Road work being done on Illinois State Fairgrounds


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - Three main roads on the Illinois State Fairgrounds are being resurfaced.

Main Street from the Main Gate to Illinois Avenue, Central Avenue from Main Street to 8th Street, and Illinois Avenue from East of Main Street to the Northwest side of the Grandstand will all be milled and resurfaced before the start of this year's state fair.

Work started Monday, July 9. It is expected to take about a month.

The work is being funded through a $30 million appropriation that the Capital Development Board received as part of a Capital Bill aimed at making infrastructure upgrades and repairs on the state fairgrounds.
