An Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) rumble strip and guardrail project on Illinois 72, from French Road to the DeKalb County line in Hampshire, began this week.

In order to complete the work, motorists can expect daily lane closures with flaggers at various locations once construction begins. The anticipated completion date for this project is Nov. 30.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signing in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
