IDOT announces Oakdale Blacktop work may cause delays

WASHINGTON COUNTY — The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced plans for road work on Oakdale Blacktop Road in Washington County starting Monday, April 4, that could lead to travel delays.

The work will intermittently restrict to one lane East Main Street from East Weigh Street in Oakdale to just west of Pleasant Hill Road, weather permitting, between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

The work is necessary to construct a new asphalt overlay on the route and is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.

Delays are expected and motorists are urged to be patient, reduce speed, obey all warning signs and allow extra time when traveling through the work zone.
