NT Staff

SHABBONA — Heading north next week?

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that, weather permitting, construction work on U.S. 30 at the Interstate 39 interchange south of Rochelle will begin Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Three Star Painting will be working to paint the two I-39 bridges over U.S. 30. Most of the work for the $721,637 project will done with all lanes open and the contractors working off the U.S. 30 shoulders.

U.S. 30 will be closed Sept. 8-12 so the contractor can complete the painting of the beams above the travel lanes. All the ramps at the interchange will remain open, as the only area closed will be directly under the I-39 bridges. Traffic will be detoured to the nearest interchange and then back to U.S. 30 to exit on the other side of the closure.

* Also, I-39 soon will receive pavement patching from the Marshall County line to the Lee County line for $408,408 by G. M. Sipes Construction of Rushville.
