The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced more summer roadwork for the area.   The lane restrictions starting today will take place on southbound Illinois Route 3 between Poag Road and Industrial Drive in order to remove and replace the pavement.   The work should be completed by August 3, weather permitting.

There will also be a brief lane closure today on I-270 at the east end of the eastbound lanes of the Chain of Rocks Bridge today from 10am to noon in order to conduct a repair.  IDOT reminds motorists to slow down in all work zones, especially where workers are present, and remember the lower work zone speed limits are in effect even when there is no work taking place.
