IL RT 78 Reconstruction Project Begins May 1st in Morrison


According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, IL RT 78 from South Cherry Street to Academic Drive in Morrison will be closed starting Wednesday, May 1st.

This closure is to complete the reconstruction of this state highway corridor in Morrison. This part of IL RT 78 is also known as South Cherry Street, East Wall Street, South Clinton Street and Portland Avenue.

Fischer Excavating (Freeport) is the contractor, which is the same contractor that completed the City’s watermain infrastructure for this project. Construction will generally start at Academic Drive and progress north and then west. A detour has been established, but much like last year, local traffic may have limited access to maneuver through areas of the road closure with caution.  Your tolerance and cooperation is appreciated!
