Construction set to begin on I-39 in Ogle County


OGLE COUNTY (WREX) — If you take I-39 in Ogle County as part of your commute to work, you may want to consider an alternate route.

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced construction on the
bridges carrying northbound and southbound Interstate 39 over Kilbuck Creek in Ogle County will begin on Monday, May 3.

The bridges are located at milepost 107 between exits 111 (Illinois 72) and 104 (Illinois 64).

Work includes deck patching, expansion joint replacement, concrete overlay and structure repairs. One lane of traffic on each bridge will be maintained throughout the project, which is expected to be completed by mid-July.

Drivers can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.

Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
