Construction to Begin on IL 34 in Harrisburg Monday

HARRISBURG – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced a construction project to begin Monday at 7 a.m., weather permitting, on Illinois 34 in Harrisburg.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers. The work on IL 34 will run from Old Illinois 13 (Poplar Street) to the levee just north of Reservoir Road in Harrisburg, according to officials.

The project includes pavement patching, hot mix asphalt removal, hot mix asphalt paving, pavement markings and the resurfacing of the parking lanes. The work is expected to last until Sept. 30.

Motorists are advised to obey flaggers, reduce speed, be alert for equipment and workers and use extreme caution while traveling through all work zones.

To avoid any delays, motorists should seek an alternate route. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zone as quickly as possible.
