Illinois 111In Pontoon Beach Will Have Lane Closures Due To Roadwork

PONTOON BEACH – The Illinois Department of Transportation today announced pavement resurfacing on Illinois 111 from Horseshoe Lake Road to Pontoon Road

It requires intermittent daytime lane closures starting at 7 a.m. Thursday, June 8, weather permitting. Four-lane sections of road will have one lane of traffic open in each direction, at minimum. Flaggers will maintain the two-lane portions of two-way traffic.

Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes during the lane closures. Drivers are urged to reduce speed, be alert for changing conditions, obey all construction signage, and refrain from using mobile devices while approaching and traveling through the work zone.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
