The Illinois Department of Transportation would like to alert motorists traveling northbound on Interstate 57 south of Mount Vernon of an upcoming lane reduction.
Beginning Monday, September 16, weather permitting, northbound I-57 will be reduced to one lane near milepost 91 to facilitate bridge repair work. The work is expected to last 6 weeks. Motorists should reduce speed, be alert to equipment and workers and use extreme caution when traveling through this area.
To avoid any delays motorists should seek an alternate route. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zone as quickly as possible.
