The Illinois Department of Transportation says Illinois Route 162 between 23rd Street and Maryville Road in Granite City will be closed for railroad work starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, weather permitting.
The road closure is necessary to allow the Alton & Southern Railroad to rehabilitate its crossing. A marked detour will be in place to guide motorists around the closure. Work is expected to be complete by Thursday, Nov. 8.
IDOT asks that travelers use caution while driving through all work zones. For questions, contact Lou Jethro at (618) 346-3172.
