The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Blackburn Road between Illinois 143 and 0.6 miles north of Illinois 143 will be intermittently restricted to one lane beginning Wednesday. This work will take place daily from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is necessary to construct a new asphalt overlay on this route. This work is expected to be completed by August of this year.
Delays are expected. The department advises motorists to follow construction signs and drive with caution through the work zones.
