PEORIA, Ill. -- Construction is set to begin on northbound IL 6 at the ramp to IL 29 in Peoria County on Tuesday, September 18.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says that northbound IL 6 traffic will exit using an alternate route to allow crews to reconstruct the ramp pavement.

IDOT says traffic configuration will remain this way until the end of October.

Pavement removal and reconstruction work already underway will continue on the southbound IL 6 ramp.

As always, please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work construction zones.
