U.S. 67 to see lane closures for pavement repairs

More road construction in the area is kicking off very soon.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, a stretch of U.S. 67 about six miles south of Monmouth in Warren County will see lane closures as pavement repair work gets underway.

Work is getting underway Tuesday, June 28, and is expected to wrap up sometime in mid-August.

IDOT says lane closures are necessary for pavement repairs on the U.S. 67 bridge over Cedar Creek and will occur both during the day and at night. Cedar Creek runs just north of Roseville.

Motorists traveling through the area can expect delays and should allow for extra time for trips through the work zone. IDOT says motorists should consider the use of alternative routes when feasible to avoid the work zone.

Drivers that do travel through the area are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices, and stay alert for workers and equipment.

Over the next six years, IDOT is planning to improve more than 3,500 miles of highway and 9 million square feet of bridge deck as part of the Rebuild Illinois capital program, which is investing $33.2 billion into all modes of transportation.

Accomplishments through Year Two included approximately $5.2 billion of improvements statewide on 3,020 miles of highway, 270 bridges, and 428 additional safety improvements.
