ROAD CLOSURES

Monday, June 24-29

EFFINGHAM – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced the replacement of two box culverts on U.S. 45 that will take place just north of Persimmon Drive (600N) and just south of Hickory Hills Lane (700N). Work begins Monday, June 24.

To complete the box culvert replacements, only local traffic will be permitted on U.S. 45 between Flora and Louisville. The removal of a box culvert requires its replacement to be installed prior to the removal of the other box culvert. Only one closure will occur at a time. A detour utilizing U.S. 50, Xenia/Iola Road and Kinmundy Road will be posted. The replacement will provide motorists with a safer and smoother driving surface. Work is expected to be completed by June 29.

Motorists are encouraged to follow the posted detour or will need to find an alternate route.

Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
