If you're traveling in Rockton this weekend, you might need to find an alternate route through town.

According to a press release, the Illinois Department of Transportation is set to close the Hononegah Road bridge over IL-2 in Rockton. Hononegah Road will be closed in both directions on Saturday, September 12 to allow for placing the new concrete wearing surface on the bridge. The roadway will be shut down from 7:00 a.m. until the work is completed. That should be by mid-afternoon.

As always, you're asked to slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones. You can find more construction updates on IDOT District 2's Twitter feed.
