District 7 of the Illinois Department of Transportation is coordinating with CSXT Railroad on a project to improve the railroad crossing on IL 33 at Willow Street in Effingham. The project is scheduled for Monday, November 9 through Sunday, 15.
CSX will be replacing the crossing surfaces and removing the siding, while IDOT will manage traffic control. During construction, Willow Street will be closed to all traffic at the crossing.
A detour is planned utilizing Fayette Street, Banker Street, and Wabash Avenue.
Every effort will be made to minimize inconvenience to the traveling public, property owners and commercial establishments.
