The Illinois Department of Transportation announces Wednesday that weather permitting, construction work on the next phase of I-39/Creston Road project will begin on Tuesday April 30, 2019.
This phase will require the complete closure of Creston Road in order to facilitate work on the bridge structural repair items. The closure of Creston Road is expected to remain in place until August 15, 2019.
Motorists can expect major 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.
