The Illinois Department of Transportation announced lane restrictions along southbound Route 3 at its intersection with Admiral Weinel Boulevard in Columbia near Walgreens and Sonic.  Admiral Weinel will be closed from Route 3 to 100 feet south of Admiral Trost Road from Nov. 15 to Dec. 30.

These restrictions are required as workers reconstruct Admiral Weinel Boulevard. The work is being completed by Bruce Concrete Construction.

Traffic control devices will assist motorists during these restrictions. IDOT asks that motorists be patient, reduce speed, obey all warning signs, and use additional caution when traveling near this work zone.
