US 50 Near Lawrenceville is Now Open

(Lawrenceville) — The Illinois Department of Transportation announced yesterday that U.S. 50 between Business U.S. 50 and Illinois 1 in Lawrence County will reopen today. The road had been closed since early September to remove a bridge just east of Illinois 1 and construct new pavement in its place. Motorists should still expect delays and allow extra time for trips through the area. For IDOT updates or to view area construction details visit IDOT’s traveler information map on
