Road reconstruction work begins today on Route 3 through Wood River and Hartford.  The Illinois Department of Transportation says the pavement rehabilitation work will result in some lane closures during the course of the project, which is expected to last until next summer.  The work will be on Route 3 from Highway 143 in Wood River to Pontoon Road in Granite City.  

Drivers are urged to use alternate routes, especially during the daytime hours, since delays are expected.  Otherwise, give yourself extra time to travel through the work zone.  You can follow the progress of the project through this link
