Road work on Illinois 105/U.S. Route 51 begins this week

DECATUR - Illinois Department of Transportation officials have announced that work on Illinois 105/U.S. Route 51 Business over Lake Decatur will begin on March 26.

Officials say the project will replace the structures that carry Illinois 105/U.S. Route 51 over the lake, and that construction is expected to last throughout the next two construction seasons.  Officials also say a crossover will be used to detour traffic in order to maintain traffic flow, and that one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times during construction.

Motorists who travel through this area are asked to slow down and use extreme caution while work is being completed.  Motorists are also encouraged to consider using alternate routes
