IDOT: Find new driving route during construction

Posted: Updated:

HARRISTOWN, Ill. (WAND) – Drivers will have to find another route when bridges close for construction.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says crews will be removing and replacing bridge decks on U.S. 36 roads that are over U.S. 51 in the Harristown area. Those bridges will not be open while work is in progress.

Construction is scheduled to take place from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2.

IDOT says a detour will be marked to help drivers find their way around construction. The department is still asking people to find a different route during that time if they can.
