Detour in place for N. Main construction project for next 10 days

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Drivers that use North Main Street in the construction zone will have to find a different route this week.

Work is expected to start Monday on the railroad crossing between Pierce Avenue and Eddy Avenue.

All through traffic should take a detour using Rt. 251 instead of North Main between Auburn and Riverside. The work should last about 10 days.

This is all part of the North Main reconstruction project. A reminder: Businesses are still open. Many say they've seen fewer customers because of all the road work.
