Work on U.S. 36 from IL-130 to IL-49 begins May 25

Cape seal surface treatment on U.S. 36

CAMARGO – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that construction on U.S. 36 from Illinois 130 to Illinois 49 begins May 25.

The $933,000 project involves addition of three-feet wide aggregate shoulder and cape seal on the roadway to extend the service life of the existing pavement structure. The project will require intermittent lane closures on U.S. 36 for the duration of the project. Work for this project is expected to be complete by the middle of August, weather permitting.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.

Gov. Pritzker’s historic and bipartisan Rebuild Illinois is investing $33.2 billion into the state’s aging transportation system over six years, creating jobs and promoting economic growth.

Rebuild Illinois is not only the largest capital program in state history, but the first one that touches all modes of Illinois transportation: roads and bridges, transit, waterways, freight and passenger rail, aviation, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
