The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that improvements to Neil Street from Edgebrook Drive south of Interstate 74 to Anthony Drive will begin Sept. 5.
At least one lane will remain open in each direction during the project duration, and the work will be performed at night on weekdays. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November, weather permitting.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changing conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, restrain from using mobile devices, and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
