The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Region 3/District 5, announced that cable guardrail will be installed on Interstate 74 (I-74) from US Route 45 to High Cross Road in Champaign County beginning on Tuesday, September 3, 2013. Weather permitting, the work will be completed by November 2013.
This project includes earthwork, adjustments to the existing drainage system and the installation of a high tension cable guardrail system in the median of the interstate.

Motorists are advised to slow down and drive carefully through this and all work zones.
