Road Work Begins Today on I-57 in Jefferson County

MT. VERNON – IDOT says starting today, weather permitting, work will begin on I-57 two miles north of Mount Vernon to two miles south of Dix so a contractor can complete patching, milling and resurfacing operations. This work is expected to take two months.

Traffic will be down to one lane so work can be completed.

You should slow down, watch out for equipment and workers and use extreme caution when traveling through this area. In order to avoid delays, you should seek other routes. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zone as quickly as possible.
