Construction season ramping up

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A few construction projects will be keeping IDOT crews busy this season.

Bloomington Road, from Mattis to Prospect, is getting milled and resurfaced. The bridge on Prospect Avenue over I-74 is getting redone.

Later this summer, microsurfacing will happen on I-74 from, Prospect Avenue to High Cross Road, in Urbana. Around that same time, University Avenue will be getting a makeover, from Cunningham to Wright 

Right now, crews are working on the section of Bradley Avenue over I-57.

IDOT wants to remind people to expect the unexpected while driving through work zones. More than 4,000 crashes happen in work zones every year, so their motto is “See Orange, Slow Down, Save Lives.”
