Infrastructure Update: Illinois 84 in Colona to close Oct. 4

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that Illinois 84 in Colona will be closed at the BNSF Railway crossing from Monday, Oct. 4, through Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021. The crossing is located between Poppy Garden Road and US 6.

The closure will allow the BNSF Railway to remove and replace their at-grade crossing and repave the approaches. There will be a marked detour directing traffic to Poppy Garden Road, Green River Road and US 6.

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.
