Railroad crossing on Route 108 to close Sept.
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that Illinois 108 will close at the railroad crossing about 3 miles west of Interstate 55 in Montgomery County Tuesday, Sept. 22.
The closure is necessary to resurface the crossing. No traffic will be allowed to cross the tracks during the work, which is expected to be complete Sept. 23. A detour will be posted.
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.
