IDOT to resurface Old Alton Road

The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to have intermittent lane restrictions on Old Alton Road south of Wood River in order to resurface the road, the agency said.

Beginning Monday, Old Alton Road between New Poag Road and West Chain of Rocks Road is scheduled to be intermittently restricted to one lane, weather permitting, IDOT said.

Work is scheduled to take place daily between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and includes constructing an oil and chip coating on the route, the agency said. The project is expected to be completed by the middle of July.

Delays are expected, IDOT said.
