Road to close on Wallace-Freedom townships line

Construction expected to take 1 month, weather permitting

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that lanes that have been closed for construction will reopen, where possible, but other closures will remain over the holiday weekend.

North 36th Road on the Wallace-Freedom townships boundary line will be closed for a culvert replacement beginning Monday, June 17.

The La Salle County Highway Department said the project, located a quarter mile east of County Highway 9 (East Eighth Road), also known as the Prairie Center Blacktop, is expected to take one month, weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to use alternative routes around the construction site.
