Illinois 40 work zone traffic patterns to change April 8

EAST PEORIA — The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that traffic patterns in the Illinois 40 bridge repair work zone will change Monday, April 8.

This work is on the following three structures:

  • Illinois 40 over Camp Street and Farm Creek
  • Illinois 40 over Washington Street
  • Washington Street over Farm Creek

The Washington Street bridge just south of River Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction; the southbound Washington Street ramp to Interstate 74 will be closed with a detour posted; and Camp Street under Illinois 40 will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

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.
