Niabi Zoo To Open With Road Construction Causing Detour

Posted: Updated:

Opening day for Niabi Zoo's 2014 season is scheduled for Monday, April 7.

Not only will there be new exhibits to check out, there'll also be a new way to get there.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says construction on US 6 and Niabi Zoo Road will be resuming on the seventh as well.

IDOT says work started last fall and was suspended for the winter.

River Valley Construction is replacing the US 6 bridge over Shaffer Creek and reconstructing the intersection at Niabi Zoo Road.

They say reconstruction will require the road to be shut down.

Officials say a sign will be posted to the west to detour traffic.

The work on Niabi Zoo Road is expected to be completed by mid-June while the entire project is scheduled for completion in mid-October.
