Major road resurfacing project beginning in Decatur

DECATUR - Decatur motorists should plan for travel delays at Lake Shore Drive and 22nd Street between Eldorado Street and the U.S. 51 Bridge, as a major roadway improvement project is set to begin.

Nearly four miles of this heavily-traveled roadway will be resurfaced by the Illinois Department of Transportation during this project.  Traffic signals in various locations will be improved as well.  Additionally, the city of Decatur will partner with IDOT to fund work that would improve approaches to the roadway leading into neighborhoods.

Motorists traveling in this area should slow down and use caution.  The city is also recommending that motorists seek alternate routes, if possible.
