PEORIA, Ill. -- Motorists taking Airport Rd. at I-474 and Dirksen Parkway may want to consider taking an alternate route.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, construction will begin Monday, May 21.

Motorists should expect lane closures at this location.
 
The project consists of milling and paving of the shoulders and mainline work through the intersection, with signal updates and some curb and gutter repairs. This work is expected to take about two months to complete.
 
As always, please slow down and use extreme caution while driving through all work zones.
