Road Work To Be Conducted On Illinois Route 128 North Of Shelbyville

IDOT will be closing Illinois 128 north of Shelbyville starting today for road construction.  The closure is needed to replace two box culverts along Illinois 128. There will be posted detour signs that will take vehicles through Windsor and Sullivan. 


No traffic will be allowed between 1800 N and ½ mile south of 1950 N during the repairs. They will allow local traffic but motorists are asked to allow for plenty of extra time to get to where you need to go and follow all detour signs. The Illinois Department of Transportation is asking all drivers to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in work zones, obey all speed limit signs, and do not use mobile devices while you’re driving.


Through the Rebuild Illinois plan, IDOT is planning on improving more than 3,300 miles of highway and 8.4 million square feet of bridge deck over the next six years. The Rebuild Illinois Plan has invested $33.2 billion into all transportation with nearly $2.7 billion put into improvements in the first year with 1,706 miles of highway, 128 bridges, and 228 safety improvements completed. 


The work on Route 128 is expected to be completed by the end of August. For more updates, visit www.gettingaroundillinois.com. You can also visit their twitter site at IDOTDistrict7.
