The construction on Illinois Route 29 will be starting back up again in June. Construction had been delayed due to the recent string of rainy weather that central Illinois has experienced the last few weeks. Mike Bell, co-chairman of a highway expansion project on Illinois Route 29 told Regional Radio News explained why the wet weather has caused the construction delays on the highway.
Bell said how even with the construction delays, those drivers who use Illinois Route 29 can still expect the highway to be open by the end of the summer.
Bell did warn that there is always the potential for construction to end up taking longer than expected, but he personally does not see that happening, and expects the project to be completed by the end of the summer.
