Route 13 construction to begin Monday in Carbondale

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Crews will start work next week  on widening part of Route 13 in Carbondale.

IDOT plans to begin construction Monday between Giant City Road and Reed Station Road.

There will be lane reductions in place but IDOT officials say that will be only at night, at first.

IDOT supervising field engineer Ben Wills said the project will likely last until December 2020 and consists of several different phases.

The goal is to have three lanes in each direction between Carbondale and Marion.

"We're reducing the amount of vehicles per lane," Wills said. "That, therefore, eases congestion and makes for a better commute, safer flow of traffic."

The project costs $12 million.
