11 to 12 trucks are expected to run each shift during projected snow storm out at the IDOT facility in Lockport.

FULTON - The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that, weather permitting, sidewalk construction along Illinois Route 136 will begin Monday, March 20.

The work zone is located from Fourth Street to Illinois Route 84 in Fulton.

The construction requires lane closures controlled by flaggers. The in-roadway work is expected to be completed by June 15.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through the area. When feasible, alternate routes should be considered to avoid the work area.
