Resurfacing on Garden Plain Road between Fenton Road and IL-84 near Morrison to begin August 31

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that weather permitting, construction work will begin on Monday, August 31, 2020, on Garden Plain Road between Fenton Road and IL 84 near Morrison. Valley Construction Co. will be starting the $1.4 million project to complete cold-in-place recycling along with hot mix asphalt overlay on the existing roadway section. Traffic will be reduced to one lane utilizing flaggers for the expected two-month duration of the project.

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.
