U.S. 150 Patching began Sept. 19

GALESBURG – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that pavement patching

on U.S. 150 from Allens Avenue to Grand Avenue and Main Street to Michigan Avenue in

Galesburg began Sept. 19.

The project also includes curb repairs and will require intermittent lane closures. Work is

expected to be complete by October.

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.

Over the next six years, IDOT is planning to improve more than 2,500 miles of highway and

nearly 10 million square feet of bridge deck as part of the Rebuild Illinois capital program, which

is investing $33.2 billion into all modes of transportation. Accomplishments through Year Three

of Rebuild Illinois included approximately $8.6 billion of improvements statewide on 4,422

miles of highway, 412 bridges, and 621 additional safety improvements.
