Bridge repairs along Illinois 1 begin May 20

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that repairs to the bridge that carries Illinois 1 over the North Fork in Vermilion County will begin Monday, May 20. 
 
The project involves patching and bridge deck repairs and will require lane closures, with twoway traffic maintained by flaggers. Work will be done between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and is expected to be complete by mid-September. 
 
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. 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.
