The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that the northbound and southbound lanes of IL Rt 158 from Anglers Club Road near Millstadt to Atlanta Drive in Belleville will be restricted beginning Monday, August 26, 2019, weather permitting. Restrictions will be between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM. One lane will remain open at all times and flaggers will be utilized to move traffic through the work zone. These restrictions are needed to place a new bituminous surface treatment and work should be completed by the end of September.
Motorists should allow extra time for trips through this area. 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.
The contractor on this project is Microsurfacing Contractors of Bridgeton, Missouri.
