IDOT announced the right lane of westbound Route 116 will be CLOSED near Route 26 in Tazewell County, Wednesday, February 26th. The lane closure is necessary to place light poles along the side of Route 116. It will be in effect from no earlier than 8:30am through the rest of the day. Meantime, IDOT says there will be lane closures due to work on the bridges carrying I 74 over Route 150 in Morton this weekend. The work will consist of a portion of each bridge and will require the closure of the left lane of eastbound and westbound I 74 from Friday, February 28th at 5:30pm until Monday, March 3rd at 6:30am. In addition, Jackson Street under I 74 will be CLOSED Sunday, March 2nd from 5am to 10pm to safely remove the section of the bridge at that location. During this time, Route 150 traffic will be routed by way of a marked detour on Morton Avenue, Courtland Street and Veterans Road.
