Work to begin on RecPlex Drive intersection in O’Fallon


O’FALLON, Ill. — The Illinois Department of Transportation says lane restrictions will be encountered in the westbound lanes of East U.S. Highway 50 west of Illinois 158 in O’Fallon beginning Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2016, through Jan. 30, 2017.

The lane closure is needed to construct intersection improvements for RecPlex Drive, serving the new McKendree Metro Rec Plex.

The contractor for this project is Poettker Construction.

Lane restrictions may be encountered during evening hours and may result in significant traffic delays. Motorists are encouraged to utilize alternate routes.

Traffic control devices will be utilized to assist motorists during these restrictions. The department asks that motorists be patient, reduce speed, obey all warning signs, and use additional caution when traveling near this work zone. Additional information is also available at
