ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Some Rockford construction companies get started on part one of a three part project to repave part of East State Street.
The cone zone stretches from Mid America Drive, which is by the old American TV and appliance store to Phelps Avenue, near the Walgreens. There will be some lane closures on East State as crews rip up the old road, but all lanes will be re-opened by 11am each morning. This is part of IDOT's project to resurface east state from Mid America Drive all the way to Fairview Avenue. Work should be done in August.
The 15th Avenue Bridge near South Main Street will be closed starting Monday through the next month. This is part of the South Main Street reconstruction project. The South Main and 15th Avenue intersection will we open to all north, south, and west bound traffic. The bridge should reopen in 28 days.
