The Illinois Department of Transportation cautions motorists that U.S. Route 45 at the interchange with Interstate 57 northeast of Neoga will be intermittingly closed during the daytime hours for approximately two months beginning Monday, October 22, 2012.

The structure carrying Interstate 57 over U.S. Route 45 will be repaired by replacing damaged
bridge beams supporting the structure. In order to ensure the safety of motorists, the highway
will be closed during various operations throughout the beam replacement procedures.

A marked detour will be in place, utilizing U.S. Route 40, Montrose Blacktop and IL Route 121
to guide motorists around the closed section of U.S. Route 45.
