IDOT to resume ramp work on I-72

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that ramp work along I-72 at the U.S. 51 and IL 48 interchanges will take place over the next four weeks.

Officials say the work to resurface the interchanges will begin on July 26, will take place during evening hours beginning at 9:00 p.m., and that the work will cause the temporary closure of interchanges that are being worked on.  However, officials add that only one interchange will be closed on any given night.  The ramps will be opened by 6:00 p.m. the following morning.

IDOT officials are reminding motorists to slow down and use caution in these areas, and to take an alternate route if possible.  For more information about this project, call (217) 877-3640.
