U.S. 6 bridge work at Peru begins July 27
Removal/replacement of damaged beam at Illinois 251

OTTAWA – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that repairs to a damaged beam on the bridge that carries Fourth Street (U.S. 6) over Illinois 251 in Peru begin July 27.

The work will require intermittent daytime lane closures on Illinois 251 in both directions. The second phase of repairs begins Aug. 4, when Illinois 251 will close at the U.S. 6/Illinois 251 interchange to remove and replace the damaged beam, as well as the following ramps:

• Southbound Illinois 251 to eastbound U.S. 6
• Northbound Illinois 251 to westbound U.S. 6
• Eastbound U.S. 6 to northbound Illinois 251
• Westbound U.S. 6 to southbound Illinois 251

U.S. 6 over Illinois 251 will remain open to through traffic during the work, and detours for Illinois 251 traffic will be posted. All work is expected to be complete Aug. 5.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
