WASHINGTON, Ill. -- Business 24 in Washington will be closed at the railroad viaduct just west of Wood Street until Friday, June 20

The Illinois Department of Transportation says the closure is necessary for additional drainage work to be completed at the viaduct.

The City of Washington has laid out a preferred route for local delivery trucks during the road closure.

Delivery vehicles should use N. Cummings Lane, Cruger Road and Main Street.

Through traffic is encouraged to use U.S. 24 while the work is being completed.

Please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
