to look for “Road Construction Ahead” signs, be patient, reduce speed and use additional caution when traveling near and through the work zone.
