CARTERVILLE -- Highway construction is changing the way visitors access WSIL-TV, River Radio and TLC.
IDOT has permanently closed Country Aire Drive at the intersection with Route 13 to begin construction on the new Wolf Creek overpass. People wanting to get to WSIL, River Radio or TLC must use alternate routes.
If you are driving East on Route 13:
Go North on Main Street in Crainville, then go East on Marion Street. Turn South on Country Aire Drive and continue on this street until you come to the entrance of WSIL or River Radio. Those going to TLC should turn East on Poteete Drive. (see map below)
If you are driving West on Route 13:
Go North on Samuel Road (across from S.I. Bowl). Turn West at the first stop sign onto Poteete Drive. Continue West until the entrance to TLC or to Country Aire Drive. Take Country Aire Drive South to WSIL or River Radio. (see map below)
The closure at Route 13 and Country Aire Drive is permanent, making way for the new interchange at Wolf Creek Road.
For GPS mapping purposes WSIL-TV's address is 1416 Country Aire Drive, Carterville, IL 62918.
