PEORIA, Ill. -- The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Monday that the right lane of eastbound US 24 at Kickapoo Creek in Bartonville will be closed, beginning August 21st.

IDOT says the lane closure is necessary for bridge painting to be completed.

The work is expected to take approximately six to eight weeks to complete. The exit to I-474 in the vicinity of this location will remain open.
