A portion of Illinois Route 92 was set to be closed between Andalusia and Illinois City for construction work.

The Illinois Department of Transportation said that starting Tuesday, May 27, 2014 General Contractors would be replacing the bridge over Big Branch Creek between Andalusia and Illinois City.

While crews replace the existing bridge, the roadway will be closed. A detour was planned that routes traffic on 140th Street from IL 192 in Edgington to IL 92 west of Andalusia.

The $1.3 million project was scheduled to last through the summer until August 15.
