Construction traffic is frustrating!
From Illinois Dept. of Transportation-
Changing conditions related to work zones can challenge even the safest drivers. Work zone safety is important to IDOT. We understand that driving through work zones can be frustrating at times and we do our best to help protect your safety while you're getting to your destinations. Driving too fast or recklessly through a highway work zone is dangerous to your life and passengers and it is dangerous to highway workers laboring to improve roadways and further ensure your safety while driving.
We are all responsible for work zone safety, so please use caution and obey speed limits when driving through our work zones. And, remember, using handheld phones is illegal when driving anywhere in Illinois. Help us help you get there safely.
