Road Projects Planned in Saline County


By WSIL Manager

WSIL -- The Illinois Department of Transportation is warning drivers about two road projects set to begin Monday in Saline County.

Beginning Monday, July 7, IDOT will close Old Route 13 between Hankins Road and one-half mile west of Carrier Mills Road to replace a bridge. The road is expected to be closed until September 12.

Also beginning Monday, one lane of Route 34 will be closed from west of Harrisburg Lake Road to just north of Raleigh Road. Crews will be removing and replacing the roadway.

Eastbound/southbound traffic on Route 34 will be allowed through the construction area, but westbound/northbound traffic must use an alternate route. The marked detour will be west on Route 13, then north on Harco Road.

Harco Road has a 20-ton weight limit. All larger vehicles must use a different route.

The lane closure on Route 34 is expected to be in place until August 17.
