Drivers are being encouraged to seek alternate routes due to an upcoming lane reduction on Route 148. IDOT says that the lane reduction will stretch from the Franklin County line to Waltonville and work begins today. The reduction will be in place from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This project is necessary for shoulder repair operations and work is expected to last for three weeks. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic and delays are expected.
