Troopers will be working with the Illinois Department of Transportation on two major road construction projects in District 10.
The first construction project is set to start on April 3, 2017, running for approximately eight months. It will be on I-57 northbound and southbound between milepost 224 and 236. That is the Sadorus Road Overpass (224) to one mile south of I-74 (236), Champaign County. (Pesotum to Champaign)
The second road construction project is set to start on April 17, 2017 and run several months. It will be eastbound and westbound on the I-74 bridge just west of the Bowman Avenue Interchange, Vermilion County.
Please be prepared to slow down this Construction Zone Season. Remember, work zone speed limits are enforced regardless if the workers are present or not. Troopers in the Photo Enforcement Vans can capture your picture, speed, and license plate information and send the citation in the mail.
Speeding in a construction zone fines start at $375.00.
