Repairs to Railroad Overpass Forces Month-long Road Closure in Du Quoin Starting Monday

DU QUOIN – A road closure will start Monday weather permitting on US 51, between Hickory Street and Division Street in Du Quoin, so repairs can be made to the existing railroad overpass bridge. The road closure is expected to last one month.

Message boards and signs will be in place to remind you about the closure. You should seek other routes or follow the marked detour route along Illinois 154 and Illinois 14. Emergency vehicles will be allowed to cross the bridge.
