Despite COVID-19, resurfacing of roads in Central Illinois continues. The Illinois Department of Transportation announced late last week, that resurfacing of Illinois Route 29 between Cardinal Hill Road in Rochester and Jett Road at Berry will begin on Monday.
At least one lane will be open in each direction during resurfacing. The resurfacing will be used to help preserve the road and make it smoother.
Expect delays and allow considerable extra time for trips taken through this area. IDOT urges motorists to pay attention to conditions and signs, obey posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices, and be on the lookout for workers and equipment.
The work is expected to take about a month. For more from IDOT visit gettingaroundillinois.com.
