PEORIA, Ill. -- IDOT announced that road and bridge work is scheduled to begin July 8 on IL 116, approximately five and a half miles west of Farmington.

The work will include removing the existing bridge structure and replacing it with a new bridge structure, milling and resurfacing of the existing pavement, and construction of new shoulders.

A lane closure controlled by temporary traffic signals will be set up and will remain in place for much of the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of November.
