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.
