People who use the Lincoln Trail on the east side of Taylorville should start planning more time in their commutes. IDOT will be closing Lincoln Trail to replace a culvert just east of Woodbine Street. The closure starts this coming Monday, June 19th.
Taylorville Ward Four Alderman and Street and Sewer Committee Chairman Earl Walters says along with the road closure, some local utilities are trying to get work done before IDOT takes over the reigns.
Walters says IDOT believes the closure will last for a month, but he believes it could be done a bit sooner as well.
Walters says as a detour into Taylorville, motorists should use Roosevelt Road to Kennedy Road to Illinois Route 29.
