The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that, weather permitting, sidewalk construction along Illinois 136 (14th Avenue) in Fulton in Whiteside County will begin on Monday, September 12th. The work zone will be from Fourth Street to Illinois 84.
The work will require lane closures that will be controlled by flaggers during the project. Inroadway work is expected to be completed by November 13th.
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.
