A couple of local road projects are underway.  Madison County Engineer Mark Gvillo tells The Big Z portions of New Poag Road between Illinois Route 3 and Illinois Route 111 are now closed as part of a patching, slope repair, and resurfacing project.

Once the first stage of repairs to New Poag Road are completed, Gvillo tells The Big Z the second stage will begin, resulting in the closure of New Poag Road from Illinois Route 3 to Old Alton Road.  Another project is underway on Illinois 255.  Both directions of traffic are going to be intermittently restricted between Illinois 140 to Seminary Road between 7am and 5:30pm now through July, if all goes according to plan.
