This week, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced a lane closure on IL 100 at Elsah Creek beginning on Monday, June 27, weather permitting. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in the eastbound direction.
According to IDOT, this closure is needed to perform bridge painting and it should be completed by mid-July.
Immediately following the completion of that work, another lane closure will begin on the same road at Chautauqua Creek. Traffic will again be reduced to one lane in the eastbound direction. This closure is also needed for bridge painting and should be completed by mid-August, according to IDOT.
Drivers are urged to reduce speed, be alert for changing conditions, obey all construction signage, and refrain from using mobile devices while approaching and traveling through the work zone.
The contractor on this project is Civil Coatings and Construction Inc., of Valparaiso, Ind.
