IDOT to resurface Illinois 159 in Edwardsville

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to intermittently restrict Illinois 159 to one lane between Troy Road and Magnolia Street beginning on Sunday, weather permitting.

Workers are scheduled to construct a thin asphalt surface on the roadway. This work is planned to take place nightly from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., IDOT said.

The project is expected to be completed by July.

IDOT said motorists would need to be patient, reduce speed, obey all warning signs and use additional caution when traveling near and throughout this work zone.
