Illinois 149/127 Intersection Lane Closure Begins Monday in Murphysboro

MURPHYSBORO – IDOT says starting Monday, there will be an intersection/lane closure on Illinois 149 (Walnut Street)/Illinois 127 (Fifth Street) in Murphysboro so concrete pavement can be replaced at the intersection.

Illinois 149 (Walnut Street) will be reduced to one-way eastbound traffic between Seventh Street and the intersection of Illinois 127/Illinois 13. Westbound traffic on Illinois 13 will be reduced to one lane near the Big Muddy Bridge and must continue north to Illinois 13/127.

A marked detour will be in place to direct traffic around the work zone. Message boards and traffic control devices will be used to inform and direct motorists.

The project is anticipated to be completed by October 15.
