By WSIL Manager

CARTERVILLE -- The Illinois Department of Transportation is asking residents to weigh in on a plan to expand Route 13 between Carterville and Carbondale.

The proposed project would add a third lane in each direction from Shawnee Trail near Carterville to Giant City Road in Carbondale. IDOT says improvements would also be made at intersections along that stretch of Route 13.

According to IDOT, more than 30,000 vehicles travel the corridor each day.

An informational open house on the proposed expansion is scheduled for:

Thursday, May 29

4-7 p.m.

John A. Logan College

Building F, Rooms 118 and 119
