From the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT): Garden Plain Road in Whiteside County will be closed at the BNSF Railroad crossing from Monday, Sept. 11, through Saturday, Sept. 16. The crossing is located just east of Fenton Road, 5 miles west of Morrison.
The closure will allow the railroad to remove and replace their at-grade crossing and repave the approaches.
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.
