Multiple lane closures at busy intersetion

ROCKFORD, Ill., (WIFR) -- Multiple lanes will be closed at a typically busy intersection starting Friday morning.

Beginning at 9:00am on Friday, September 15th, multiple lanes will be closed at the intersection of East State Street and Mulford Road.

Lanes will be closed in each direction due to an emergency repair of a manhole for AT&T on Mulford Road just south of East State Street. The work is scheduled to be completed by end of day on Saturday, September 16th, dependent on weather.

The City of Rockford is advising drivers to use caution when approaching the intersection but suggests using alternate routes.
