Illinois Department of Transportation officials ask motorists to be patient, reduce speed and use caution when traveling in work zones.
COLLINSVILLE – The Illinois Department of Transportation on Monday announced the planned installation of a new safety crash attenuator along Interstate 270 East near its interchange with Illinois Route 203.
The majority of work items will be completed from the shoulder of the highway to limit disruption to the motoring public. However, the width of the exit ramp will be reduced to provide ample work space. Weather permitting, these efforts will begin on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 from 7:30 a.m. and should be completed by 3 p.m.
The Illinois Department of Transportation’s Wood River Operations Yard and John Thomas, Inc. of Dixon, Ill., will collaborate to implement this safety upgrade.
