Road Construction At US 6 and Niabi Zoo Road


Road construction just east of Coal Valley, Ill. could cause problems for zoo goers and commuters alike, starting Monday, August 12, 2013.

The project is set to reconstruct the intersection and add turn lanes at US 6 and Niabi Zoo Road.

Crews say the roadway will be down to one lane for much of the  $3.8 million project.

Drivers should expect short delays and should be prepared to stop for flaggers who will be directing traffic through the area.

Work is expected to continue until December 2013.

Replacement of the bridge over Shaffer Creek, just west of Niabi Zoo Road, is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014 and is expected to be completed during the 2014 construction season.
