The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that Illinois 32 in La Place will close Monday, Sept. 9.

The closure is necessary for the Decatur and Eastern Illinois Railroad to replace its crossing in La Place and is expected to last seven to 10 days. A detour will be posted.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. 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.
